MCU fans raved about Loki and Wanda Vision when Marvel announced its TV series, but the animated show, What If…?, came as a pleasant surprise. The show’s first season features some really fantastic episodes. Since the first season ended, fans have been waiting for What If…? Season 2.
We’re here with a bonus, though, as we also have the updates for the show’s third season. Created by AC Bradley, Marvel’s What If…? is an animated series set in the MCU multiverse. The show explores the alternate realities within the MCU and answers the hypothetical question, what if…
‘What if…?’ Season 2: Upcoming Storyline!
At the end of the first season of Marvel’s What If…? Faced with Ultron-Vision’s threat to the Multiverse, Uatu the Watcher broke his promise to never meddle in the affairs of the cosmos. After losing a battle with Ultron-Vision, Uatu assembled a hero’s team from multiple realities, who eventually defeated and captured Ultron-Vision.
Doctor Strange kept an eye on Killmonger and Ultron, who are caught up in a never-ending conflict. But if there’s one thing we know about Marvel’s multiverse Loki and Doctor Strange 2, it’s that no action is without consequences. Therefore, it’s a likely possibility that the second season will be centered around the problems that have arisen because Uatu has broken his oath not to interfere with reality.
In an interview, showrunner AC Bradley stated that season 2 of Marvel’s What If…? will continue to feature anthology stories and will include some other storylines from Phase 4. She also said that the second season would emphasize the character arcs of these heroes more and reveal an unexpected side to them. The second season will also feature a story set in 1602, another battle between Odin and The Mandarin, Tony Stark replacing Thor in a Valkyrie/Hulk team-up on Sakaar, and more. The episodes of What if…? Season 2 will feature appearances from Captain Carter, Thor, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Black Widow and others.
What if…? Season 2 release date and Season 3 extension!
The inaugural season of the MCU’s first animated series premiered on Disney+ on August 11, 2021. And the season ended with the finale episode released on October 6, 2021. The future of the show was revealed a long time ago. In December 2020, Marvel studios confirmed the second season of the animated series. An episode that was cut from the first season due to Covid-induced production complications will be added in the second season. Previously, some reports claimed that Marvel plans to release What If…? Season 2 in the summer of 2022.
However, in SDCC-2022, the creators revealed that the release date for the second part has been pushed back to early 2023. But this is not the end of good news for fans. Marvel also confirmed that after the second season, What If…? will also return for a third season. However, the release date or production has not yet been announced.
