10. Ms. Marvel - TBA
The show will be following Pakastani-American teen, Kamala Khan, and her life in Jersey as she learns to deal with her superpowers. Khan is a fan of comics, and a mega-fan of her hero Carol Danvers, which will make her one of the most relatable heroines on TV at the moment. It will be interesting to see how her stretchy elastic-like powers translate to a live-action screen!
9. Marvel's Moon Knight - TBA
Not everyone will be familiar with Moon Knight at first, but they’ll almost certainly come to love the lesser-known character now that he has his own series. Moon Knight, aka Marc Spector, often considered to be a bit of an anti-hero highly skilled in hand-to-hand combat and with multiple alter-egos.
8. Marvel's She-Hulk - TBA
She-Hulk is an iconic Marvel character, so it’s exciting to see her brought into the MCU. This green-hued heroine is a cousin of Bruce Banner’s. After an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin, she begins to develop powers of her own. And with great power…
7. High School Musical: The Musical: The Series - 11.12.19

6. Marvel's What If ...? - Summer 2021
This animated series will be based on the comics of the same name. The characters will be voiced by the MCU’s live-action cast, which will be a change from other animated Marvel shows. The narrator, voiced by Jeffery Wright, will be a Watcher surveying the multiverse. The show will consist of “what if” alternate reality scenarios within the existing MCU including new stories from Black Panther, Thor, Agent Carter and Ant-Man.
5. Marvel's Hawkeye - Fall 2021
Jeremy Renner will be reprising his role as Clint Barton aka Hawkeye in this new series about the iconic archer. The show will follow Clint as he trains Kate Bishop, who later becomes Hawkeye in the comics. It’s probably safe to assume that Kate Bishop will be taking up the mantle of Hawkeye, as Clint is now Ronin following the events of Avengers: Endgame.
4. Marvel's Loki - Spring 2021
The hype is through the roof for this show with Tom Hiddleston returning as our beloved Loki, god of mischief.

The story follows Loki after he stole the Tesseract and vanished during the events of Endgame.
3. Marvel's WandaVision - Spring 2021
This quirky new show will star Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany as Vision. It will also introduce Tenoyah Parris as Monica Rambeau, a character who has already been introduced to the MCU as a child in Captain Marvel. The events of the show, written by Jac Schaeffer, will likely tie in to the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel.
2. Marvel's Falcon & Winter Soldier - Fall 2020
The plot follows Bucky Barnes (Sebatian Stan) and Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) as they team up to fight villains including Helmut Zenmo (Daniel Bruhl).
