Marvel Shuffles TV Calendar with New Dates

Marvel is shuffling its television calendar with new dates for several of its shows streaming on Disney+. The superhero megacompany’s scheduling changes come in response to the current strikes in Hollywood.

The Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) are striking together. The writers’ strike started on May 2nd and actors joined the strike on July 14th. Their forces combined impact the development, production, and even promotion of numerous television shows and films. Until their demands are met, expect more delays.

Marvel Shows Currently Affected

The list of Marvel shows currently affected is below.

Season two of What If…? is now releasing this December. Originally, the new season of the first-ever animated show based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe was releasing earlier this past year.

Echo, which is a spinoff of 2021’s Hawkeye show, intended to release on November 29th this year. Now, the show is premiering in January of 2024. The show stars Alaqua Cox as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first Native American and deaf superhero. All episodes are releasing on the same day. This is contrary to other Marvel shows releasing episodically, so this is Marvel’s first simultaneous release on the Disney+ platform.

X-Men ’97 moved its release from fall of this year to an early 2024 release. The show is an update on the hit cartoon X-Men Evolution, which ran from 2000 to 2003.

The show formerly titled Agatha: Coven of Chaos, newly titled Agatha: Darkhold Diaries, is a WandaVision spin-off focused on the character Agatha Harkness, starring Kathryn Hahn. Intended for an early 2023 release, the series is now set to release in fall 2024.

One show still on track in its release is season 2 of Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston. It is releasing as originally scheduled on October 6th of this year.
