Your Thanksgiving viewing is set: Marvel’s long-anticipated Hawkeye series, starring Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld, finally has a premiere date. It’ll debut on Disney+ on Wednesday, November 24th!
Disney+ announced the date with an exclusive (if unremarkable) look at the show’s two stars:

Hawkeye will introduce Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, who—in the comics, at least—idolized Hawkeye and eventually took up his mantle. She’s perhaps best known from Matt Fraction and David Aja’s run on the Hawkeye comics, in which she and Barton worked together to stop the “tracksuit mafia” from running Clint’s neighbors out of his Bed-Stuy apartment building. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Renner describes the show’s Kate like this: “She has a wonderfully annoying and equally charming manner about her, because she’s such a fangirl of Hawkeye. The relationship grows from that, but the biggest problem for Clint is Kate Bishop and the onslaught of problems that she brings into his life.”
As much as you can read anything into this image, it looks like either Clint Barton has found Kate’s training space, or they’re doing some training together. (But this is way too much color for it to belong to Clint “I have no fun, ever, what is fun” Barton alone.)
Florence Pugh, who played Yelena in Black Widow, is also set to appear in Hawkeye, which makes a lot of sense now that we’ve seen the post-credits scene in Widow. The show also stars Vera Farmiga as Kate Bishop’s mother, and Alaqua Cox as Echo/Maya Lopez, who may be getting her own spinoff series before too long.
Hawkeye is the fifth Marvel series to air on Disney+ this year, following WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and the upcoming What If…?, which begins August 11th. Ms. Marvel is expected to arrive this year as well, but a release date hasn’t so much as been hinted at yet.
Hawkeye premieres on Disney+ on Wednesday, November 24th.
