Marvel delays premieres for Agatha and EchoDisney+

Marvel Studios and Disney have delayed multiple upcoming MCU shows.

The Hollywood Reporter states that What If...? season 2 is now coming out around Christmas Day, Hawkeye spin-off Echo has moved from November into January 2024, and the Agatha Harkness series has been pushed back to tie in with Halloween 2024.

Previously subtitled House of Harkness and then Coven of Chaos, the series will now go by Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.

These shows were all filmed, but have been impacted by the strikes going on in Hollywood, with the actors unable to promote them. Disney has been cancelling streaming shows like Doogie Kameãloha, MD, The Great and How I Met Your Father, so this serves to spread out the superhero shows and fill in gaps in the schedule.

Ironheart, another series that has finished principal photography but has not been completed, no longer has a release. Neither do Daredevil: Born Again or Wonder Man, which had to pause production due to the strikes.

Produced by Marvel Studios but not part of the MCU (at least the main universe), X-Men: The Animated Series continuation X-Men '97 has also been delayed until early 2024. A second season is planned and is apparently still being worked on.

The second season of Loki is still expected to make its October 6 premiere date. Season 1 has been noted as Disney+'s most-watched Marvel series, while the trailer for the follow-up run set the record for the biggest Disney+ trailer debut.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and TV shows can be streamed on Disney+, as can all five seasons of X-Men: The Animated Series.
