The release of the highly anticipated revival of X-Men: The Animated Series, X-Men ’97, is just around the corner. Beginning on March 20th, the first season of Marvel Animation’s new streaming series will hit Disney Plus. Ahead of that, Disney has provided a look at the full release schedule and the titles of all 10 episodes.

As is often the case with series developed for its streaming network, Disney will roll out X-Men ’97 with a two-part premiere,”To Me, My X-Men” and “Mutant Liberation Begins.” From there, fans can look forward to one episode a week through May 15th. Season one of the new series is set to wrap with a 3-part story, “Tolerance is Extinction.”

Given the streaming strategy, X-Men ’97‘s run will overlap significantly with the third and final season of Lucasfilm’s animated Star Wars series, The Bad Batch. The Bad Batch’s 15-episode run ends on May 1st, roughly one month before Star Wars next live-action series, The Acolyte, is rumored to premiere on Disney Plus.
