Back at 2021’s Disney+ Day, Marvel announced a new animated series called “Spider-Man: Freshman Year.” The series follows Peter Parker on his way to becoming Spider-Man in the MCU, with a journey unlike any we’ve ever seen and a style that celebrates the character’s early comic book roots. Jeff Trammel is writing and executive producing the show.

Late last year, Disney announced at a special preview screening of the second season of “What If?” that the show had been renamed “Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.”

Recently, Disney has updated the official Disney+ preview website to give us a new look at the show’s logo.

The animation for “Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man” will be produced by Japanese digital animation studio, Polygon Pictures, who have previously worked on Apple’s “Stillwater”, along with “Ajin”, “Godzilla: Kaijū Wakusei”, “Mech Cadets”, and “Transformers: War for Cybertron”.

Back at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2022, it was revealed that Disney has already picked up the series for a second season, which was originally going to be called “Spider-Man: Sophomore Year”.

Personally, I don’t think it’s a bad idea for Marvel to rename the series, since, globally, using US high school terminology might not work as well as a more generic name.

“Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man” is scheduled to arrive on Disney+ in 2024, though this could still change.
