Most modern superhero shows seem to follow the formula of giving the hero confidantes who become a support team who end up becoming superheroes on their own. Giving Squirrel Girl an established team of heroes just skips to where it'll end up anyway.

The pilot which stars Baby Daddy grad Derek Theler as Mister Immortal and This Is Us' Milana Vayntrub as fan-favorite Squirrel Girl is said to have tested through the roof and caught the attention of high-level Disney executives. Insiders note that Freeform which is expanding original programming to four nights a week in 2018 could not find a slot for the show next year as it had originally intended. Marvel then asked for New Warriors back as the comic book powerhouse wants it to premiere in the new year. Freeform obliged.

Wow, when has a network willingly given up an buzz-attracting show?  (before it airs, even)

Usually it's the other way around, where a network wants to either offload a turkey or shove the show to boost the viewership on some flunky sub network (much like what Fox was trying to with ARCHER and FXX)
