A live-action New Warriors half-hour television show featuring Squirrel Girl is in development from Marvel Television and ABC Studios, according to TVLine. ABC is reportedly not looking to air it themselves, instead shopping it around to unnamed cable and streaming outlets.

In comic books, Squirrel Girl has not been featured as part of the New Warriors, but Fabian Nicieza has later said he had plans to add her to the team at some point in his run. It was later revealed that Squirrel Girl and New Warriors co-founder Speedball had a brief romance.

Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick has previously expressed interest in playing Squirrel Girl in a then-prospective Marvel feature, as has Stranger Things's Shannon Purser.
