Marvel’s first series on Disney+ is a huge hit. Here’s what to expect from the next chapter.
WandaVision could have a second season, but no one’s ready to confirm it yet.
On February 24, Marvel Studios president Feige told the Television Critics Association that we can expect future seasons of some Marvel series on Disney+, but not all. Some will connect directly with a feature film instead. WandaVision, for one, will segue into the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Per Variety, Feige said, “There are some shows that have been built to further expand our storytelling and then go into features. We’ve already announced Lizzie Olsen being a part of Doctor Strange 2. We’ve announced Teyonah Parris being part of Captain Marvel 2. There are some shows that, while always interconnected, are being built with multiple seasons in mind.”
That being said, he told the TCA, “I’ve been at Marvel too long to say a definite ‘No’ to anything as far as a second season of WandaVision. The fun of the MCU is obviously all the crossover we can do between series, between films … Sometimes it will go into a season 2, sometimes it will go into a feature and back into a series.”
PAUL BETTANY MIGHT HAVE SPILLED SOME SECRETS FOR NEXT SEASON.
Marvel actors and actresses are kept on a notoriously tight leash when it comes to spoilers, but that doesn’t mean they won’t let details slip every now and again. In an interview with Esquire just days before the WandaVision season finale, Paul Bettany, who plays Vision, speculated on the fate of White Vision, the reincarnation of Vision’s remains post-Endgame.
“How do I do this without spoilers?” he said. “I guess we’ve seen what happens to Wanda when love is taken away from her. And I wonder what that would look like with Vision… I mean, that’s the thing, right? I’ve never had a loved one to lose… I don’t know what grief is because I’ve never had a loved one to lose. There is so much to get into with him because it’s been ten minutes here, ten minutes there, in the movies. Now we’re sort of just starting to sort of peel back some stuff.”
Notice that last sentence: “We’re sort of just starting.” That means there’s more of Vision to come. And if that’s the case, we can expect Vision to be a huge part of season 2, if it does come about.
A second season wouldn’t come out for some time.
Even if we weren’t in the middle of a pandemic, Marvel Studios wouldn’t likely dive immediately into filming WandaVision season 2. Because the show is connected with the larger MCU, the shows and films have to follow a specific chronology, and The Falcon and the Winter Solider is next in line, followed by several other shows and films until we reach another Wanda appearance in The Multiverse of Madness in 2022. We know WandaVision leads directly into Multiverse, so the absolute earliest we could expect a second season of WandaVision would be late 2022.
Olsen’s lips are sealed.
None of the cast have commented directly on if a season 2 is in the pipeline. But Olsen did tell Collider, “It could [have a second season].” I don’t know if you could get any more vague than that, but at least it’s not a “no”! For now, it looks like we’ll just have to settle for re-runs.
