WandaVision Season 2

Fans of the Marvel series WandaVision have been hoping for news of a possible second season, more than a year after the season finale premiered on the Disney+ streaming service. If you’re one of those fans looking forward to more Scarlet Witch goodness on your TV, however, you might want to sit down. According to a Marvel director, WandaVision is a one-and-done series. It doesn’t look like there will be a WandaVision Season 2.

In an interview with GamesRadar’s SFX Magazine, Moon Knight director Mohamed Diab has seemingly confirmed that there will not be a WandaVision Season 2. While discussing the crossover of Marvel Cinematic Universe characters between films and television, Diab said there would be no follow-up to the hit first season. With Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen) appearing in the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel, it appears her story on the small screen is indeed over.

In describing how the MCU storylines play out across Marvel movies and TV, Diab said “It’s like a crazy world. Even with the successful shows, like WandaVision, they’re not doing season two. She jumped into a film, maybe she’s going to come back or not. I don’t know. And that’s exciting.” It’s why fans needn’t worry too much about WandaVision Season 2.

While Diab’s words may be disappointing to some fans, it does spark some hope for Elizabeth Olsen fans. WandaVision brought Scarlet Witch to the forefront of Marvel’s Phase Four storyline, and she may be an integral part of the MCU moving forward. We now know her appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is much bigger than initially thought, and Wanda may be ready to take a leadership role, with the loss of so many heroes in Avengers: Endgame. With a new Avengers lineup needing to be filled, and Doctor Strange rumored to be a part of that, Wanda would be a nice fit for a new team. That, of course, all hinges on whether she survives the events of Doctor Strange 2, and doesn’t factor as much into what could have been WandaVision Season 2.

Since Diab is one of three directors for the upcoming Marvel series Moon Knight (starring Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector), we can assume he has more insight into where Marvel is going with their slate of Disney+ series, so his word is pretty reliable. That may not mean, however, that Wanda will never come back to television, though it won’t be in WandaVision Season 2. WandaVision’s Kathryn Hahn, who played Agatha Harkness, is getting her own spinoff show, titled Agatha: House of Harkness. That should mean that a Wanda cameo is not out of the question.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told ComicBook.com even before the series premiered that a WandaVision Season 2 was not planned. However, he did admit that “I’ve been at Marvel too long to say a definite ‘no’ to anything as far as the second season of WandaVision. The fun of the MCU is obviously all the crossover we can do between series, between films.”

Regardless, Elizabeth Olsen fans won’t have to wait long for a Wanda fix. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opens May 6, 2022, only in theaters. And who knows, given the supernatural bend of Moon Knight (which premieres March 30 on Disney+) we might see Wanda even sooner. This is what we can expect in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the unexpected. And just because a character doesn’t get a titled series or movie, doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of them.
