The speculation is sadly correct. The teen superhero comedy, which starred Scarlett Estevez (Lucifer) and J.R. Villarreal, will not be returning with new episodes — though fans can (re)watch Season 1 on Disney+.
In the show, Violet Rodriguez, an everyday Mexican American teen, is chosen by a magical luchador mask which transforms her into Ultra Violet, a superhero fighting crime alongside her luchador uncle, Cruz, also known as Black Scorpion. Although Cruz takes Violet under his wing to teach her the responsibilities of her special powers, she doesn’t always see eye to eye with him when it comes to his methods for capturing crooks. In the meantime, she must keep her superhero identity secret from her parents and her older brother Santiago (“Tiago”), as well as her friends and schoolmates. However, she does lean on one close confidante: her best friend Maya Miller-Martinez, who provides advice and assists with documenting Ultra Violet’s adventures on social media.
Disney star Scarlett Estevez leads the all Latinx cast, including J.R. Villarreal (“Akeelah and the Bee”) as Cruz De la Vega/Black Scorpion, Marianna Burelli (“Paramedicos”) as Nina Rodriguez, Juan Alfonso (“American Princess”) as Juan Carlos Rodriguez, Brandon Rossel (“Fast Layne”) as Santiago “Tiago” Rodriguez, newcomers Zelia Ankrum as Maya Miller-Martinez and Bryan Blanco as Luis León.
“Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion” is developed and executive produced by Eric S. Garcia and Leo Chu (“Alexa & Katie”), who also serve as showrunners. Additional executive producers include Joe Nussbaum, Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit.
