Actress Tatiana Maslany said she doubts a second season of the Marvel superhero series “She-Hulk: Attorney At Law” will happen.

“I don’t think so. I think we blew our budget, and Disney was like, ‘No thanks,’” the actress said while appearing on “Codenames LIVE! — The New Class” on Twitch, per Deadline.

Maslany starred in “She-Hulk,” playing the character Jennifer Walters, an attorney who also happens to be a 6-foot-7-inch green superhero. 

Her co-stars on the show include Jameela Jamil, Mark Ruffalo, Ginger Gonzaga, Tim Roth, Megan Thee Stallion, and others. The miniseries originally aired in 2022 on the Disney+ streaming service. 

Head writer Jessica Gao also mentioned previously that a “She-Hulk” season 2 would be unlikely. 

“I’ve been writing for TV for a very long time, and you can never, ever guarantee that you’re gonna get another season, especially for a Season 1 show,” Gao told Deadline in October 2022. She said the team wrote the final episode with the intention of having it serve as a series finale if necessary.

“So, the prudent thing for a writer working on a season one show is to tell a satisfying and complete story so that if it did end that way, you felt like you at least told one full story but still left the door open for, you know, six seasons and a movie.”

“She-Hulk” got a mix of one-star and ten-star reviews when it was on the air, though many of the negative reviews were blamed on the practice of “review bombing,” or intentionally flooding review sites with bad reviews to drive down the score. The same was said of the ten-star reviews, with some claiming certain fans were just trying to boost the score.

Many viewers took issue with the show’s over-the-top feminist messaging and contrived storylines. A clip of Walters (Maslany) complaining to Hulk about getting cat-called and having to control her anger went viral online as fans mocked the messaging.

Marvel fans pointed out that Bruce Banner was forced to control his anger in much more serious situations, making Walters’ claims look weak. This moment came up in many of the negative reviews as well.

“She-Hulk” currently has a 77% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes and a 32% average audience score.
