A few months back it was reported that Static Shock was being developed for a new live action digital program, and while we here have been excited for it, we have noticed very little news has come out in quite awhile for it, so I thought it was time to check on the status for any fans wondering if it was quietly cancelled. Lucky I was able to get a confirmation that the series is still being developed.
Very much so. https://t.co/sOzJojWKce

Unfortunately as with most DC Projects this is as tight-lipped, but it’s great to see the creator of the series Reginald Hudlin acknowledge that it’s still coming.
Static Shock — Writer/producer/director Reginald Hudlin (Best Picture Oscar nominee for producing Django Unchained) leads the creative team behind a live-action adaptation of Static Shock, featuring the African-American super hero Static, aka Virgil Ovid Hawkins. Static Shock is based on the Static comic co-created by the late Dwayne McDuffie with co-writer Robert L. Washington III and artist John Paul Leon, which was originally published by the DC Comics imprint Milestone Comics and, later, by DC Comics. Milestone Media co-founder/comic book artist/TV producer Denys Cowan (the original Static Shock animated series) is collaborating with Hudlin on the new Static Shock.
As always we will keep you updated on the series development and hope to hear some casting news.
