Why WandaVision Season 2 Will Happen (Just Not The Way You Think)

WandaVision remains one of Marvel’s best Disney+ shows, but hasn’t been renewed for Season 2, which could take a surprising shape.


The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s very first Disney+ series, WandaVision, is finally getting a second season, albeit in a non-traditional way. The original series became iconic for its homages to various classic sitcoms, all while building its underlying theme around the darkness that grief can create in a person, specifically Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff. After running for nine episodes, WandaVision ended its first season on a triumphant note, kicking off Phase 4 of the MCU and Scarlet Witch’s ongoing story that would eventually lead directly into the events of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Although most Marvel Disney+ series do not get second seasons, WandaVision certainly proved entertaining enough to warrant a continuation in some form. Although the series itself was designed as a limited event with no plans for a continuation, the idea is for more WandaVision is simply too exciting to pass up. Marvel Studios has yet to officially announce a new season of WandaVisionbut there is still some hope that the show will continue in a different form, finding spiritual successors through Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which could serve as another season of the superhero franchise.

The MCU’s WandaVision Season 2 is coming via two different shows

Kathryn Hahn as Agatha Harkness enchantress in WandaVision

WandaVisionSeason 2 comes in part with Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha Harkness spinoff, Agatha: Coven of Chaos. The series is set to follow the eponymous witch, who served as the primary antagonist of WandaVision on what could prove to be a very important entry into Phase 5 and the Multiverse Saga as a whole. While Marvel Studios has been tight-lipped about the details Coven of Chaosseries is likely to come to Disney+ later this year or early 2024, exploring the magical side of the MCU in the same way as its spiritual predecessor, while also picking up Agatha’s story after she was defeated by the Scarlet Witch.

The second of WandaVisionhis spiritual successors, Vision Quest, is still unconfirmed by Marvel Studios. Although not much is known about Vision Questhis story, the topic is most likely about the fallout of White Vision’s escape during WandaVision finale, a moment that remained one of the MCU’s biggest mysteries throughout Phase 4. Presumably, WandaVisionThe male lead, Paul Bettany, will return once again as the newly built synthezoid on an attempt to regain his identity. The character’s close association with Wanda Maximoff also fuels rumors that Elizabeth Olsen’s former Avenger may also appear in the series despite her apparent death in Multiverse of Madness.

How Coven Of Chaos & Vision Quest Will Continue WandaVision

Both Coven of Chaos and Vision Quest looks like they will continue WandaVision in one form or another. In addition to Aubrey Plaza’s mysterious character, Coven of Chaos will also see Emma Caulfield and Debra Jo Rupp reprise their roles as residents of Westview after appearing throughout WandaVision, suggesting that the two shows will be closely connected. Also, Agatha’s close association with mystical cults and the occult could be used to explain the origin of the Scarlet Witch, who seems to have a critical place in the Multiverse saga, and set up Wanda’s long-awaited return in some way, although she appears not physically in Coven of Chaos.

Vision’s spinoff series has an even closer connection to WandaVision than Coven of Chaos, as it will likely follow one of the show’s biggest cliffhangers. Even more exciting, Vision Quest could include Scarlet Witch’s return, standing alone as the most likely occasion for Wanda Maximoff to reappear, perhaps finally reunited with her rebuilt husband. The series is also sure to expand upon certain subplots set up by its predecessor, including SWORD’s current activities and the ultimate fate of Vision’s consciousness. Just like Agatha: Coven of Chaos, Vision Quest continues the legacy of WandaVision in the MCU, making for an even better, if not unusual, Season 2.
