Jupiter's Legacy Asks Big Questions. Netflix Cancelled It.

Episode 68 June 24, 2021

On this episode of Out of Frame, we’re diving into a superhero series that Netflix unfortunately cancelled… Jupiter’s Legacy.

Against all odds, Jupiter’s Legacy features the most relevant and important themes and ideas of any new show in recent years. Amid a media environment rife with nihilism, anti-heroes, and unchecked power, Jupiter’s Legacy makes a refreshing case for upholding values against all else, even a crumbling world.
