This article is a preview for Willow season 1, episode 5 and contains details of the release date, time, and where to watch online. It contains spoilers for previous episodes.

Willow is a 2022 sequel series to the 1988 Ron Howard dark fantasy film of the same name, which is something people might need reminding of since… well, it’s been a while. An unlikely choice for a revival, the series airs on Disney+ and is presumably an attempt at giving the streamer its very own rival to stuff like House of the Dragon on HBO and The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power on Prime Video.

Here’s what happened in Willow episode 4:

  • The gang took refuge in Nockmaar to try and purge the lich from Graydon before it totally corrupted him.
  • All of the gang were tormented by the castle’s magic, playing on their own fears and anxieties.
  • A corrupted Graydon was able to lure Elora to the High Tower, where she glimpsed many scenes from the original movie, including Bavmorda’s defeat, which Willow barely had a role in.
  • After Kit finally reveals that Elora grew the ekleberry bush, she’s able to such the lich out of Graydon, but in doing so she sees a vision of him murdering his brother as a child.
  • At the end of the episode Airk woke up in a ruined Immemorial City.

How many episodes will Willow have?

Willow will have eight episodes released on a weekly cadence through January 11, 2023. Here’s the full schedule:

  • Episode 1 (November 30)
  • Episode 2 (November 30)
  • Episode 3 (December 7)
  • Episode 4 (December 14)
  • Episode 5 (December 21)
  • Episode 6 (December 28)
  • Episode 7 (January 4)
  • Episode 8 (January 11)

Who is in the cast?

  • Warwick Davis as Willow Ufgood
  • Ruby Cruz as Kit
  • Erin Kellyman as Jade
  • Ellie Bamber as Dove
  • Tony Revolori as Graydon
  • Amar Chadha-Patel as Boorman
  • Dempsey Bryk as Airk
  • Joanne Whalley as Sorsha


We don’t have an official title or synopsis for the next episode, but we can make some logical assumptions:

  • So, the big question here is the accuracy of what Elora saw of Graydon’s past, and how this informs their relationship.
  • Now that Boorman has addressed Kit and Jade’s relationship, I think they might become a little more open about it themselves.
  • Having seen Airk, I suspect that we’ll begin to dovetail his experiences with the fellowship’s attempts to reach him.
  • Elora’s magical abilities will presumably start to flourish more now that she finally believes in her own power.
