In order to comply with COVID-19 safety guidelines in the spring, Disney confirmed that it would remain closed but finally opened back up a few months ago. This week, fans were treated to a first look trailer of the six-episode show.

According to The Verge, “The show takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Steve Rogers has retired from his role as Captain America, choosing to live a simple life in an alternate reality with his longtime love, Peggy Carter. Sam Wilson (Falcon) has picked up the shield instead. The brief glimpses fans got from the Super Bowl spot also teased Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier) reuniting with Zemo (Daniel Brühl), who first appeared in Captain America: Civil War back in 2016.”

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will debut on Disney+ with a six-episode run starting on March 19, 2021. That follows the debut of WandaVision, which stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, along with Teyonah Parris, that premieres on Jan. 15

As theGrio previously reported, Thursday, Disney finally revealed some details about the Black Panther sequel during the company’s Investor Day.
