I believe when Boseman passed Feige announced the part would not be recast in regards to the upcoming Black Panther 2. I like the idea of a really young T'Challa in the show. Maybe not the main character but maybe just seen in flashbacks? An actor that can be cast when they are super young, and in a few years can takeover Boseman's portrayal when enough time has past to do that.

...except that The Black Panther is a mantle, not a single individual. I, obviously, wish that Chadwick Boseman could keep starring as TChalla for as many excellent films as he wanted, but given the circumstances, I think making Shuri the next Black Panther could lead to some amazing movies, and interesting stories, while respecting the work and memory of Chadwick Boseman.

T'Challa is the Black Panther, just like Steve Rogers is Captain America. Others could and have stepped into the costumes, but there really is only one who is the icon. You wanna do a story 60-100 years in the future, sure, someone else is gonna have to wear that outfit. And they can even do a good or great job. It baffles me that some people don't even blink about Tom Holland playing Peter Parker, Spider-Man, even though we've had other actors in the role, and those same people seem to think no one else could possibly play Black Panther without somehow, "disrespecting" Boseman's memory.

A couple things pop into my mind about this news.

1) outside of outstanding performances by the cast, when the dust settled, Black Panther as a film wasnt that great. unfortunately we will never get Chadwick back but removing the Black Panther from the equation doesnt entice  me to want to return to this corner of the universe. Shuri carrying on I think has  some potential, possibilities with the Dora Milaje and Okoye could be cool. The rest would be a stretch to hold interest for me.

2) as others have pointed out the idea that no other actor can be TChalla is just dumb. Chadwicks performance in every appearance was near perfect. But never seeing TChalla in the MCU again is not fair to the character. Since Chadwicks passing I have mentally recast numerous times. No actor will bring what Chadwick did for the role but I think many could add to the legacy. Imagine what John David Washington could do as BP. I dont want to see Disney do what WB has done and recast every year like they do with Batman but this isnt the first time a new actor has taken over after an ordinal actor has died in a role. 

Will give any MCU show a chance so not ruling it out..

This should be good. The movie was so over the top of that this should be go hand to hand with that...

They need to stop. This notion of doing the Black Panther story without the Panther is just as foolish as the idea that no other actor could possibly portray T'Challa, so they won't recast the role. Whether its Gotham or Krypton or Smallville or SHIELD...these types of shows always come off as cheap place holders, baiting the audience for the Main Event ( which can't ever really happen). And don't even get me started with Batwoman.

Those examples did manage to stay on the air because they at least had enough exposure time for viewers to get familiar with. Even if the average person never read the comics, they knew what these things referred to because of radio, newspaper strips, merchandising, etc. Black Panther is a revered character but sadly only got a brief (although memorable) amount of time on screen. We need to see more of him, before we go delving into a series about his nation. Especially with covid still jacking up movie and tv production. I say take the time, hone an actor for the role, then in about a year or two give us a recast Panther.

Yeah I as well, lets get at least Falcon & Winter Soldier out, Loki, and at least 2 more shows out, before we start turning the wheels again getting ready to pump out more, also I don't want to be that guy who says.. a show about Wakanda seems low brow to me, it's just going to have that NBC show feel.. like a Gotham, with a bunch of low tier characters doing minor activities strickly in their country.. meh seems too WB DC for me at this point.

Yeah I agree, could be cool, but overall using low tier characters doesn't have much appeal to me.  But then, I'm not a huge Black Panther fan, so maybe there's a lot of material to pull from that I'm unaware of.

I hadn't considered Storm but that'd be interesting. Ironically Lupita Nyong'o was my fancast for her before she was cast as Nakia.

I was thinking about this at work and thinking this could actually be a great thing. Think about all the character they could introduce. Manifold, Vibrax, White wolf (Hunter not Bucky) and even Storm could be brought into the MCU via this series.  

I was thinking along similar lines. I also thought this might be a great way to ease a new actor into the T'Challa character. Sort of like how Supergirl took their sweet time rolling out Tyler Hoechlin's Superman.

The future is indeed never certain, but saying that the MCU series cited are single season shows isn't an assumption, they're designed that way. The examples you gave and what Marvel is doing are different in nearly every way.

Actually, no they're not. Schedules were made, contracts signed, money paid.

. . . and things changed.

My point is, for all we know, Marvel/Disney could extend any of their shows . . . or they could cancel WandaVision tonight. If 2020 showed us anything, it's that there's NO SUCH THING as an iron-clad arrangement. The future of the Disney+ shows probably will go on exactly as planned. But if you're willing to make bank on it, you haven't been paying attention for the last 11 or so months.
