The disappearance of T’challa, the drama revolving around who will pick up the mantle can all be figured out using the show as the base that can build up the Black Panther 2 fully-fledged sequel that may not require to do a lot of explaining anymore.
On the other hand, the Wakanda-based series could also bring interesting characters like Shuri and M’Baku to the front that were part of Black Panther and focus on the way they would lead the kingdom of Wakanda. The show may also dive into deep in the past with all the kings that have picked up the mantle in the past, portraying the importance of character for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
