Captain America’s two best mates, Sam Wilson and Buckey Barnes, 

become unlikely allies in a global crisis involving a masked militia group and Captain America: Civil War’s big bad Helmut Zemo. They will both have to find their way after Steve Rogers passes the mantle of Captain America to Sam.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is a buddy comedy thrown in the middle of a high-stakes international thriller. 

In a nutshell,

DISNEY+

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is meant to set up

 what the MCU looks like without Captain America.

Steve Rogers, aged from his time-traveling adventures, 

 chose Sam as his successor at the end of Avengers: Endgame, but the Falcon notably remarks that the shield feels “like it's someone else's.”

A scene in Civil War is considered “the moment this show was born.” 

Fans know it well: a cramped Bucky in the back of an old Volkswagen asking Sam, “Can you move your seat up?” 

DISNEY+

“The show is very honest and forthright and very unapologetic about dealing with the truth of what it means to be American, Captain America, Black Captain America — and if that's even a thing.”

For head writer Malcolm Spellman this was the essence of what he wanted the show to become.

 “The idea of creating a series that features an African-American superhero, and how he responded to that [moment], sparked a million ideas,” he says.

It's the thought "of exploring a decidely Black, decidely Amercan hero in the current climate."

Marvel is planning multiple seasons for some of the Disney+ shows.

 “We have a future charted for characters post-Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but I don't want to say much more than that.”
