Disney+ will release shows on weekly basis, contain no R-rated content
Disney+ just revealed some new details about what kind of content they will stream on the platform and what the schedule of releases will be like.
The new information came from the company’s expo D23, which also brought the announcement of the upcoming movie release schedule through 2027.

A huge topic was Disney’s upcoming streaming service, which we know a little bit about. We know the service is planning reboots of Home Alone, Night at the Museum, Cheaper By The Dozen and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which is only a fraction of what they have planned. More recently, they announced a Lizzie McGuire reboot and The Mandalorian.
At the expo, Disney revealed that with its TV shows and series, it plans to release episodes on a weekly basis instead of all-at-once like Netflix. This makes the service more similar to traditional cable.
The news came when High School Musical: The Musical: The Series creator Tim Federle revealed the new Disney+ series “would release its 10 episodes on a weekly basis” to TheWrap. Then, a spokesperson confirmed that all shows would follow that format.
Another huge revelation made was that the service won’t contain any R-rated content. Reporter Eric Vespe asked if “Fox’s more adult fare (would) make it on to Disney+”. The company responded that all content would be PG-13 or softer. However, because Disney owns the majority of Hulu, the reporter says the adult content might end up there.
The service plans to drop November 14.
As previously stated, Disney just unveiled release dates for films through 2027.
