The series has Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprising their roles as the Falcon and the Winter Soldier, respectively, as they deal with issues in a world after Captain America's retirement in Avengers: Endgame.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was originally slated to be Marvel Studios' premiere series on Disney+. However, production delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic delayed its release, which pushed WandaVision ahead to become the first Marvel Studios series on Disney+.
During Disney's Investor Day in December 2020, it was announced that the series would debut on March 19, 2021.
In April 2021, executive producer Nate Moore stated that Marvel Studios considered The Falcon and the Winter Soldier to be a drama series, instead of a limited series like previously announced, and stated that there was potential for follow-up seasons.
The finale premiered on April 23, 2021 with a new closing title card: Captain America and the Winter Soldier. Following this, series writers Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson were set to write a fourth Captain America film.
