Here's Where You Can Watch X-Men: The Animated Series

If you were a kid in the '90s (or a young-at-heart adult), you probably remember "X-Men: The Animated Series." It's based on the Marvel comic books of the same name and largely responsible for the series of "X-Men" cinematic blockbusters starring the same heroes and set in the same Marvel Comics universe. The cartoon show aired on the Fox Kids Network from 1992 to 1997 in the US and Canada. After five seasons, the show ran its course and was discontinued.

Fans of the animated series were delighted to learn earlier today during the big Disney+ Day event that their beloved childhood cartoon is making a comeback. That's the good news. The bad news, unfortunately, is that it won't be debuting until sometime in 2023. Of course, this debut date means that you will have plenty of time to catch up and wallow in the nostalgia of the original series. And here are all the ways you can watch "X-Men: The Animated Series" while you wait for Disney+ to continue the story.

X-Men is 'free' with a Disney+ subscription; everyone else will have to pay

It should come as no surprise that Disney, the company responsible for bringing this series back from the dead, has now made all five seasons of the old episodes available for streaming on the Disney+ platform. The show is "free" with a paid subscription, meaning that you don't have to pay per episode or spend extra money to digitally rent or own the series. It's a great way to relive your childhood and also gives you access to a ton of other content produced by Disney+. Currently, the streamer charges $7.99 monthly for membership, though they have an ongoing limited-time offer where new subscribers pay only $1.99 for the first month.

Other places you can watch the old cartoon online include YouTube, Apple TV, Vudu (if you sign up for an account), Amazon Prime Video, and Google Play Movies & TV. But you will have to pay upfront before you can binge it. If you're not ready to commit to the full series — or even a full season — you can pay $1.99 per episode, and that price is uniform through every other online streaming service other than Disney+. If you'd rather take advantage of buy-in-bulk discounts, you can save a good amount of money by purchasing each individual season for $14.99 on most platforms — Amazon Prime charges slightly less for the seasons with fewer episodes. (Take note, however, that these rates are current as of this writing but subject to change.)
