X-Men ’97’s Record-High Episode Count

According to a Disney+ press release, the first season of X-Men ’97 consists of 10 episodes, breaking the current record for the longest Marvel Studios-produced season with a weekly release schedule.

Disney+ also recently confirmed that X-Men ’97 will debut with two episodes when it premieres on March 20.

Here are the lengths of every Marvel Studios season on Disney+ so far:

WandaVision – 9 episodes
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier – 6 episodes
Loki – 6 episodes
What If…? – 9 episodes
Hawkeye – 6 episodes
Moon Knight – 6 episodes
Ms. Marvel – 6 episodes
I Am Groot – 5 episodes
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law – 9 episodes
Secret Invasion – 6 episodes
I Am Groot Season 2 – 5 episodes
Loki Season 2 – 6 episodes
What If…? Season 2 – 9 episodes
Echo – 5 episodes

While the episode count for this animated revival is unprecedented, it’s unlikely to hold the record for long.

Daredevil: Born Again is confirmed to have an 18-episode season when it drops in 2025, but the series will reportedly be released in two halves instead of a consistent week-by-week format.

As reported by CBR, Wonder Man is also rumored to have a 10-episode season, eventually tying X-Men ’97 for the record when it debuts.

Is X-Men ’97 Season 1 Short?

Since X-Men ’97 is an animated series with a large ensemble cast of iconic Marvel mutants, a longer season isn’t just logical but expected.

However, the upcoming season is still short in comparison to seasons of X-Men: The Animated Series, only tying with the show’s fifth and final season’s episode count.

It’s also worth noting that fans don’t know how long each episode of X Men will be.

Marvel Studios Disney+ series have an established trend of varying episode runtimes, but episodes of the original X-Men show typically averaged 22 minutes.

If X-Men ’97 follows suit, the series may be a Marvel Disney+ record breaker in terms of episode count, but not necessarily in length.

Fans should expect to see and hear more about Marvel Studios’ first full-fledged mutant project soon.
