Disney XD’s senior VP and GM of programming, Marc Buhaj, announced that Season 3 of the animated series Marvel’s Spider-Man has been ordered for a spring 2020 premiere. The series follows Peter Parker as he learns to navigate life as the teenage superhero Spider-Man. Titled Marvel’s Spider-Man: Maximum Venom, Season 3 finds Spider-Man pushed to his breaking point when Venom summons an earth-shattering threat from its home planet.
Buhaj commented, “We are excited to have Spider-Man and Venom leading this brand-new chapter. These two characters are fan favorites and the Marvel Animation team has delivered a smart, action-packed season for a new generation. We’re grateful for the opportunity to further expand the world of Marvel’s Spider-Man with Venom and continue fresh, heroic storytelling with this third season order.”
“This is the most epic conflict in the history of Marvel Animation,” added Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment’s Senior VP, Cort Lane. “We planted the seeds in two seasons of Marvel’s Spider-Man and three seasons of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but you don’t need to have watched them to be blown away by this colossal confrontation. While a ton of guest heroes will be on hand, Peter Parker’s special link to Venom makes him the only hero who can tip the scales to save humanity.”
Season 2 episodes of Marvel’s Spider-Man will debut in September on Disney XD and DisneyNOW. Beginning with a five-part Superior Spider-Man story arc, the new storyline will feature Doctor Octopus, who has taken over Spider-Man’s body, intending to use his new spider powers to further his evil agenda.
During the first part of its second season, Disney XD’s Marvel’s Spider-Man ranked as the #1 series on cable in the Monday 6:30 p.m. half-hour timeslot among Kids 6-11 and Boys 6-11.
Produced by Marvel Animation, the series’ creative team includes executive producers Alan Fine (Marvel’s The Avengers), Joe Quesada (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble), Dan Buckley (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble), Cort Lane (Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man) and Eric Radomski (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble).
