Disney+ is on a roll this year, with the recent release of the hit Marvel series WandaVision, and soon, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Together with Flora & Ulysses and more original movies on the platform, it’s safe to say that Disney has no plans on slowing down just yet.
But what if we told you that given what we know of Disney’s release strategy for their new streaming service, the titles they have announced and the upcoming shows coming our way, that Disney is ready to release an episode of a TV series, every week, for the next year.
Not just any TV series mind you, but something linked to Marvel Studios and the Star Wars universe.
Why? Well, it’s no secret that since The Mandalorian made its debut, it has caught on viewers but it has also been recognized that some fans subscribe for Disney+ for as long as the show is around, before canceling their subscription and returning only when the next season drops.
With a new release weekly, no one will ever consider cancelling their Disney+ service.
We know that WandaVision releases every Friday and just prior to that, The Mandalorian Season 2 dropped weekly on Friday as well. Subscribers will be busy with the next two episodes and an episode of WandaVision’s Marvel Studios Assembled episode. If you didn’t know, Marvel Studios Assembled is a new documentary series that features behind-the-scenes of the shows or movies, which we expect will be cobbled together quite frequently and easily.
Next on the list, Disney+ has confirmed that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will release on March 19th. With 6 episodes and its own Marvel Studios Assembled episode, that will be seven weeks covered till May 7th.
There is also the premiere of Black Widow’s movie on April 29th in Singapore and May 7th in the U.S. and the Assembled episode.
That brings us to May, with the debut of the show episode Loki Disney+ TV series, followed by Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which releases on July 8th, and its Assembled episode following the next week.

After July 16th, we have no official release announcements yet, so this is where the prediction begins.
We know that What If…?, the series that explores different outcomes of the films of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), comes out in the Summer of 2021. It is possible that What If…? is lined up next, since summer starts in June. With 10 episodes (and the first three episodes of the series released in the first week) and its Assembled episode, this will cover content for the rest of July, August and half of September.
Things get iffy for the last quarter of the year, but if we know Disney, their armory is well stocked with content that everyone wants. Ms. Marvel, Hawkeye, and The Eternals film that releases on November 9th and many more. There’s also a ton of Star Wars goodies for the viewers. Along with Star Wars: The Bad Batch and Star Wars: Visions.
