When is ‘Under the Banner of Heaven’ Coming To Disney Plus?

The highly anticipated FX series ‘Under The Banner of Heaven’ will soon be debuting on Hulu in the United States. The series has proven popular with critics so far with an 88% on Rotten Tomatoes. The series will be coming to Hulu and Disney+ in many regions worldwide. But when exactly is Under The Banner of Heaven coming to Disney+? Read on for all the details we know so far!


What is Under The Banner Of Heaven About?

FX’s “Under the Banner of Heaven,” the limited series inspired by the true-crime bestseller by Jon Krakauer, follows the events that led to the 1984 murder of Brenda Wright Lafferty (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and her baby daughter in a suburb in the Salt Lake Valley, Utah.

As Detective Jeb Pyre (Andrew Garfield) investigates events that transpired within the Lafferty family, he uncovers buried truths about the origins of the LDS religion and the violent consequences of unyielding faith. What Pyre, a devout Mormon, unearths leads him to question his own faith.

The seven-episode limited series also stars Sam Worthington, Denise Gough, Wyatt Russell, Billy Howle, Gil Birmingham, Adelaide Clemens, Rory Culkin, Seth Numrich, Chloe Pirrie and Sandra Seacat.

“Under the Banner of Heaven” is created by Academy Award®-winner Dustin Lance Black, who also serves as showrunner and executive producer. Also serving as executive producers are Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Anna Culp for Imagine Television; Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan of Aggregate Films; David Mackenzie and Gillian Berrie. “Under the Banner of Heaven” is produced by FX Productions.


Under The Banner of Heaven Hulu Release Date

Disney has confirmed that the upcoming limited series “Under the Banner of Heaven” will premiere on Hulu on Thursday, April 28th. The premiere will feature the first two episodes, with a new episode available weekly for the next five weeks.


When is Under The Banner of Heaven Coming To Disney Plus?

Disney has confirmed that ’Under The Banner of Heaven’ will be coming to Disney+ under the Star banner sometime in 2022, but an exact release date has not been announced.

The series won’t be released on Disney+ internationally simultaneously in the United States. Disney has confirmed everything that’s coming to Disney+ In May for many regions, and unfortunately, this didn’t include ‘Under The Banner of Heaven’. Unless Disney decides to make a surprise announcement, which isn’t totally out of the question, it doesn’t look like the series will be arriving before June 2022 on Disney+.

UPDATE 5/9/22: Disney has announced that FX’s “Under the Banner of Heaven” will premiere on Disney+ under the Star banner in Canada on Wednesday, June 8, 2022. 

UPDATE 5/19/22: Disney has announced that “Under the Banner of Heaven” will release on Disney+ under the Star banner in the UK and Ireland on Wednesday, July 27, 2022. 


Under The Banner of Heaven Disney Plus Release Date

As noted above, we don’t have an official Disney+ release date for Under The Banner of Heaven. Unfortunately, Disney has been widely unpredictable with their recent release strategy for Star Originals on Disney+. For example, some regions received ‘How I Met Your Father’ on Disney+ months after the United States.

It’s believed that FX/Hulu originals haven’t been in sync with Disney+ due to delays with international dubbing. This is a strange reason for English speaking countries such as the UK, Ireland, Australia etc… Still, for whatever reason, most countries outside the United States appear to be grouped together.

If we had to guess, we would expect to see the Under The Banner of Heaven arrive sometime in June 2022.
