Jaime is also getting a new DC series launching in September that follows the events of Blue Beetle: Graduation Day. Simply titled Blue Beetle, the new series, which comes from the Graduation Day creative team, launches on September 5, 2023.

“Jaime Reyes’s graduation is over, but his new life in Palmera City and as the Blue Beetle has only just begun,” the solicitation for Blue Beetle #1 reads. “With two new Beetles to train in Dynastes and Nitida, Jaime has his hands full navigating being a leader. Thankfully, he has Paco and Brenda by his side as they settle in at Palmera State University. But what lurks in the shadows of Blue Beetle’s new home and what does it mean for the Blue Beetle legacy?”

Along with Maridueña and Sarandon, Blue Beetle stars Adriana Barraza, Damián Alcázar, Raoul Max Trujillo, George Lopez, Elpidia Carrillo, Melissa Escobedo, Bruna Marquezine, and Harvey Guillén. The screenplay is written by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer.
