Every Upcoming Marvel TV Show Coming to Disney Plus

What’s next in the MCU on the small screen?

The MCU’s upcoming slate continues to face a whole lot of shifting, but for now at least, there’s still a lot more Marvel TV on the way.

At the start of 2022, there were 12 new Marvel Studios series slated to premiere on the streaming platform in the coming months/years, along with two returning series. Then, the studio announced a few more at San Diego Comic-Con. Now, as 2023 speeds to a close, many of those have come and gone. But like we said, there are still more yet.

Of course, it’s hard for anyone to keep track of all these series in their head. So, we went ahead and compiled a list for you of every confirmed Marvel TV show currently in the works to premiere on Disney+.

Below, you’ll find all the information we have about the MCU’s upcoming slate of TV shows, from “Echo” to “Agatha: Darkhold Diaries” and more. We’ve got release dates, episode counts and all the names you’ll become familiar with.

What If…? (Season 2)

Marvel Studios

Release Date: Christmastime 2023

Cast: TBD

Number of Episodes: 9

Marvel’s “What If…?” first debuted on Disney+ in 2021, with each episode reimagining a major event within the MCU. Peggy Carter became Captain Britain, T’Challa became Star Lord, and Doctor Strange became evil (and apparently, that last one will play into the live action MCU).

Given that it’s a world of hypotheticals, there are a lot of ways that “What If…?” could go. Luckily, fans will get to find out in a second season of the animated series.

According to Marvel, “After enlisting the Guardians of the Multiverse to stop Infinity Ultron, The Watcher returns in Season 2 of ‘What If…?’ to meet new heroes and explore more strange new worlds in the MCU’s ever-expanding Multiverse.”

Audiences at Comic-Con got an early look at one episode, called “What If Captain Carter Fought the Hydra Stomper?” The episode follows Captain Carter (Hayley Atwell, once again), having to face down Steve, who has returned from the past in the Hydra Stomper, Iron Man-style suit. (It’s very much like the Hulkbuster armor that was introduced in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”)

There is a ton of mythology introduced – Black Widow (Lake Bell) and Carter are now BFFs, we get to see an alternate version of the Battle of New York, the Red Room is brought up and Peggy has to contend with having to battle her old love.


Disney+/Marvel Studios

Release Date: January 10, 2024

Cast: Alaqua Cox, Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio, Chaske Spencer, Tantoo Cardinal, Devery Jacobs, Cody Lightning, Graham Greene, Zahn McClarnon

Number of Episodes: 5

Fans first met Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), better known in the comics as Echo, over on “Hawkeye.” When last we saw her, she had killed her longtime friend Kazi (Fra Fee) — and possibly Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) himself. We were a little skeptical on whether the Kingpin of Crime is truly gone, considering we didn’t see a body, and indeed, our instincts were correct, since D’Onofrio is returning for this series.

Charlie Cox is also set to return as Daredevil in the series, sparking fan hopes to see the two square off once again. But, at least in the trailer, it appears he’ll be taking on Maya herself first.

According to Disney+’s official synopsis, “the origin story of ‘Echo’ revisits Maya Lopez, whose ruthless behavior in New York City catches up with her in her hometown. She must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots and embrace the meaning of family and community if she ever hopes to move forward.”

The series will simultaneously debut on Disney+ and Hulu, dropping all six episodes at once. It’s also the first TV-MA-rated Marvel Studios show.

You can watch the official trailer for Echo below.


Marvel Studios

Release Date: TBD

Cast: Domique Thorne, Anthony Ramos, Lyric Ross

Number of Episodes: 6

Ironheart, played by Dominique Thorne first hit screens in Marvel’s “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” but for now, fans will have to wait to see her again.

When she’s not suited up, Ironheart is known as Riri Williams. In the comics, Williams is a Black teen prodigy attending MIT who builds her own suit by reverse-engineering Tony Stark’s Iron Man suit design. Williams is also a genius like Tony, obviously In the comics, Pepper Potts mentors Riri in a similar fashion to how Tony took Peter Parker under his wing in the MCU, providing her with resources and a suit AI.

“In ‘Wakanda Forever’ we’re walking into Riri Williams in the midst of her experience, and it just so happens that that experience is taking her totally out of her world in which she was quite comfortable and into several worlds that are not her own,” Thorne told TheWrap in November 2022. “But that she does indeed have to reckon with, because it is her own ambition that has created the circumstances that that these folks find themselves in, herself included.”

She continued, “And I think that if folks can see that and be interested in her enough, or anticipate her enough, or be excited by her enough as she navigates someone else’s world, I think that they may be quite satisfied getting to peel back the curtain and take a deeper dive into Riri Williams as she exists in her own world.”

X-Men ’97

x-men the animated series

Release Date: Early 2024

Cast: Cal Dodd, Lenore Zann, George Buza, Adrian Hough, Christopher Britton, Catherine Disher, Chris Potter, Alison Sealy-Smith, Alyson Court, Jennifer Hale, Anniwaa Buachie, Ray Chase, Matthew Waterson, JP Karliak, Holly Chou, Jeff Bennett, AJ LoCascio

Number of Episodes: TBD

As TheWrap exclusively revealed in November, the 1990s “X-Men: The Animated Series” is getting a revival on Disney+ with a premiere in 2023. “X-Men ’97” will pick up where the classic show left off, with several cast members from “X-Men: The Animated Series” returning. Some will reprise their original roles and others will step into entirely new roles.

