The poster features Josh Duhamel as Sheldon Sampson “The Utopian”, Leslie Bibb as his wife Grace “Lady Liberty,” and their on-screen kids, Elena Kampouris as Chloe Sampson and Andrew Horton as Brandon Sampson “Paragon.”
Netflix’s official synopsis for the series reads: “After nearly a century of keeping mankind safe, the world’s first generation of superheroes must look to their children to continue the legacy. But tensions rise as the young superheroes, hungry to prove their worth, struggle to live up to their parents’ legendary public reputations — and exacting personal standards. Based on the graphic novels by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely, Jupiter’s Legacy is an epic superhero drama that spans decades and navigates the complex dynamics of family, power, and loyalty.”
Millar is attributed as an executive producer alongside his Jupiter’s Legacy co-creator Frank Quitely. Other EPs are Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, Dan McDermott, Steven S. DeKnight, James Middleton, and Sang Kyu Kim (who finished the series as showrunner after DeKnight left the show).
