With the ongoing actor’s and writer’s strikes, plus Disney looking to cut back on how many Marvel shows it releases on Disney+, in order to cut costs and reduce franchise fatigue, it has been revealed by the Hollywood Reporter that Disney is shaking up its release schedule for it’s upcoming “Echo” series.
Originally, Disney announced that the entire “Echo” season would arrive on Disney+ on November 29th 2023, but apparently, the show is now being pushed back to January 2024, but it will continue to be released all at once.
This all-new series tells the origin story of Echo, where we revisit Maya Lopez, whose ruthless behaviour in New York City (during the “Hawkeye” series) catches up with her in her hometown. She must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots and embrace the meaning of family and community if she ever hopes to move forward.
“Echo” stars Alaqua Cox, Chaske Spencer, Tantoo Cardinal, Devery Jacobs, Cody Lightning, Graham Greene and Zahn McClarnon. The show has been executive produced by Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Stephen Broussard, Richie Palmer, Marion Dayre, Jason Gavin, Amy Rardin, Sydney Freeland, Christina King and Jennifer Booth.
With the second season of “Loki” due to be released on Disney+ in October, and with “The Marvels” coming out in cinemas in November, shifting the release of “Echo” back a couple of months does make sense, especially if Disney are trying to reduce superhero fatigue.
