During today's Walt Disney Company's Investor Day presentation, Marvel Studios officially confirmed that Falcon and Winter Solider will be heading to Disney+, with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprising their cinematic roles.
In a presentation where numerous details about Disney's upcoming streaming service were revealed, Disney announced that the series would be released some time in the first year of the streaming service, which itself launches on Nov. 12. In all likelihood, that means the series will most likely premiere sometime in 2020.

While details about the series are still forthcoming, this series will be one of the first releases from a post-Avengers: Endgame MCU.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that Falcon and Winter Soldier, along with other newly-confirmed shows like Loki and WandaVision would feature major long-form storylines with meaningful ramifications that would be felt in every corner of the MCU. He also said that the shows would be productions that rival MCU movies.
In a screenshot of Disney+ smart TV app, Disney also unveiled the official logo for the series at the presentation.
It's worth noting that both Winter Soldier and Falcon are currently dead in the MCU. While Chris Evans' Captain America will almost certainly do whatever it takes to avenge or revive his fallen partners in Avengers: Endgame, it's still not totally clear how these heroes will return to living side of the MCU. If Falcon and Bucky find their way back to live anytime soon, it will almost certainly be in Endgame.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau and Bradley Cooper, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Josh Brolin. The film arrives April 26.
