After a week without a release on Disney Plus from the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is coming to fill the WandaVision-sized hole in our lives.
The series sees Anthony Mackie return as Sam Wilson, with Sebastian Stan reprising his role as James ‘Bucky’ Barnes, who was first introduced alongside Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger.
With the new series set six months after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Sam and Bucky must team up to face a new threat in the form of anti-patriotism group the Flag-Smashers, with returning villain Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl) also lurking in the shadows.
So what time does The Falcon and The Winter Soldier launch on Disney Plus and how many episodes are there?
When does The Falcon and The Winter Soldier launch on Disney Plus?
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier launches on Disney Plus on Friday March 19.
It will run until the season finale on Friday April 23.
The release of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier comes after the highly-acclaimed WandaVision, which starred Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany as Vision.
The next Marvel launch on Disney Plus will be Loki, which is due to premiere on June 11 and will see Tom Hiddleston reprise the character from the Marvel films.
Another Marvel series, Hawkeye, is currently in production and slated for a release later this year with Jeremy Renner as the titular character and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld as his protégé Kate Bishop.
What time do episodes come out?
The first two episodes of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will be coming out on Disney Plus at 7am.
After the first two weeks, the remainder of the episodes will come out at 8am on Fridays, once the clocks have gone forward an hour on Sunday March 28.
How many episodes are there?
There are six episodes in total for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
While this is three less than there were for WandaVision, knowing Marvel, this shorter series is undoubtedly still going to pack a punch.
What’s more, following the season finale, Marvel’s Assembled anthology will offer viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the production.
