The first series was broadcast when Disney+ launched last November in the US. However, the platform hasn’t yet arrived in the UK with subscribers having to wait until March.
UK viewers will be able to watch the newly announced second series in line with the US come October.
In an earnings call to shareholders, Disney boss Bob Iger outlined details of the current slate and confirmed that it would make a swift return for a second series.
According to Yahoo Movies UK Iger said that characters in the show will take their “stories in new directions”. This seemed to hint at rumours that the show itself could spin off with other dedicated series.
Disney’s report also revealed that its new streaming platform has secured 28.6 million paying subscribers, up from the 26 million it notched up before New Year.
Additionally, Disney+ is set to air The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan as the Avenger alums, in August.
The show will follow Mackie’s Sam Wilson (aka the Falcon) under his new Captain America duties after he was enlisted to do so at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
