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.
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.
Merchandising for the series revealed that it will feature the Peter Parker Spider-Man, Gwen Stacy Spider-Woman, Miles Morales Spider-Man, and some version of Venom.
This series would begin crossing over into the fifth season of Avengers Assemble and third season of Guardians of the Galaxy. This would create confusion as they had been previously established to be in the same continuity as Ultimate Spider-Man.
