Marvel's The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is five action-packed episodes in on Disney Plus, and it's about to cross the finish line. The buddy-adventure series took over WandaVision's Friday night spot, pairing Marvel heroes Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) on a globe-trotting mission.

Unlike WandaVision, the Falcon and the Winter Soldier didn't premiere with two episodes on the same day. It's been releasing an episode a week, with the sixth and final arriving Friday. While this is fewer episodes than the Wanda and Vision sitcom, the expected episode runtime gives you a little extra, varying from 40 to 50 minutes.

Here's the full The Falcon and the Winter Soldier release schedule, with the release times:

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier marks the second series in the ever-evolving Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe . Picking up after the events of Avengers: Endgame, the show centers on Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon, taking over the Captain America shield, and Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier, grappling with 21st century life without his star-spangled pal Steve Rogers. On top of that, the pair team up on a globe-trotting mission to take down an anarchist group called the Flag-Smashers.

Plus, Don Cheadle appears as War Machine.

Will there be a second season? Loki, the upcoming series starring, yep, Loki, already has a second season in development. No word on whether The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is going the same way yet.
