She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is not only the newest Marvel Studios TV series, it’s also the MCU’s first outright comedy series and it is the first show since Hawkeye to have an OG Avenger in its cast. The series stars Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters, cousin of Bruce Banner (a.k.a. the Hulk, a.k.a. Mark Ruffalo). She’s a lawyer and, thanks to a big whoops, also a Hulk. No wonder you’re excited to watch the show! There’s nothing else like it in the MCU — and it’s out now!
Oh — wait, is it out right now? It’s not? Okay, let’s get to the bottom of this and figure out…
When does She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premiere on Disney+?
Not today! It actually debuts on Thursday, August 18 at 3:00 a.m. ET / 12 a.m. PT.
But don’t Marvel shows always come out on Wednesdays?
Yeah, Marvel shows have premiered on Wednesdays ever since the premiere of Loki back in the summer of 2021. Now the release day for new episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is Thursday.
Wasn’t She-Hulk: Attorney at Law supposed to come out on August 17?
Yes it was! Your memory is correct. The series was originally announced as premiering on Wednesday, August 17 but it was moved back a day to Thursday, August 18 just a couple weeks ahead of the premiere. So, the new premiere date is August 18.
And new She-Hulk episodes will come out every Thursday?
Yes, new episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will premiere on Disney+ every Thursday until October 13.
Why was the She-Hulk premiere date moved back to Thursday?
Disney hasn’t given a reason for the date change, but we can take a number of guesses. It’s possible that Disney wants to give its Marvel and Star Wars shows their own premiere days, instead of releasing new episodes of She-Hulk and Andor (premiering September 21) on the same day. It’s also likely that Disney+ wants to offer new content on more days so that users will log into the service multiple days a week instead of just on Wednesday. There’s also the possibility that, considering all the hubbub surrounding the future of HBO following its acquisition by Discovery, Disney+ sees an opening on Thursdays, which was traditionally when HBO Max released episodes. Hell, maybe Marvel just wanted to give the VFX team an extra day to work on the show. These are all guesses and the real reason could be all, some, or none of the above.
There’s one thing we do know: She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premieres on Disney+ on Thursday, August 18 at 3:00 a.m. PT / 12 a.m. ET.