During San Diego Comic-Con, fans got a first look at some footage from the series, which reunited the original core team battling some Sentinels unleashed by Trask. A Sentinel is decapitated, Beast climbs inside of it and starts to puppeteer it from the inside. And best of all, the music sounds straight of of the 1990s (this new music is done by the Newton Brothers, frequent collaborators of “Midnight Mass” mastermind Mike Flanagan). Even without the finished animation, it definitely felt right.

Agatha: Darkhold Diaries

Agatha Coven of Chaos

Release Date: Fall 2024

Cast: Kathryn Hahn, Aubrey Plaza, Joe Locke

Number of Episodes: TBD

Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha Harkness made her debut in Marvel’s first Disney+ series “WandaVision” last January. Almost immediately, she became a fan favorite (thanks in part to her absolute bop of a theme song, “Agatha All Along”).

Like Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen), Agatha is a powerful magical being — she’s just not as powerful as Wanda. At the end of “WandaVision,” the Scarlet Witch was able to subdue Agatha, transforming her fully into Agnes the nosy neighbor, the role Agatha gave herself when Westview was first created.

The show was first announced as “Agatha: House of Harkness,” but during Marvel’s Hall H presentation at Comic-Con, it was teased under the new title of “Coven of Chaos.”

Whether or not the series will pick up after “WandaVision,” or maybe focus on Agatha’s past remains to be seen. But, according to the Disney+ press release, the new show “will reveal more about the character first introduced in Marvel Studios’ WandaVision.” Aboard as head writer is “WandaVision” head writer Jac Schaeffer.

Daredevil: Born Again

Marvel Studios

Release Date: TBD

Cast: Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio

Number of Episodes: 18

When Charlie Cox returned as Matt Murdoch in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” fans immediately began clamoring for more, hoping the MCU would find a way to pick up his story from the Netflix series. And now, it’s happening — Marvel confirmed a new “Daredevil” series with Charlie Cox, along with Vincent D’Onofrio returning as his legendary adversary, Kingpin.

Titled “Daredevil: Born Again,” the new series will be 18 episodes, but was one of the many titles shifted backed as a result of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike. At this point, an official release timeline remains to be seen.

In October, the series found a new showrunner in Dario Scardapane, who has worked within the Marvel universe as an EP and writer on Netflix’s “The Punisher.” It also tapped codirecting team Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who recently directed several episodes of “Loki” Season 2.

Together, the trio will spearhead the remainder of production. Amid the overhaul, head writers Chris Ord and Matt Corman exited the series, and directors for the remaining episodes of the series were released, prompting the show to search for new writers and directors. Despite their departure, Corman and Ord will be credited as executive producers.

Spider-Man: Freshman Year

Release Date: 2024

Cast: Charlie Cox

Number of Episodes: TBD

If you thought you were free of having to see Spider-Man’s origin story on screen once more, think again. Written by executive producer Jeff Trammel, “Spider-Man: Freshman Year” is swinging to Disney+, and is set to follow Peter Parker “on his way to becoming Spider-Man in the MCU, with a journey unlike we’ve ever seen and a style that celebrates the character’s early comic book roots.”

Yes, it’s an animated series. So we won’t see Holland’s face on screen, but we just might hear his voice. At this point, neither Holland, nor Friends of Spider-Man Zendaya or Jacob Batalon have officially been confirmed for the TV series, but it is officially an MCU show.

What we do know is that Charlie Cox will be reprising his role of Daredevil in the series. We also know that the show has been renewed for a second season titled “Spider-Man: Sophomore Year.”

“We went back to the roots, Ditko-inspired glasses and the color scheme and had him redrawn into an Alex Toth animated style from the ’60s,” said Ryan Meiderding, VP and Creative Director of Visual Development at Marvel Studios during Comic-Con.

Trammell continued with the teases, noting that Harry Obsorn plays a role in the show, marking Osborn’s first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He also teased the appearance of villains Chameleon, The Scorpion, Speed Demon, Tarantula, The Rhino, Butane the Pyromaniac and, of course, Doctor Otto Octavius.

Marvel Zombies

Marvel Studios

Release Date: TBA

Cast: TBD

Number of Episodes: TBD

Fans got a taste of zombies in the Marvel Universe over on “What If…?” but now the studio is going even deeper. In a new animated series called “Marvel Zombies,” the Marvel Universe is being reimagined “as a new generation of heroes battle against an ever-spreading zombie scourge.”

“Marvel Zombies” will be directed by executive producer Bryan Andrews and written by executive producer Zeb Wells.

Untitled Wakanda Series

Marvel Studios

Release Date: TBA

Cast: Danai Gurira

Number of Episodes: TBA

In May 2021, it was revealed that Marvel Studios was developing a “Black Panther” spinoff series revolving around Danai Gurira’s Okoye character. No other details are known at this time.

Vision Quest

Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany in “WandaVision” (Marvel Studios)

Release Date: TBA

Cast: Paul Bettany

Number of Episodes: TBA

In October, it was revealed that Marvel Studios is developing a new series focused around Paul Bettany’s Vision character called “Vision Quest.”

The show was set to open a writers room in early November, and will focus on Vision’s attempts to regain his memory and humanity. The character made his last appearance in “WandaVision,” which was set after his death in “Avengers: Infinity War” and showed him as a manifestation of Wanda Maximoff’s (Elizabeth Olsen) grief.
