The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has made for epic viewing on Disney Plus but will there be an episode 7 and how many episodes are there in total?
Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been a thrilling romp since it arrived on Disney+ on March 19th.
Over the course of its run, the series has asked many questions of Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes as they’ve been forced to come to terms with the absence of Steve Rogers as Captain America.
One of the most pivotal questions to emerge after episode 6 is whether or not The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will return to Disney+ for episode 7.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier exploded onto Disney+ on March 19th, 2021.
Arriving a matter of weeks after the weird and wonderful WandaVision, the second of Marvel’s MCU TV shows continues the stories of Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes following the climactic events of Avengers: Endgame.
After the passing of the torch (or shield) by Steve Rogers, John Walker is selected as the new Captain America and tensions rise when Sam and Bucky recruit the help of Helmut Zemo to go in search of a terrorist group named the Flag Smashers.
Is there an episode 7?
- No, there will not be an episode 7 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
That’s because the second of Marvel’s Disney+ TV series was only made up of six episodes in total.
Unlike WandaVision, where there were rumours of a secret episode, Marvel and Disney were quite clear in confirming that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier would only be made up of six episodes.
Will there be a season 2?
- No, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will not return for season 2.
Just like WandaVision before it, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is a limited miniseries meaning its story is told over only one season.
On the plus side, however, fans won’t have to wait long for more Marvel content as April 30th will see the next instalment of Marvel’s Assembled, this time examining the making of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
After that, it’s only a few short weeks until Marvel’s next Disney+ series arrives, Loki, which begins airing from June 11th.
Instead of a second season, Sam Wilson’s story is expected to continue in a new Captain America movie which is to be written by Falcon and Winter Soldier’s Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is available to stream now on Disney+ with the sixth and final episode airing on April 23rd.
