Marvel fans know one thing for sure: if they don’t watch early, their superhero stories will be spoiled. Fans want to make sure they’re among the first to watch every new project, but “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” requires some early morning viewing.

Like “WandaVision,” Marvel Studios’ latest TV show will be released in the middle of the night for U.S. viewers. Expect new episodes of “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” to drop at 3 a.m. EDT. The west coast has a slightly more reasonable release time at 12 a.m. PDT.

Some might think that a middle of the night release would mean not many people are watching the very second Disney+ releases a show. Those people don’t know Marvel fans. The enthusiastic fandom managed to crash the Disney+ site twice during the first season of “WandaVision” as users rushed to watch at premiere time, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Expect the same enthusiasm for “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” The series kicks off Friday, March 19 with the first episode. The superhero show will be released on a weekly basis with new episodes on Fridays for six weeks, and each installment is expected to be about 45-55 minutes.

Fans who want to avoid spoilers before watching should be sure to tune in first thing Friday morning.

The show is set six months after “Avengers: Endgame.” Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) are adjusting to life after the Blip, in which they disappeared for five years. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is gone, and they are trying to figure out how to handle the legacy of the shield. Though Steve gave Sam the shield in “Endgame,” taking on the patriotic symbol is more complicated for Sam.

Sam and Bucky will have to team up to take on bad guys, new and familiar. Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) will return and the guys will also take on Flag Smasher.
