Back in November 2021, on Disney+ Day, it was revealed that Marvel was working on an X-Men animated reboot titled “X-Men ’97.”

“X-Men ’97” will be a continuation of the beloved 1990s “X-Men” animated series that ran for five seasons (76 episodes), from 1992 through 1997. Following a familiar team with the “DNA of the original show,” an impactful event in “X-Men ‘97” will launch the reunited X-Men into an all-new chapter that will resonate with fans of the original series.

The release window for the series has always been somewhat elusive. Initially, there was speculation that it would make its debut in Fall 2023, and then rumors surfaced pointing to a January 2023 release.

However, The Hollywood Reporter has now revealed that “X-Men ’97” is scheduled to premiere on Disney+ in early 2024. Typically, “early in the year” refers to any month between January and April.

The show is being described, by THR sources’ who have seen it, as retro and a love letter to the original. A season two remains in the works.

The Hollywood Reporter also confirmed again that season two remains in the works.

The animated series will explore new stories in the iconic 90s timeline of the original series featuring beloved characters like Professor X, Wolverine, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Jubilee, Rogue, Storm, Gambit, Magneto, and more.  Nightcrawler, Cable, Bishop, Morph, Forge, and Sunspot will also appear in the series.
