The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers made its debut on Disney+ on March 26, 2021, and it continued to focus on the junior ice hockey team. Since they became established as a successful team, they are only accepting the best players and some hopefuls have to find new ways of joining in. Fans are keen to know how many episodes are in the first season.

How many episodes are in The Mighty Ducks Game Changers?

The Disney Plus series follows 12-year-old Evan Morrow (played by Brady Noon) who was kicked out of The Mighty Ducks.

Not wanting to give up his dream, he decided to form a new team of dark horses to bring the elite team down a peg or two.

They had help from the Ducks’ original leader, Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) and fans were thrilled to see him reprise his role.

Since leaving the original film, he went on to become the owner of an ice rink and takes the underdogs under his wing.

The series is understood to be made up of 10 half-hour-long episodes, with the first having aired on March 26.

The remaining episodes will continue to air weekly on Fridays, and the current schedule is as follows:

Episode two – ‘Dusters’ – April 2

Episode three – ‘Breakaway’ – April 9

Episode four – ‘Hockey Moms’ – April 16

Episode five – ‘Cherry Picker’ – April 23

Episode six – ‘Spirit of the Ducks’ – April 30

The titles for the final four episodes are yet to be released, but it should mean the season finale will air on May 28.

In March 2021 it was reported some of the original stars would be reprising their roles for the sixth episode.

Elden Henson will return as Fulton Reed, Matt Doherty as Lester Averman, Vinny Larusso as Adam “Cake Eater” Banks, Marguerite Moreau as Connie “the Velvet Hammer” Moreau, Garrette Henson as Guy Germaine, and Justin Wong as Ken “Little Bash Brother” Wu.

The stars originally took on the roles almost 30 years ago, so this will be an iconic moment for fans of the film.

Creator Steven Brill told Entertainment Weekly: “It starts with a fun encounter Coach Bombay has with Fulton — they have an interesting run-in on the street reminiscent of ways they used to meet each other back in the early days.

“This chance meeting between Bombay and Fulton leads to a bigger story.”

Fans have already taken to Twitter to express their love for the series after the premiere episode.

One said: “The Mighty Ducks Game Changers is so much fun.  I need a feel good series after feeling so defeated at the end of Supernatural. That made me smile.”

Another said: “Watching the mighty ducks game changers and that theme song hit me with a blast of nostalgia oh my god.” [Sic]

A third added: “Absolutely loved the first episode of #mightyducks Game Changers. Instantly fell in love with this new team, and seeing Gordon Bombay back brings up so much nostalgia. Can’t wait to see where this show goes!”

If fans cannot wait for the second episode, they will be pleased to hear the original film has been added to Disney Plus.

While they are waiting for the new team to return, they can immerse themselves in nostalgia.

Actor Estevez congratulated the new cast in a special message on Instagram, saying: “I am so incredibly proud of all of you.

“You brought your A-game to the ice every day, I’m not only proud to share the screen with you.

“I’m proud to be your coach, so ducks, fly together. Quack, quack, quack.”
