2018 Superhero TV: Dates For New And Returning Shows

Not to be outdone by their big screen blockbuster brethren, TV superheroes have exploded in popularity in recent years, and an increasing number of studios and networks are bringing comic book heroes and villains to the small screen. Even before the new year officially starts, fans are already guaranteed over 25 different superhero TV shows in 2018, with live-action favorites sharing the schedule with animated hits. And we'll definitely hear about even more on the way as the months go by.

Nick Venable

Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
