According to Deadline, Hulu is close to renewing the TV show for a third season.

Things between Marvel TV and Netflix may be winding down, but Hulu and its Disney-owned corporate cousin are just getting started it seems.

File of fans of Marvel comic books march to Hollywood Walk of Fame Star, in Hollywood, California on December 28, 2018. On Monday, Hulu announced a new partnership with Marvel Television that would produce four new animated shows based on obscure-but-beloved comic characters: M.O.D.O.K., Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler, and Howard the Duck.

Much like Netflix's Defenders mini-series, these four animated shows will culminate in a team-up event called The Offenders, which will feature the characters from each previous series. Like every one of the new series, Loeb will also serve as an EP on the show of the politically progressive Tigra and Dazzler as they try to get their superpowered heads, hands and hearts around life in the City of Angels.

The second series is Marvel's Tigra & Dazzler Show, to be co-written and executive produced by former Netflix talk show personality Chelsea Handler.

Hit-Monkey is written by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, who are best known for directing movies such as Office Christmas Party and Blade of Glory. A M.O.D.O.K. series is being created by Patton Oswald and Jordan Blum, centered around the egomaniacal villain as he struggles to keep control of his evil organization and demanding family.

Hit-Monkey: "Marvel's Hit-Monkey tells the tale of a wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin, as he cuts a wide swath through the Tokyo underworld in this darkly cinematic and brutally amusing revenge saga". Kevin Smith and Dave Willis are writer and producers on Howard the Duck, with Loeb.

Marvel fans have long wanted Kevin Smith to take on the foul-mouthed Howard the Duck character, and those dreams are finally coming true.

Here's the official description: "In Marvel's Tigra & Dazzler Show, two woke Super Heroes and best friends, Tigra and Dazzler, fight for recognition among powered people who make up the eight million stories in Los Angeles". Smith is taking on the Howard the Duck series.

Howard the Duck is one of four animated Marvel series ordered by Hulu, all of which have incredibly compelling creative teams.

No launch dates were announced but the shows will all be under the purview of executive vice president of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. Jeph Loeb will executive produce.
