WandaVision, the TV show which became a runaway success for Marvel Studios, will not see a second season as it is only intended to be a limited series according to actor Elizabeth Olsen.
Originally, we would have had The Falcon And The Winter Soldier as the first foray into Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+, but the upheaval to the entertainment industry as a result of the pandemic led to WandaVision setting this group of shows and movies into motion. Following Wanda and Vision in an anachronistic setting, it seemed like the characters had been dropped into popular TV shows across the 20th century. It then transpires through strange events and fourth-wall-breaks that the heroes might be trapped here against their will, and that a dark conspiracy is beating at the heart of this surreal suburb where they live. The most impressive elements of WandaVision are these transitions from different decades of television, and the actors actually attended a sitcom "boot camp" that enabled them to tap into the styles of acting in each one. For the sets, tungsten lights were used for the episodes "taking place" in the 1950s through to the 1970s, as per the conventions of that time, whereas LED lighting was used in the more modern episodes.
We bid farewell to Westview in the finale of WandaVision, but the drama doesn't stop there. Check out the rest of the shows and movies on the way to the small and silver screen for the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
At the time of its release, it was Disney+'s most-watched series premiere on its opening weekend, beating the second season of The Mandalorian. The show received a lot of praise for its production, performances from Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, and thematic exploration of mental health in the wake of trauma. However, those who are hoping for a continuation of Scarlet Witch's storyline will have to prepare themselves for this news. Speaking to actor Kaley Cuoco for Variety's "Actor on Actor" session, Olsen dismissed any possibilities of a second season of WandaVision. "It's definitely a limited series," she replied.
When Cuoco joked that The Big Bang Theory was also meant to be a limited series, Olsen clarified what she'd said about the future of the show. "I mean, I'm saying that," she continued. "I don't know. I mean, with Marvel, you can never say no. People die." Naturally, fans are a little dismayed at the announcement, but of course, this isn't the end of these characters. In fact, executive producer Kevin Feige hinted that the events of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness would pick up where WandaVision left off. Intriguing indeed.
