Details about Marvel’s forthcoming Black Panther spinoff series have been sparse since the studio first announced it a couple years back. But ahead of What If …?’s season 2 premiere on Disney Plus, the streamer’s just shared a few promising details about what to expect from The Eyes of Wakanda.

Along with reminders about the impending arrivals of X-Men ‘97 and Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man (formerly titled Spider-Man: Freshman Year), and new details about What If … season 2, Disney Plus announced today that its upcoming Black Panther spinoff series is titled The Eyes of Wakanda. Rather than focusing on a singular Black Panther, The Eyes of Wakanda will tell the stories of multiple warriors who “have been tasked to travel the world retrieving dangerous vibranium artifacts” from different points in the nation’s history.

In the wake of Chadwick Boseman’s death in 2020, Marvel was forced to switch gears abruptly with its live-action Black Panther films in which Letitia Wright’s Shuri has since taken over the titular mantle. Though Black Panther: Wakanda Forever established a new status quo for the films, it’s been unclear how long that might last given the larger multiversal rumbling in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. That could be explored in The Eyes of Wakanda, especially considering how keen Marvel’s been on having its animated shows connect to its live-action projects lately. But it sounds like we’re still a ways out from Marvel and Disney giving everyone a better sense of what the show will bring to the table.
