After almost 100 years of successfully keeping humankind safe, the world’s first generation of superheroes are forced to turn to their children to carry on their legacy. Naturally, tensions arise among the young crew, with each member setting out to prove their individual worth while simultaneously struggling to live up to the public reputations of their parents.
Jupiter’s Legacy sees Duhamel joined in the cast by Leslie Bibb, Ben Daniels, Elena Kampouris, Andrew Horton, Mike Wade, Matt Lanter, and Ian Quinlan. Executive producers of the new sci-fi/adventure series include Mark Millar, Frank Quitely, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, Dan McDermott, Steven S. DeKnight, James Middleton, and Sang Kyu Kim.
Rightfully, Jupiter’s Legacy was named by Complex earlier this year as among the most anticipated TV shows of 2021. Netflix, notably, first acquired Millar’s comic book house back in 2017. In 2018, the streaming platform announced a deal with Millar that would ultimately encompass two shows (Jupiter’s Legacy among them) and three movies.
