The news for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service is coming at a furious pace these days. No official release date has been announced, but the highly-anticipated new platform is slated to open sometime later this year. To fully prepare for the rollout, Disney has been developing a large number of their intellectual properties into new shows for the service. We now have word that a Disney Villains series is currently in development with production expected to start next year.
According to a tweet from Production Weekly, Steven Pearlman (Once Upon a Time) and Michael Seitzman (Quantico) have been tapped to develop Disney Villains for the Disney+ service. Production is scheduled to begin in Dublin, Ireland at Ardmore Studios later next year. No details on the show have been released yet, and with production not starting until 2020, this new Villains based series definitely won’t debut with the starting lineup of Disney+ offerings. Though we can gather from this production announcement that the new show will most likely be live-action based.

Disney Villains will join the list of new series developed from existing Disney properties. We’ve already had official word of two Star Wars shows as well as at least one Marvel-based series on the way. In addition, there are announced plans for Monsters Inc. and High School Musical shows. These are probably just the tip of the iceberg though as far as Disney properties getting new lives on the online service and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
