‘WANDAVISION’ Season 1 Seemingly Set for an 8-Week Run
The information comes from an official Disney site.
Looks like Twilight Time is gonna go on for a while. After more than a year without any MCU content, Marvel fans are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the upcoming Disney+ series, WandaVision. The show centers around Marvel’s newly wedded couple; Wanda Maximoff and Vision, living out their lives in the peaceful, suburban town of WestView. A lot of questions have been asked regarding the show since the trailers sometimes tend to leave us with more questions than answers. How is Vision back? What is it with all these sitcom era homages? Is it all in Wanda’s head? Does it have to do with the Mind Stone? All of these questions will hopefully be answered during the series which premieres on January 15th. One of the questions a lot of fans have been waiting answers to is how many episodes the show would have? Many have been reporting that WandaVision would have a total of 6 episodes, but it seems that we’re in for a whole lot more WandaVision content than that.
Disney Latino, an official Disney site, whose main focus in on Latin America, recently released this article relating to WandaVision’s premiere on Disney+. The translation is as follows:
“On January 15, 2021, WandaVision opens on Disney + , Disney’s streaming platform. The series starring Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff) and Paul Bettany (Vision) will have a new episode available every Friday, and will reach the end of its first season on March 5.”
A lot of things to take in with this article. So first things first, the site states that following the premiere of the series on January 15th, we will be treated to a new episode EACH friday until the end of the season on March 5th. Meaning that WandaVision will be debuting a new episode each week for 8 weeks. That means there are bound to be AT LEAST 8 episodes from this series. The second important thing to notice is that it mentions that WandaVision will reach the end of “its first season”. Is it hinting at the possibility of perhaps a second season, or continuation of Wanda and Vision’s story? Only time will tell. The site also provided additional details on the series:
“This new Marvel Studios production is set in Westview. Its protagonists describe it as a sitcom that spans many decades to the present and finds the characters of Vision and Scarlet Witch living an apparent married life in suburban bliss. The new series will not only be a great reunion for those who follow these characters in movies and graphic novels, but it will also allow us to know other sides of their stories.”
This tidbit provides us with another clue as to what we can expect from WandaVision, teasing the possibilities of their stories being explored more in depth with the show than ever before, perhaps shedding some light on the unclear origins of some of these characters and how they came to be the characters we know and love today.
Official Plot Synopsis: Starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, “WandaVision” is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. The show features the return of Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis & Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, as well as the introduction of new faces, such as Teyonah Parris as an adult Monica Rambeau and Kathryn Hahn as the nosey neighbor, Agnes.
