The new Marvel series “Loki” won’t be a traditional Disney+ show, as it will be released on Wednesdays not Fridays.
When will ‘Loki’ be released?
Since the beginning of Disney+, episodes from new shows have been released on Fridays. Sure, there are exceptions, like when a series debuts on a specific day — like when “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” debuted on Tuesday, May 4 — but otherwise, Fridays are the day.
The first episode will be released Wednesday, June 9.
We originally thought “Loki” was going to be released on June 11, which is a Friday. Previous Marvel shows like “WandaVision” and “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” debuted on Fridays, according to CNET.
Disney+ confirmed in a release to the Deseret News that Wednesdays will be the new “weekly release day” for the “Loki” series.
It’s unclear if this means the series will be the only one to run on Wednesdays or if this is a major change for Disney+ releases. We know that “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” will continue to debut on Fridays, so maybe this is a way for Disney+ to avoid doubling up.
Even more, Disney is preparing to release full feature films again. For example, “Black Widow” will soon release on a Friday. So instead of letting the shows double up, now there could be two different release dates for projects.
