Marvel Television Announces Main Cast For 'New Warriors'

A bevy of comic-book inspired television series are coming out soon and one such series is Marvel Television, Freeform, and ABC Signature Studios' New Warriors. Premiering in 2018, it will see Marvel Television take on the comedic genre of television and will revolve around a group of "six young people learning to cope with their abilities in a world where bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates."

Now, Marvel Television has announced the full main cast for the series and some character breakdowns as well.


Milana Vayntrub (“This Is Us,” “Silicon Valley”) as Doreen Green a.k.a Squirrel Girl
Doreen is a totally empowered fangirl who has the incredible powers of a… squirrel. Her greatest quality is her optimism and her best friend is a pet squirrel, Tippy Toe.



Derek Theler (“Baby Daddy”) as Craig Hollis a.k.a Mister Immortal
Craig can’t die… or so he says. Although Craig’s superpower seems amazing, he hasn’t made use of it at all—he figures if he has all the time in the world to learn how to do anything heroic, what’s the rush?



Jeremy Tardy (“Dear White People,” “Ten Days in The Valley) as Dwayne Taylor a.k.a Night Thrasher
Brilliant and noble and maybe a bit full of himself, Dwayne is a shameless self-promoter and entrepreneur who also deeply believes in justice.



Calum Worthy (“Austin & Ally,” “Cassandra French’s Finishing School”) as Robbie Baldwin a.k.a Speedball
Robbie is an impulsive people-pleaser with a misplaced sense of confidence who throws kinetic balls of energy that are completely out of control.



Matthew Moy (“2 Broke Girls, “Steven Universe”) as Zack Smith a.k.a. Microbe
Zack is a shy hypochondriac whose ability is that he can talk to germs that tell him where you’ve been, what you ate and with whom you hung out with. It’s impossible to keep secrets around him.



Kate Comer (“Hello My Name is Doris,” “The Comeback”) as Deborah Fields a.k.a. Debrii
Deborah is proud, funny and quick-witted. A low-level telekinetic, very low like she can move a paper cup.


“I am thrilled beyond belief to be working with this incredible group of actors. They are funny, sincere, eager, charming and perfectly embody these characters. It’ll be a blast and an honor to create this show with each of them,” said the series showrunner Kevin Biegel.

“We’re so lucky to have assembled such a diverse and incredibly talented cast,” said executive producer and Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb. “We can’t wait for the fans to see what’s in store when we unleash these iconic characters into the world!”

“At Freeform, we are committed to finding distinct and entertaining characters that our audience can enjoy and relate to,” said Elizabeth Boykewich, senior vice president, Casting and Talent, Freeform. “We are excited to be working with Marvel Television to bring these fiercely average superheroes to life and watch them take on the world.”

Co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios, the series will have Kevin Biegel serve as showrunner and executive producer, with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory executive producing.

As mention before Marvel's New Warriors is expected to air sometime in 2018.
