Marvel’s TV enterprise has grown just a little bit smaller, as their animated series MODOK won’t be coming back for a second season. The stop-motion show starred Patton Oswalt as the titular bigheaded Marvel baddie in a comedy series about him trying to balance his somewhat normal life as a suburban family man in the midst of a divorce with that of being a supervillain bent on global domination.

Variety broke the news on Friday; the series premiered on Hulu in May 2021 to solid reviews and featured Aimee Garcia, Ben Schwartz, Melissa Fumero, and Nathan Fillion among its voice cast. Originally, the MODOK show was going to be the character’s attempt at a big break after having previously been a recurring baddie in earlier Marvel cartoons, not to mention that he was at one point going to be the villain in Freeform’s attempt at a New Warriors show. Back in 2019, MODOK was one of four animated Marvel series greenlit by Hulu, with the hopes that the shows would cross over for an animated special dubbed “The Offenders.” But two of the shows, Howard the Duck and Tigra & Dazzler, were canceled before they could air, while MODOK and Hit-Monkey managed to make it to release.
