After going a year and a half without a new Marvel Cinematic Universe title, fans can expect a new Disney Plus series every few months in 2021.
“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprising their respective MCU roles, arrives March 19, two weeks after “WandaVision” concludes on Friday. It’s the most anticipated new series of the month.
Every month, Insider runs down the five most anticipated new shows using data from television-tracking app TV Time, derived from its US users who use the app to track and react to what they’re watching.
“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” isn’t the only Disney Plus series to make the list, but in a rare occurrence, Netflix was absent when it came to TV Time’s US users.
Below are the five most anticipated new shows of March:

But they have no choice but to trust each other as they track down the debris scattered across the Western Hemisphere. Each fragment has unpredictable, powerful and sometimes dangerous effects on the everyday people who find it. Every discovery is also a race against time, because shadowy outside forces seek these objects for nefarious purposes.”
