The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will drop its series finale next week and it’s safe to say that hype levels are high after an exciting fifth episode that left us with an agonising cliffhanger.
The penultimate chapter saw Sam and Bucky set aside their differences and reach a mutual understanding for the first time, but dangerous enemies remain at large and that means their toughest fight is still to come.
From Karli Morgenthau and the Flag Smashers to an unstable John Walker, the unlikely duo will have their work cut out for them next week in an episode that looks as if it will finally reveal the real next Captain America.
While some fans have spoken out against the weekly release pattern that Disney Plus utilises, there can be no denying it gets results as The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been a hot topic every Friday since it debuted.
You’ll need a Disney Plus subscription to join the conversation; sign up for £7.99 per month or £79.90 for a full year. Once you’re a member, you’ll be able to watch the new shows as well as the other Marvel movies in order.
For now, read on for everything you need to know about The Falcon and the Winter Soldier release schedule.
What time does The Falcon and the Winter Soldier come out?
The third episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier arrived on Disney Plus on Friday 2nd April at 8AM (GMT), an hour later than the first two episodes owing to the change to British Summer Time on the 28th March.
Oddly though, on Friday 9th April the episode was released a few minutes early for some reason, allowing fans the chance to get a head start on the story. Proof that it never hurts to be punctual.
The episodes drop more or less simultaneously worldwide, with new episodes expected to be made available in the USA at 12:00AM PT and 3:00AM ET, while fans in Australia should get to watch them at 6:00PM on Fridays.
How many episodes are in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier?
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier consists of six episodes, making it shorter than WandaVision by three chapters, but each one is expected to be closer to an hour-long so the total runtime for the two shows will be roughly the same.
Marvel boss Kevin Feige explained why he landed on this duration while speaking at the Television Critics Association, saying, “Six hours is what we landed on as the best way to tell our story.
“Six hours, whether it’s six episodes or nine shorter episodes like WandaVision. The shows aren’t inexpensive, so the per-episode cost is very high and to get that bar I was talking about.”
So far, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episodes have tended to be around 50-53 minutes long including credits.
