“Ms. Marvel” — the forthcoming Marvel Studios series about a teenage superhero — has been rated TV-PG.

Driving the news: The official Disney+ page for the new series shows that “Ms. Marvel” will have a TV-PG rating.

  • TV-PG productions contain “material that parents may find unsuitable for younger children,” according to the TV Parental Guidelines Monitoring Board.
  • TV-PG shows might have “some suggestive dialogue, infrequent coarse language, some sexual situations or moderate violence,” per the board.

Why it matters: Marvel Studios projects have often hovered in the TV-14 space for series and PG-13 for movies.

  • The first two episodes of “WandaVision” were rated TV-PG before the show transitioned into a TV-14 project, per ComicBook.com.
  • The first three episodes followed a traditional sitcom format before opening up into a wider investigation and story.

The bigger picture: “Ms. Marvel” receives the TV-PG rating just weeks after one of Marvel Studios’ darkest shows yet, “Moon Knight,” hit the streaming service.

“Ms. Marvel” premieres on Disney+ on June 8, 2022.
