Steven S. DeKnight has left his position as showrunner for Netflix's upcoming Jupiter's Legacy.
According to Deadline, DeKnight left the show over creative differences. The search for his replacement is currently underway, but it will not impact the show's filming schedule. As of this wiring, around four of the season's eight episodes have been filmed.
Much appreciated. Love the show, love everyone involved. Hope it’s the raging success it deserves to be. A lot of people are working very hard on it. When it comes out, watch it! 🤘 https://t.co/XRv32szIf8— Steven DeKnight (@stevendeknight) September 16, 2019
Aside from serving as showrunner, DeKnight also directed and wrote the first episode of the series. He was an executive producer alongside Mark Millar, Frank Quitely, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Dan McDermott.
Based on the graphic novel by Miller artist Quitely, Jupiter's Legacy follows the children of a revered first generation of superheroes, who struggle to live up to their parents' legacies.
DeKnight signed a multi-year deal with Netflix last June to produce content for the streaming giant. It is unclear if that deal will be impacted by his departure from Jupiter's Legacy.
Netflix's Jupiter's Legacy stars Josh Duhamel as The Utopian, Ben Daniels as Brain-Wave, Leslie Bibb as Lady Liberty, Elena Kampouris as Chloe Sampson, Andrew Horton as Brandon Sampson, Mike Wade as The Flare and Matt Lanter as Skyfox.
