Three months after being picked up straight to series by Freeform, Marvel’s New Warriors has found its cast.

Milana Vayntrub has landed the breakout role of Squirrel Girl, while Baby Daddy grad Derek Theler will stay in business with Freeform after landing the role of Mister Immortal in Marvel’s first live-action scripted comedy.

The Squirrel Girl casting caps an extensive process that featured a personal campaign from Stranger Things breakout Shannon Purser – who sources say was also in the running.

“At Freeform, we are committed to finding distinct and entertaining characters that our audience can enjoy and relate to,” said Elizabeth Boykewich, senior vp casting and talent at Freeform.

Vayntrub will take on Doreen Green – aka Squirrel Girl.

Theler, who wrapped his six-season starring role on Freeform’s Baby Daddy in May, is Craig Hollis, aka Mister Immortal.
