X-Men '97 Season 2 recently got an update from one of the animated series' executive producers. The Marvel Disney+ show, which serves as a revival to the X-Men: The Animated Series (1992-97), is only a few months away from being released on Disney+, recently revealed more information and key art at San Diego Comic-Con , and now we know that a second season is already in development.

Following rumors spreading that Disney and Marvel Studios will be making budget cuts, some fans were concerned that some Marvel animated projects like Spider-Man: Fresh Man Year could get canceled. However, nothing has been canceled and the anime will likely be released in 2024. As for X-Men '97, it looks like there are currently no plans to cancel the nostalgic animated series.

X-Men '97 Season 2 Update

At San Diego Comic-Con 2023, X-Men ’97 head writer and executive producer Beau DeMayo assured fans (via The Direct) that X-Men '97 Season 2 is still currently in the works at Disney+.

He said that the creative team behind the highly-anticipated animated series is writing the X-Men '97 season finale for Season 2 "right now":

“Really, really well. It’s like I said in there, we’re just in post [production] on Season 1… Literally writing the season finale for Season 2 right now. It’s going well. I could not be happier... It’s a gargantuan effort with a truly like guerilla tactic, small, but very dedicated team.”

Based on this update, it looks like the creative team already have a clear direction on where they want to take X-Men '97's story, so we can expect that the first 10 episodes in Season 1 will not have such a conclusive finale. Marvel fans will likely see the X-Men fight different villains throughout the first couple of seasons.
