The news has left WandaVision fans disheartened...
Elizabeth Olsen has finally put an end to all the speculations about season 2 of WandaVision by confirming that there will be none. The Marvel mini-series saw Olsen and Paul Bettany play Wanda Maximoff and Vision respectively, receiving praises from critics and audiences alike.
The mini-series was originally supposed to premiere later in the MCU, however, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, WandaVision opened Phase Four of the MCU when it premiered on January 15 this year. Establishing a place in the extended universe, WandaVision leads the direct set-up story for Marvel's upcoming 2022 release, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which will see Olsen return as Wanda. The show was designed as a limited-episode series to deeply explore the supporting characters in the MCU. It was quickly followed by The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, also premiering on Disney+Hotstar.
In an interview with Variety, Olsen spilled some beans about the speculations of a second season. Being paired up with The Flight Attendant's Kaley Cuoco on the Actor on Actor session, the duo spoke on different topics. On being asked by Cuoco, a self-proclaimed WandaVision fan, on the possibility of the show's return, Olsen was quick to shut down speculations saying, "No. No. It’s definitely a limited series." The actor also shared the news that she has just finished shooting for Doctor Strange 2.
Olsen also said that the show was always intended as a limited series. Earlier in January this year, WandaVision creator Jac Schaeffer also hinted that the series would feel “very complete,” pointing to a self-contained story arc. Similarly, the President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, went on the record to say that no second season is planned, and pointed to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness being the continuation of WandaVision’s story.
