The series will debut on March 19th and will follow Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) as they go up against an unknown threat while taking on the legacy of Captain America.
During his time in the MCU, Mackie’s character has never been in the spotlight, always in the shadows of bigger stars like Captain America and Iron Man. In an interview with Variety, Anthony Mackie has opened up about his journey to this point and also the possibility of the second season of TFatWS.
Speaking about the upcoming series, Mackie stated he was both excited and a little frightened at the same time.

Mackie also went on to briefly discuss his future in the MCU, stating that as far as he is aware there won’t be a season 2 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. He also does not know if he will feature in any upcoming theatrical releases. This may just be the usual Marvel secrecy code, or he may be avoiding any potential spoilers for the upcoming series.
I suppose we will have to wait and see over the course of the series.
