It previously had a release date set for August of this year, but that was delayed by restrictions caused by Covid-19.

Who else is in the show?
The show will feature the return of Captain America: Civil War villain Helmut Zemo (played again here by Daniel Brühl). We'll also see Wyatt Russell in this show as USAgent – a kind of government-endorsed version of Captain America.
We'll also see the return of Agent 13, also known as Sharon Carter. She'll again by played by Emily VanCamp.
This very much feels like the next iteration of the Captain America story, as set up by the ending of Avengers: Endgame. We expect to see Sam Wilson take the shield by the end of the show.
