Echo Season 1: Release Date
Based on the somewhat positive response to ‘Hawkeye‘ (2021), Marvel green-lit the spin-off series, focusing on Maya Lopez/Echo. Echo Season 1 is all set to release on November 29, 2023, and will be exclusively available on Disney+.
It was originally scheduled for a release in mid-2023. Season 1 will be the first Marvel series that will release all of its episodes at once, compared to the weekly releases.
What to expect in Echo Season 1?
Echo Season 1 follows the aftermath of the events in Hawkeye. Season 1 will also lead into the events of the upcoming Disney+ series, ‘Daredevil: Born Again’. No official plot for Echo Season 1 is out yet and there have been reports that the series was re-shot as Marvel Boss, Kevin Feige found it ‘unreleasable’.
