‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ was one of the most highly anticipated MCU series, but upon release, the show received mixed reception due to some very valid reasons. First, the show had lackluster CGI effects despite each episode costing around $25 million, which totals to $225 million. No one could explain how such an expensive show could look so bad; the whole character had to be CGI, that’s understandable; however, more often than not, She-Hulk truly looked out of place.
The second most-often criticism was directed toward the writing itself; the show featured plenty of cameos, plenty of jokes, mindless fun, and meta-humor so that it could hide how vapid and flat the whole storyline was and how it added nothing of importance to the grander MCU. There’s also that twerking scene, but I’m not even going to comment on that you either hated it or loved it.
Rumors that ‘She-Hulk’ will get a second season were a hot topic in the summer of 2023, with some rumors going as far as to state that the development of the show will begin after the SAG-AFTRA strike concludes. This was strange, to say the least, because a much better-received series, with a lot more content to bring to the table, never received season 2, so it always seemed a bit far-fetched that people want more of ‘She-Hulk.’
In any case, while we can only guess which projects Marvel Studios will pick up for additional episodes, Tatiana Maslany gave her educated opinion on whether there will be Season 2 of the show or not. During Codenames LIVE! – The New Class stream Tatiana was asked whether the fans can hope for season 2 and she was rather straightforward, nope.
Tim Riel: “Should we hope for a Season 2?”
Maslany: “I don’t think so. I think we blew our budget, and Disney was like, ‘No thanks.'”
We’ve already mentioned how a single episode costs around $25 million, so Tatiana’s reasoning doesn’t seem to be far-fetched, and it doesn’t make sense to invest such a huge amount of money into “mixed-review” projects now that Disney has record-low profits all across the board, but most notably when it comes to MCU projects.
