WandaVision Director Confirms No Plans For Season 2 At The Moment

WandaVision director, Matt Shakman, confirms that there are currently no plans for a season 2 at all. The first Marvel show to release as part of the MCU’s Phase 4, WandaVision has been a huge success since its debut back in January. Set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, the mind-bending series sees beloved MCU characters, Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany), living a blissful married life in the town of Westview. With each episode taking place in a different era of classic American sitcoms, the show has unfolded to reveal that Wanda has created a sitcom world to process her grief over Vision’s death. Over the course of the past eight episodes, the show has also seen the return of MCU characters, Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) and Jimmy Woo (Randall Park), as well as the shocking reveal of Evan Peters as Pietro Maximoff.

With the finale airing later this week in what will reportedly be the show’s longest episode, fans are eager to find out what’s in store for the future of Wanda and other characters. Wanda has been confirmed to appear in the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. While Wanda’s role in the sequel is still unclear, WandaVision is expected to lead into the film, with many theorizing how Benedict Cumberbatch could still appear as Doctor Strange in the Disney+ series. Studio president Kevin Feige recently commented that a second season is not necessarily out of the question, but that, like the movies, they are taking the shows one step at a time.

WandaVision director, Matt Shakman, spoke with Collider about the possibility of a second season, revealing that there are currently no plans to continue the show after season 1. Shakman confirms that while there are no plans for a season 2 right now, this could change down the road, depending on story ideas. Read Shakman’s full comment below:

I love working at Marvel. It’s the best place in the world. They’re so great with filmmakers and I’ve had such a great journey with this show. We have no plans for WandaVision Season 2 at all — that could change, of course. It all depends on what’s the story. We were very focused on telling this story over nine episodes and hopefully coming to a conclusion that feels satisfying and also surprising.

WandaVision is undoubtedly a massive success for Marvel and Disney, even ranking as the most popular TV show in the world since the release of the fifth episode, according to a Parrot Analytics survey. The catchy theme song, “Agatha All Along” from the seventh episode, which revealed Wanda and Vision’s nosy neighbor Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) to be the villainous Agatha Harkness, became a viral sensation, leading to a Spotify release and various remixes.

Considering WandaVision is not the only Marvel show fans are getting, it’s understandable that a second season is not the center of Marvel’s focus right now. With the upcoming Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki shows coming to Disney+, fans are getting a plethora of new MCU content. If WandaVision continues with a second season, it would need to make sense and not just be a follow-up to this season, which is set to have a satisfying conclusion.
