When will She-Hulk be released on Disney Plus?
The series is set to finally hit Disney Plus on August 18. The series was originally planned to come to the streaming service a day earlier, but was pushed back by 24 hours – this means that each new episode will premiere on Thursdays rather than Wednesdays.
The nine-episode season will be released in weekly instalments, as Disney attempts to move its platform away from the binge-watching model and back towards the traditional release model – most likely so that each of its new TV shows can dominate TV coverage for an extended period.
The series has been created by Jessica Gao, who will also write three episodes. Kat Coiro, who directed Jennifer Lopez romcom Marry Me earlier this year, is attached to oversee six episodes in total.
Watch She-Hulk on Disney Plus from August 18.
