Marvel Rethinks TV Calendar and Releases New Premiere Dates for ‘Agatha,’ ‘Echo’ and ‘X-Men ’97’ amid Strikes

Disney’s Marvel Studios has announced new release dates for its upcoming television shows.

The move to move the date comes after both the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and SAG-AFTRA went on strike on May 2 and July 14, respectively.

According to The Hollywood Reporterthe studio decided to expand its content over a longer period of time due to the “general withdrawal” of streamers and a new initiative to “make every title an event for fans and audiences”.

Although Disney announced its TV-focused plans for Phase 5 and Phase 6 at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the streamer decided to significantly reduce the amount of television series that will debut this year.

The second season of What if…? will be the second show to debut in 2023 and will be shown around Christmas. The show was originally expected to air in early 2023 before it was pushed back.

The Emmy-winning animated series won’t be holiday-themed, but instead will remain an anthology series that gives Marvel diehards an alternate look at what might have happened if their favorite heroes or villains had never won.
