Disney + Adding New Series

Marvel is working on a new Disney Plus series based on Nick Fury, and Samuel L. Jackson is back to reprise the role.

This is according to a Variety report, which says Jackson is starring as Nick Fury, but is otherwise light on character and plot details. That said, it sounds like Kyle Bradstreet, a TV writer and producer known for Mr. Robot, is signed on to write and executive produce the Nick Fury Disney Plus series.

The SHIELD commander made his first appearance in the MCU during the after-credits scene from 2008's Iron Man, with Jackson reprising his role in the 2010 follow-up and eventually becoming a mainstay in the long-running Avengers saga.
