New Marvel series on Disney Plus in 2023

2023 has been a rough year for all movie and television production studios due to the SAG and WGA strikes.

Nonetheless, we were still lucky to get a few new Marvel series on Disney Plus in 2023.

If you haven’t watched them yet, check out these shows:

  1. Secret Invasion
  2. Loki, Season 2
  3. Marvel Studios Legends (3 new episodes – Carol Danvers, Kamala Khan, and Monica Rambeau)

Secret Invasion

Release date: June 21, 2023

Our favorite former S.H.I.E.L.D. director, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) returns to Earth after the events in Avengers: Endgame, no doubt ready for rest and reflection.

However, he discovers a plot by Skrulls to take over Earth, so he must set out to stop them.

Maria Hill (Colbie Smulders), Rhodey (Don Cheadle), and Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) are all set to return to help out.

Plus, we’ll see the debut of Emilia Clarke in the MCU as G’iah, Talos’ daughter, but supposedly one of the Skrull villains!

Tune in this summer to see how it all goes down. Until then, check out my post about all the best Nick Fury quotes.

Now that this show has already premiered and all episodes have hit the service – what do you think? I heard a lot of complaints, but personally I really enjoyed it!

I was especially fond of G’iah, played by Emilia Clarke, who also played Daenerys in Game of Thrones, but it was also great to see Nick Fury again.

Loki, Season 2

Release date: October 5, 2023

Can you believe it? Loki, the God of Mischief is coming back for more trouble on Disney+ in October 2023.

I need to know what happens after that shocking cliffhanger in season 1, so I’m excited that there’s finally a release date to count down to. Plus that gives us plenty of time to rewatch season 1.

Will Loki put his mischievous ways aside and be seen as a hero instead of a villain? Or will he keep causing chaos and messing with the timeline? 

Knowing Loki, it’s probably the latter. But hey, that’s what makes him so entertaining to watch.

But more importantly, will Mobius ever get his jet ski?

Be sure to tune into this one if you’re also into the Marvel movies, as this series is all about timelines and multiverses!

Each episode will appear on Thursdays at 9 PM ET (6 PM PT).

Here’s the Loki Season 2 release schedule for each episode:

  1. Ouroboros – October 5, 2023
  2. Breaking Brad – October 12, 2023
  3. 1893 – October 19, 2023
  4. Heart of the TVA – October 26, 2023
  5. Science/Fiction – November 2, 2023
  6. Episode 6 – November 9, 2023

Upcoming Marvel series on Disney Plus in 2023 & 2024

Here’s a list of upcoming Marvel series for the remainder of 2023:

  1. What if…?, new episodes – December 2023

Here’s a list of Marvel shows expected in 2024.

  1. Echo – January 10, 2024
  2. Agatha: Darkhold Diaries – early Fall 2024 (source)
  3. Daredevil: Born Again
  4. Ironheart
  5. Marvel Zombies
  6. Spider-Man: Freshman Year
  7. X-Men ’97 – Early 2024 (source)

Release date: January 10, 2024

We first met Maya Lopez, aka Echo, in the series Hawkeye and now she’s getting her own spin-off!

Played by Alaqua Cox, Echo is a deaf, Indigenous American woman who is the former head of the tracksuit mafia under Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio).

The series is said to pick up after Hawkeye, with Echo returning to her hometown in Oklahoma where she must deal with her rough past.

My guess is that we’ll get lots of flashbacks to build up her story and character, too.

Unlike other Marvel series on Disney+, all episodes of Echo will be released on its premiere date (source).

Personally this is my preference, but some folks still prefer a traditional approach with 1 episode per week.

But given that it’s releasing around the holiday season, I think most folks won’t have time to keep up and it could get lost.

Having it release all at once will let fans watch when it’s convenient for them amongst all the holiday parties, shopping, etc.

X-Men ’97

Release date: Early 2024

This animated series puts some of our favorite Marvel mutants into a time when the public is more open and accepting of their existence.

And while that sounds all mushy and heartwarming, there will be at least one villain – Mister Sinister (source).

Agatha: Darkhold Diaries

Release date: Fall 2024 (source)

Following up on the smash-hit series, WandaVision, Agatha: Darkhold Diaries brings back a few of our favorite Westview residents, Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) chief among them.

Previously called Agatha: Coven of Chaos, the show will also introduce new unnamed characters played by Aubrey Plaza, Maria Dizzia, and Patti Lupone. What a lineup!

The plot of the series is being kept tightly hidden, but given that the main character is a witch, we can expect something magical.

Spider-Man: Freshman Year

Release date: 2024 TBD

Spiderman: Freshman Year is another animated series coming down the Marvel pipeline.

The story follows Peter Parker, who takes on more than he bargained for while balancing his studies as a freshman student with his newfound superhero abilities as Spiderman!

I wish this had been green lit as a live-action story, but it’ll do.

Daredevil: Born Again

Release date: TBD

Disney+ brought Daredevil into the current MCU in 2021’s Spiderman: No Way Home and 2022’s She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which was the perfect soft-launch for announcing this series.

