Hulu has canceled M.O.D.O.K. after a single season.
Variety reports that the streaming service has opted to not pick up the Marvel stop-motion animation series for another season. The first, and now only, season premiered in May 2021 and ran for 10 episodes.
The series focused on “the megalomaniacal supervillain M.O.D.O.K. (Patton Oswalt), [who] has long pursued his dream of one day conquering the world. But after years of setbacks and failures fighting the Earth’s mightiest heroes, M.O.D.O.K. has run his evil organization A.I.M. into the ground. Ousted as A.I.M.’s leader, while also dealing with his crumbling marriage and family life, the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing is set to confront his greatest challenge yet: a midlife crisis!”
Oswalt took to Twitter shortly after the news was made public to express his sadness at the series’ cancelation. He wrote, “Got to work with the best writers, a dream voice cast, and [Marvel] let us run amok in their toy box. Another great experience. Forward!”
*sigh* oh well

In addition to Oswalt, the cast of M.O.D.O.K. included Melissa Fumero, Aimee Garcia, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ben Schwartz, Beck Bennett, Jon Daly, and Sam Richardson. The series was created by Oswalt and Jordan Blum, who also executive produced.
Do you wish M.O.D.O.K. would have been renewed for a Season 2? When do you think the character might appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
