When it comes to canceling series that don’t meet expectations, Netflix isn’t the only streaming service with an itchy trigger finger. Hulu has canceled Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. after only one season.

The show was originally pitched as one of four Marvel themed animations on Hulu, with the plan being that the four would converge for an event series called “The Offenders.” But two of them — Howard The Duck and Tigra & Dazzler — weren’t ever taken forward, and the other — Hit-Monkey — is still awaiting its fate after the first series aired last November. The mood music doesn’t sound overly good for it, given Hulu cancelled another Marvel project — Helstrom — at the end of 2020.

M.O.D.O.K. was a high-profile stop-motion animated series that included Patton Oswalt as co-executive producer and protagonist. After a series of losses against Earth’s superheroes, he played M.O.D.O.K., a disillusioned supervillain suffering from a mid-life crisis. Over the course of its ten-episode run, the sitcom received an astounding 88 percent fresh rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes.

Indeed, with Marvel owners Disney having a great deal of success pushing Marvel projects onto Disney Plus with the likes of Wandavision, Moon Knight and Hawkeye, it’s doubtful we’ll see any other platforms getting much of a look in from now on. Indeed, all five of the Hulu shows mentioned above were the product of Marvel Television — a TV division of Marvel that closed down in 2020, with oversight of TV projects reverting to Marvel Studio.

But, as Deadline points out, the end of M.O.D.O.K. shouldn’t be a warning sign that Hulu is going soft on animated adult comedy as a genre. It is, after all, still home to the likes of Futurama and Solar Opposites, so this doesn’t necessarily represent a Netflix-style bonfire of entertainment.
