Many streaming companies have an itchy trigger finger when it comes to cancelling series that aren’t meeting expectations. Netflix isn’t the only firm with this problem. Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. has been cancelled by Hulu after just one season, according to Deadline.

One of Patton Oswalt’s most well-known roles was that of the show’s co-executive producer and the show’s narrator, a stop-motion animated series. A disillusioned supervillain with a mid-life crisis, M.O.D.O.K. (Michael O’Keefe), was played by him. Over the course of its ten-episode run, the show received an 88 percent fresh rating from Rotten Tomatoes critics.

Marvel allowed him and his team to “go crazy in their toy box,” he wrote on Twitter. It was Melissa Fumero, Aimee Garcia, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ben Schwartz and Beck Bennett who provided the voices for this fantasy voice cast.

As part of an event series named “The Offenders,” four Marvel-themed Hulu animations were to come together for this series. Howard The Duck and Tigra & Dazzler, on the other hand, were never given a second season after the first aired in November of last year, and Hit-Monkey is still awaiting a decision after the first series aired in November of last year. Given that Hulu terminated another Marvel project, Helstrom, at the end of 2020, the show’s theme song doesn’t sound all that appropriate.

It’s unlikely that any other platforms will get much of a look from Marvel owners Disney going forwards, given the success of Marvel ventures like Wandavision, Moon Knight, and Hawkeye on Disney Plus. Even the Hulu shows mentioned above were produced by Marvel Television, which will shut down in 2020 and revert back to Marvel Studio’s control of TV productions.

M.O.D.O.K.’s cancellation by Hulu shouldn’t be taken as a hint that the streaming service is losing interest in animated adult comedies, as noted by Deadline. After all, it’s still home to shows like Futurama and Solar Opposites, so it’s not exactly a Netflix-style conflagration of amusement.
