After the success of LokiDisney Plus will release all of its original programming on Wednesdays instead of Fridays.
Fridays have always been considered by fans around the world as Wonderful other Star Wars days, as all of the original Disney Plus programming was released on the last day of the week. Disney decided to shake it up a bit by releasing Tom Hiddleston’s Loki on a Wednesday, which confused many and delighted others. With the time change, Loki quickly emerged as the most popular series on the platform with just one episode, beating out heavyweights like WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
This schedule change will apply to all Disney Plus originals, including all animated, scripted and unscripted series. The change does not currently apply to the upcoming Disney Plus cinematic roster. The reason for the change is likely because Disney wants its viewers to associate psychologically on Wednesday when TV drops and on Fridays when movie drops. With everything being released on Friday, viewers tend to forget what’s new and stick with what they would have already been watching. Also, people tend to stay home more often during the week, which means they will have more than enough time to watch shows like Loki before they are spoiled by them.
This upcoming change in programming has changed the release dates of numerous Disney Plus originals. You can see the full list below.
