FX has exited the highly anticipated Deadpool TV series from Donald Glover and his brother, Stephen Glover.
The news was confirmed Saturday, nearly one year after the animated project received a 10-episode order for FX’s sister channel FXX; however, the network reassured viewers it would continue to work with Marvel TV on the live-action series Legion, which will return for its second season next week.
“Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel’s Deadpool animated series,” the network said in a statement. “FX will no longer be involved with the project. FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on Legion, which will continue.”
The series was schedule to premiere in 2018. It’s currently unclear if Marvel TV and ABC Studios will still pursue the show.
