"In the age of light, a darkness rises," is the tagline for Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Acolyte on Disney+, and the darkness has already risen as the first two episodes debuted June 4. Beyond the question of what happened in the episode, the question on everyone's mind right now is: when should viewers expect the next episode of Star Wars: The Acolyte?

The as-yet-untitled Star Wars: The Acolyte season 1 episode 5 is scheduled to debut Tuesday, June 25 at 9pm Eastern / 6pm Pacific.

The Acolyte episode 5 is directed by Alex Garcia Lopez (The Witcher, Daredevil), and written by Kor Adana and Cameron Squires.

All 8 episodes of Star Wars: The Acolyte season 1 air Tuesdays on Disney+, culminating with the Acolyte season finale on July 16.
