The new season of The Spectacular Spider-Man debuts tonight at 7:30 PM ET/PT on Disney XD!

In the season premiere, “Blueprints,” Peter wants to talk to Gwen about their first kiss, but before he gets the chance, Spider-Man has a run-in with the sorcerer Mysterio. Following the additional brand-new episode is a side story, “Destructive Testing,” Peter wrestles with his feelings for both Gwen and Liz, but in the meantime, Kraven the Hunter has arrived to make Spider-Man his prey.

The Spectacular Spider-Man journeys back to the web-slinger’s junior year in high school, when a not-so-typical 16-year-old named Peter Parker struggles to conceal his secret identity, endure the pressures of teenage life and combat never before seen Super Villains. In Season Two, things aren’t getting any easier for Peter Parker. While he struggles to sort out his feelings for Gwen Stacy, Liz Allan, Jane Watson and Black Cat, the challenges for Spider-Man are piling up. In addition to the arrival of the Master Planner, whose rise will lead to a gang war with Tombstone and Silvermane, throw in the return of a host of familiar villains including Rhino, Electro, Vulture, Sandman, Doctor Octopus, plus new opponents like Mysterio, Kraven, Tinkerer, and Molten Man, and Spidey’s plate is pretty darn full. And in case that’s not enough, wait until Venom resurfaces to reveal Pete/Spidey’s secret identity to the rest of the world! All this and the truth about the Green Goblin!

This is one of my favorite cartoons out there right now. If this season is anything like the last one this is going to be a fun few months if you’re a web-head like my self.
