Up until quite recently, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was contained largely to the big screen. WandaVision represents one of the brand's first forays into TV, and it was incredibly well-received by audiences. The series got solid reviews, with Marvel fans eagerly anticipating each new bit of information that the show revealed. Ever since the Season 1 finale aired, people have been wondering if we'd ever see a Season 2. Unfortunately, it looks like we've seen the last of Westview.
Will there be a 'WandaVision' Season 2?
Like the rest of Marvel's new TV offerings, WandaVision was announced as a project for just one season. However, that on its own didn't mean that WandaVision had to be done after the Season 1 finale. But the finale itself was a hint that the show was over.
Episode 9 of the series was literally titled "The Series Finale." You can't really get much more final than that, right? And even though the finale did end on a bit of a cliffhanger, it seems to be hinting at Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness rather than a continuation of the WandaVision series.
Initially, when Elizabeth Olsen was asked about the possibility of doing a second season during an interview with Elle, she didn't shut the door on it definitively. “The reason it’s a sitcom shows itself later in the show," she explained. "When Kevin [Feige] told me, it didn't feel so bizarre. It felt like a great way to start our story.”
Marvel head Kevin Feige echoed Elizabeth's sentiments during a Television Critics Association press session. “I’ve been at Marvel too long to say a definite ‘No’ to anything as far as a second season of WandaVision,” he said. Tellingly, he also said, "Lizzie Olsen will go from WandaVision to the Doctor Strange film."
While some upcoming Marvel shows may end up getting a second season, others will head directly into a feature film. Kevin also noted that the plan for Wanda and Doctor Strange is something that we will see from other characters who star in Disney Plus's Marvel content. Ms. Marvel, which is expected on Disney Plus later in 2021, will reportedly lead directly into Captain Marvel's sequel, The Marvels, as opposed to a second season of the upcoming series.
Elizabeth Olsen eventually shut the door on a Season 2 for 'WandaVision.'
Although Kevin had said that he didn't want to say that a second season wasn't coming, Elizabeth seemed to confirm that the series was done in an interview for Variety's "Actors on Actors" series. Speaking with Kaley Cuoco, when asked about whether a second season was in the works, Elizabeth said, "No. It's definitely a limited series."
She went on to say, "I don’t know. I mean, with Marvel, you can never say no." However, with both Elizabeth and Kevin saying that WandaVision Season 2 isn't in the plans right now, it looks like Marvel may be done with Westview.
