When will WandaVision be released?
WandaVision episodes are now rolling out on Disney Plus.
Disney has confirmed that the show will run for nine episodes. Much like The Mandalorian, after 15 January, WandaVision will be releasing episodes every Friday rather than dropping them all at once.
The final episode of WandVision will air on Friday 5 March 2021. You can read more on the episode release schedule of WandaVision here.

What is WandaVision about?
Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame
WandaVision is set to take place post Avengers: Endgame - something already interesting as by this point Vision has been destroyed by Thanos as he obtained the last Infinity Stone from him.
From initial descriptions and the trailer, we see both Wanda and Vision in a vintage suburban setting, but apparently not all is as it seems. Writer Jac Schaeffer described the show at D23 as “half classic sitcom and half full MCU spectacular”, and from the footage this seems to be quite dream-like and surreal.
Fans are speculating that this is all taking place in Wanda’s mind, and it’s a version of the story she’s created for herself to cope with losing Vision. Another theory is that this show takes place in another branch of time - also what we're expecting for the Loki show. Now that alternative dimensions have been established in the MCU, this is also entirely possible.
Olsen told audiences at Comic Con that the show would be very weird, and that we’d discover the reason that Wanda is dubbed the Scarlet Witch.
Who's in the WandaVision cast?
If the name wasn’t giveaway enough, both Elizabeth Olson (Wanda Maximoff AKA The Scarlet Witch) and Paul Bettany (Vision) will be reprising their roles for this series.
The supporting cast will also see reprises from Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis from the Thor films) and Randall Park (Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and the Wasp). Teyonah Parris will make her Marvel debut playing an adult version of Monica Rambeau, seen as a child in Captain Marvel. Kathryn Hahn will also play a 'nosy neighbour', a character which is currently unnamed.
Reliable rumours from Murphy's Multiverse are currently circulating that Evan Peters has also been added to cast, the actor who played Quicksilver in the X-Men films Days of Future Past, Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix.
Another leak has surfaced from toy tipster Serlentpops, which shows that there will be a Funko Pop pack for Vision and Quicksilver. Therefore, could we be seeing a multiverse version of Quicksilver? Will WandaVision reunite the Scarlet Witch with her brother, even if he is from a different world?
The series is created and written by Jac Schaeffer - also the writer or the upcoming MCU film Black Widow. Directing will be done by Matt Shakman, who has previously worked on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Fargo and Game of Thrones.
