Marvel TV Winter Schedule
With so many new and returning Marvel shows premiering this winter, it’s hard to keep track. When does the Punisher premiere? Where can you watch Runaways? Is Agents of SHIELD returning this year? Let’s break down all the upcoming Winter premiere dates!
Friday, November 17 – NETFLIX

“After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.”
Tuesday November 21 – HULU
A Buffy the Vampire Slayer-style show is coming to the Marvel universe in Hulu’s new Marvel series Runaways. The iconic Brian K. Vaughn comic will come to life on November 21st. Since Hulu is a streaming site, its hard to say what time the episodes will upload — potentially midnight on the 21st? Marvel’s Runaways, stars Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder, Lyrica Okano as Nico Minoru, Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean, Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes, Gregg Sulkin as Chase Stein and Allegra Acosta as Molly Hernandez.
“Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? Marvel’s Runaways is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe–their parents.”
Agents of SHIELD
Friday December 1, 8PM – ABC
Agents if SHIELD returns for a special 2-hour premiere on Friday December 1st at 8PM. When the show returns for Season 5 the main cast of Coulson, Daisy, Mack, Elena, Fitz, May and Simmons will find themselves in Space!

The space setting will present new challenges to our Agents, as well as expand the cosmic cinematic universe.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” returns for its fifth exciting season. Agent Coulson and the team escaped LMD Aida’s Framework and awakened in the real world. Little did they know that Aida was now fully human – and with multiple Inhuman abilities – with the dangerous notion that, with Fitz by her side, she could change the world. After defeating her with the aid of Ghost Rider, the team went out for a celebration but were interrupted by a mysterious man who rendered them frozen. The next thing we see is Coulson onboard a ship … in space.
Coulson will discover that some, but not all, of his S.H.I.E.L.D. colleagues were taken with him and placed onboard the ship. As they come in contact with some of the vessel’s inhabitants, it becomes abundantly clear that something has gone terribly awry, and the team will need to figure out their role and delve deeper into this nightmarish mystery to try to right what has gone incredibly wrong.”
