"Looking at the show and the reception we saw for season one, we were humbled by how our guests' stories were resonating and inspiring fans. We are all so grateful to these incredible talents for sharing their journeys with all of us," said Quesada. "The mission of Marvel's Storyboards has been to show that we are all storytellers, and no matter how we express it, those stories have a way of connecting us and lifting all of our spirits in challenging times, regardless of the medium. Marvel's Storyboards season two takes that notion even further into the world of sports, music, media, and entertainment, and we can't wait for you all to experience these stories yourselves!"
