This was a bit of a surprise given that it was both originally dated for a Friday and other series such as WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier had launched just ahead of the weekend.
But the move paid off as Disney said that Loki, which was created by Michael Waldron and directed by Kate Herron, became its most-watched series premiere.
Going forward, the streamer will now drop all of its originals on Wednesdays. This will include all original scripted, unscripted and animated series.
Disney Original Movies will continue to premiere on Fridays.
