Marvel has added a new TV series to its slate of upcoming Disney+ shows coming over the next few years.

Despite the death of star Chadwick Boseman, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) still plans to release Black Panther 2 in the next couple of years, and now there seems to be more on the way from his world.

Director Ryan Coogler, who helmed both the first Black Panther movie and the upcoming second one is now attached to the TV show, which will be based in Wakanda.

Kingdom of Wakanda coming to Disney+

Ryan Coogler released a statement about the upcoming Black Panther series, titled Kingdom of Wakanda.

“It’s an honor to be partnering with The Walt Disney Company. Working with them on Black Panther was a dream come true,” Coogler said. “As avid consumers of television, we couldn’t be happier to be launching our television business with Bob Iger, Dana Walden, and all the amazing studios under the Disney umbrella.”

This is part of the fast-growing MCU world that now spans more than just big blockbuster movies. The first Disney+ series, WandaVision, has received great critical acclaim while presenting a TV show that works outside the box of a basic superhero action movie.
