Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series “Ms. Marvel” will be making its television debut later this summer on ABC. The network has announced it will show the first season of the original series across two Saturdays in August.
“Ms. Marvel” follows Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. She is a gamer, loves fan fiction, and adores superheroes, especially Captain Marvel. Like many teens, Kamala feels like she doesn’t fit in at school or at home. But unlike most teens, she gets superpowers like the heroes she’s always admired!
This will be the first time ABC has aired an entire season of a created-for streaming series. Though it’s no stranger to streaming crossovers, since the network aired the pilot episode of “The Mandalorian” back in February. While both shows are on Disney+, this marks the first time one of the Marvel Studios streaming series has been broadcast on a traditional terrestrial network.
This also seems to be a growing trend with CBS airing Paramount+’s “The Good Fight” and “Star Trek: Discovery.” As well as, NBC showing the Peacock series “The Resort.” With the current WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes we may be seeing more of this as networks scrabble to fill gaps in their content from struck shows.
The first three episodes of “Ms. Marvel” will debut Saturday, August 5th on ABC. Kamala Khan will return in “The Marvels,” the “Captain Marvel” sequel, which hits theaters November 10th, 2023.
