Marvel Animation's Ultimate Spider-Man series on Disney XD is ending this January, but there are already plans for a replacement.

Scheduled to debut sometime in 2017 according to USA Today, Spider-Man will reportedly offer a "fresh take" on the titular character, heaed up by Robot Chicken's Kevin Shinick and Avengers Assemble's Phil Pignotti.

"Spider-Man is the biggest action hero in the world. He is an iconic character whose duality makes him both relatable and aspirational for the Disney XD audience," said Disney XD's Senior VP of Programming Marc Buhaj. "[Spider-Man will be] a fresh take on a beloved classic that will engage both new and existing Spidey fans with its compelling drama, exciting action and the signature sense of comedy."

Marvel Animation's Senior VP Cort Lane described Spider-Man as a "back-to-basics" approach, "filled with heart and humor."

As mentioned, Spider-Man will replace the currently-airing Ultimate Spider-Man which will end its four-season run with a two-part season finale titled "Graduation Day."
