The following post contains spoilers for season 1 of WandaVision. Wanda Maximoff's superhero powers may not include seeing the future, but Elizabeth Olsen does seem to have a hint of foresight—at least when it comes to her new Disney+ show. According to the actress, there may be chances that her Marvel miniseries, WandaVision, will get greenlit for a second season.
The show, starring Olsen as Wanda, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch, and Paul Bettany as her synthezoid significant other, officially kicked off MCU's Phase 4 when it began airing on January 15. And after a whirlwind season fans are eager to know if Wanda's storyline will continue past the nine episodes of season 1.
Co-starring Kathryn Hahn, Kat Dennings, Teyonah Parris, and Randall Park, season 1 explores Wanda's trauma as she and Vision live out sitcoms in suburbia. The series received mixed reviews early on, with some critics noting the strange pacing of the first few episodes. But fans have, by and large, been blown away by showrunner Jac Schaeffer's unique and funny (and very bingeable) approach to Marvel storytelling. (And let's not forget the plethora of mind-blowing bombshells the show drops every episode—clues that continue to expand the entire MCU.)
Will there be a season 2 of WandaVision?
In an interview with Collider, Olsen laughingly teased, "It could [have a second season]." While it doesn't seem like much of a comment, the fact that the actress didn't slam close the door closed on the opportunity is telling in a world where things are kept tightly under wraps. She added that she doesn't have any concrete details yet about the show continuing on.
Kevin Feige recently also weighed in on the chances of the show being renewed. Speaking at TCA, the Marvel studio head said he has no current plans to greenlight WandaVision season 2. Instead, he confirmed that WandaVision season 1 would flow directly into the Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Feige did leave things open-ended. “I’ve been at Marvel too long to say a definite ‘No’ to anything as far as a second season of WandaVision,” he said per Deadline.
He teased that some of the other shows on the Disney+ slate (Loki, Ms. Marvel) are being considered for second seasons.
“The fun of the MCU is obviously all the crossover we can do between series, between films. So it will vary based on the story. Sometimes it will go into a season 2, sometimes it will go into a feature and back into a series,” Feige added.
What would season 2 of WandaVision be about?
It's hard to say, considering all the twists and turns of season 1. But we do know that Olsen has already begun working on Sam Raimi's Doctor Strange sequel. (Though the same can't be said for Bettany's Vision, who technically died in Avengers: Infinity War, and seems to only exist within Wanda's Westview hex.) In typical Marvel fashion, every storyline will be interconnected which means the events of the newly-announced Spider-Man: No Way Home, slated for December 2021, could also have ramifications for Wanda's future storyline.
There's also the possibility that season 2 of WandaVision wouldn't even revolve around Wanda or Vision. Instead, their twins Tommy and Billy—a.k.a. Wiccan and Speed—could helm the season, fighting to save the universe as the Young Avengers.
When would season 2 of WandaVision premiere?
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will reportedly hit theaters on March 25, 2022. So if WandaVision got renewed it likely wouldn't premiere until late 2022 or early 2023.
Who would star in WandaVision season 2?
It's unclear. The entire supporting cast quickly became fan favorites, so it would be hard to imagine a second season without, for instance, Kathryn Hahn's Agatha Harkness (she's a gas!) or Kat Dennings's Darcy Lewis. The good news? Teyonah Parris's Monica Rambeau is confirmed for Captain Marvel 2 so fans will definitely see more of her emerging superpowers.