While Marvel has kept the concept of Daredevil: Born Again under wraps, Charlie Cox will be returning as the titular character.

Vincent D’Onofrio reprised his role as Kingpin in Hawkeye and is also confirmed to appear in this series.

Prior to the WGA strike, Spring 2024 was being floated as the likely premiere timeline. However, I expect it will be pushed into late 2024 or even into 2025.

The trade magazine, Hollywood Reporter confirmed that production is on hold and likely to change dates, as well.

Hopefully we’ll hear more on this now that there is a tentative agreement and writers will be returning to studio work shortly.

Release date: TBD

Brilliant engineer and MIT student Riri Williams, aka Ironheart, returns in her own series after we first met her in Wakanda Forever.

Played by Dominique Thorne, she will be joined by Anthony Ramos, who will play Parker Robbins, aka The Hood.

The plot of the show isn’t known all too much, other than that we will definitely see more inventions from Riri, including a new Iron Man suit!

I’m excited to see Ironheart return and show off her genius while no doubt saving the day a time or two.

Wonder Man

Premiere Date: TBD

This fun series follows an actor, Simon Williams (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) who gets super powers that turn him into a superhero named Wonder Man.

This series was mid-production when the WGA and SAG strikes started, so it’s unclear when the show is expected to premiere.

According to IMDB, the character Trevor Slattery (Ben Kingsley) from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the actor from Liverpool who was held captive by Wenwu, is slated to make an appearance. How fun!

Marvel Zombies

Release date: TBD

In this upcoming animated series, we get an alternate universe story about our favorite superheroes stuck in a zombie apocalypse – with some likely turning into one!

It’s an interesting concept that will pull from the Marvel Zombies comic series and allegedly the What if…? zombies episode, as well.

To be honest, I don’t usually watch the animated Marvel shows, but I might tune in for this one!

Rumored Marvel series

In addition to the confirmed series in development, there are a few strong rumors floating around.

It’s important to note that none of these have been confirmed by Marvel, but most have had some very convincing news reports about the series being, at minimum, in development.

Of course, that doesn’t mean it will make it out of that stage!

Armor Wars

Next is Armor Wars, which will explore what happened if Tony Stark’s tech got into the wrong hands.

This rumor is partially true!

Armor Wars was originally set to be a Disney+ original show, but has since been changed to a movie that will release in theaters (source).


Then there’s the long-rumored TV series about Steve Rogers’ nomad years, based off the Marvel comic, Nomad.

CBR and other trade publications reported on this back in 2020 when it was noticed that Marvel had trademarked related phrases, which often happens before a project releases to get merch in order.

Chris Evans is busy as ever these days, but he has said in past interviews that he would reprise the role of Steve Rogers if the story was good enough. This concept fits that criteria, don’t you think?

Anyway, Disney and Marvel Studios have been radio silent on this, so this one is starting to look like a project that might not take off. I hope they prove me wrong though!

The Punisher

First up is a reboot of The Punisher.

Whether this would pick up where it left off after being cancelled by Netflix or a new adventure is to be determined.

The rumor was apparently started by one of its stars, Rosario Dawson, who later clarified that it hadn’t been confirmed.

The casting of Jon Bernthal, who starred in the original show, for Daredevil: Born Again, seems to push this rumor further toward truth, in my opinion, though!

Unnamed Dora Milaje series

Next up is a spin-off series based on the Dora Milaje from Wakanda. Of all the shows on this rumored list, this one seems most likely to move into confirmed territory.

According to Vanity Fair, Proximity Media (Black Panther & Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler’s production company) signed a 5-year deal with Disney to develop additional content for the streaming service.

The deal includes an origin story series for Okoye (Danai Gurira), the general of the Dora Milaje.

It will also reportedly include a second Wakanda-based series, but there haven’t been any solid reports about the concept or cast.

Perhaps we’ll get confirmation on a timeline at either Comic Con in San Diego or the D23 Expo in 2024.

Wong series

Last up is a series rumor that I’m certain is fan-made, as I haven’t found any news reports to back it up.

However, I secretly hope it happens: a spin-off featuring Wong, aka Wongers.

Even if this was a series of short episodes, like I am Groot, with Wong finding himself in absurd scenarios, I’d be happy!

Don’t you think a show like this would be a fun, light-hearted comic relief in the oft-heavy multiverse saga?

If this ever happened, I really hope that Madisynn from She-Hulk is involved, too!

The Park Pixie’s top picks

Pretty much all of these series sound fabulous and who knows what else Marvel Studios and Disney will dream up next.

Of all the upcoming Marvel series on this list, here are my top picks, good and bad:

  1. Looking forward to most: Loki, Season 2
  2. Crossing my fingers for this: a Wong series or mini-series
  3. Could live without this one: Echo (but I’ll still watch in hopes it proves me wrong)

Which upcoming Marvel series are you most excited about?

With so many exciting new Marvel shows on the horizon, there’s plenty to tide us over in between film releases.

I love that we’ll never have to wait too long without something to watch and chat about.
