"Silk: Spider Society": Sony is Working on New Spider-Man Series for Amazon

Current "The Walking Dead" showrunner will act as a producer

It has been known since September 2020 that Sony is working on several series for various Spider-Man characters in addition to the cinematic expansion of the Sony Spider-Man Universe. As was recently made known, the first series project is now being set in motion. It is titled "Silk: Spider Society" and deals with the eponymous Marvel heroine Cindy Moon aka Silk. She shares a similar fate to Peter Parker, as she too was bitten by a radioactive spider. Likewise, she develops some spider-like superpowers and even has a very special connection to her male counterpart Peter Parker, which will surely be addressed in the series. Silk is one of the newer Marvel characters and was created by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos. She has, however, previously made appearances in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and "Avengers: Infinity War", where she was played by Tiffany Espensen. It is not clear yet whether she will return to her role or whether they will recast the superheroine.

The first of many Spider-Man spin-offs from Sony will be showrunned by Angela Kang, who currently occupies the same position on "The Walking Dead". The script was penned by "Dash & Lily" writer Lauren Moon, while the series will be produced by "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" creators Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The series is expected to run in the United States on MGM+. Depending on how quickly further cast and crew signings progress, an early 2024 release date seems likely.
