Nick Fury, Samuel L. Jackson’s iconic Avengers character, is set to grace our TV screens, with a new Marvel and Disney Plus series in the works.

Leader of S.H.I.E.L.D. and founder of the Avengers, the one and only Nick Fury is about to give us more memorable one-liners, words of wisdom, and more badass saves.

A new Marvel and Disney Plus TV show is in the works featuring Nick Fury, reports Variety, with Kyle Bradstreet, writer for Mr. Robot, attached as writer and executive producer.

Samuel L Jackson, who has portrayed Fury since the end credits of the first Iron Man film, is in talks to return to the role. At the time, he had a nine-film contract, which technically ended with 2019’s Captain Marvel.

However, Jackson was last seen portraying the character in 2019’s Spider-Man: Far from Home, which was released after Captain Marvel.

Nick Fury Show: What do we know so far?

There is very little information available on the Nick Fury show. But we do know that this won’t be the first time that Jackson’s Nick Fury has appeared on the small screen.

The first Marvel TV spin-off, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., featured Fury in numerous cameos throughout the early seasons before his ‘death’ in Captain America: Winter Soldier.

Since Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far from Home have revealed Fury to be alive and well, and back at S.H.I.E.L.D., fans can assume that the show will take place after the events of those films.

However, there are two ways that the Nick Fury show could unfold. The Fury and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) seen during Far from Home were actually Skrulls Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) and Soren (Sharon Blynn) in disguise. The show could follow their adventures on Earth as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.

On the other hand, the show could follow the real Fury, who was seen vacationing on a Skrull ship in the end-credits scene. The show might take place in space and see Fury helping the refugee Skrulls find a new home. At this point, all is conjecture.

The Nick Fury show joins a host of Marvel and Disney Plus shows on the roster, including WandaVision, set for release in 2020, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and She-Hulk. Other shows in development include What/ If, Hawkeye, Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and Silk.
