Secret Invasion was once part of a huge group of upcoming streaming shows that were set to debut across 2023, according to reports. What If…? Season 2, Ironheart, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, Echo, and Loki Season 2 were all slated for release, and now it looks like most have been pushed, with only Loki Season 2 confirmed to release this year on October 6, 2023, and Echo on November 29, 2023.
