Spider-Man is an animated series that began airing August 19th, 2017. It is the ninth series to focus on the character of Spider-Man after Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, Spider-Man, Spider-Man Unlimited, Spider-Man: The New Animated Series, The Spectacular Spider-Man, and Ultimate Spider-Man.

The series was made to coincide with the Marvel Studios theatrical film Spider-Man: Homecoming. It is the second series, after The Spectacular Spider-Man, to follow Peter Parker through his time in high school.

This series is set in the same universe as Guardians of the Galaxy and the fifth season of Avengers Assemble.

The series was renewed for a second season in early 2018 which premiered on June 18, 2018. The show was retitled Marvel's Spider-Man: Maximum Venom for its third season, which was announced on May 30, 2019 and premiered on April 19, 2020.


A gifted teenager named Peter Parker is given spider-like powers when he is bitten by a radioactive spider during a school field trip to OsCorp. After the death of his Uncle Ben at the hands of a burglar, Parker comes to his own terms of becoming a masked superhero named Spider-Man, learning to balance his crime-fighting career with his new enrollment at Horizon High, a school for students with genius-level intellect.


Marvel announced that Ultimate Spider-Man would come to an end and be replaced with a new series titled Spider-Man. It will focus on the early days of Peter Parker starting off as Spider-Man, pulling a lot from Dan Slott's run on the comics. Kevin Shinick, of Robot Chicken fame, will be the story lead.[1]

Merchandising for the series revealed that it will feature Peter Parker as Spider-Man, Gwen Stacy as Ghost-Spider, Miles Morales as Spy-D, and some version of Venom.[2]


This series is set in the same universe as the Guardians of the Galaxy and just the fifth season of Avengers Assemble. This caused confusion as the rest of Avengers Assemble is in the same continuity as Ultimate Spider-Man.
