Love it or hate it, you can’t deny that the weekly release format has kept WandaVision at the forefront of pop culture discussion over the past two months.
The high-concept series was the first Marvel Cinematic Universe production to debut on Disney Plus and its experimental premise has kept fans guessing from day one.
Over the past two weeks, some of our questions have been answered with the reveal of a secret villain pulling strings in the background as well as the true origin of the mysterious “hex”.
You can get a deeper exploration of the latest developments in our spoiler-filled WandaVision review, which unpacks the biggest revelations and theories from the penultimate episode.
Expect plenty of speculation over the next week about who the long-fabled surprise WandaVision cameo will be – and given just how star-studded the WandaVision cast is, we’d say no Marvel A-listers are entirely off the table.
WandaVision is the first original Marvel TV series on Disney Plus but certainly not the last, with several planned for this year alone that will all influence upcoming movies in some capacity. Next up is The Falcon and the Winter Soldier in March.
In order to watch Marvel’s WandaVision, you’ll need a Disney+ subscription. Sign up for £7.99 per month or £79.90 for a full year. And if you want to know how to watch the Marvel movies in order, we’ve got you covered.
For now, read on for everything you need to know about the WandaVision release schedule.
What time does the next WandaVision episode come out?
WandaVision episodes arrive on Disney Plus UK at 8:00AM (GMT) on Fridays, following the same pattern as the streamer’s previous blockbuster sci-fi series: The Mandalorian.
The safest way to avoid spoilers is to wake up early and watch over breakfast, but of course, that isn’t an option for everyone and some prefer to save it as a weekend treat (just be careful while surfing the web).
The Avengers spin-off is dropped more or less simultaneously worldwide, with new episodes becoming available in the USA at 12:00 AM PT and 3:00 AM ET, while fans in Australia got to watch them at 6:00 PM on Fridays.
When did WandaVision season one release on Disney+?
Marvel’s WandaVision premiered on Disney+ on Friday 15th January 2021, launching with two episodes to really hit the ground running.
New episodes of WandaVision have been released every subsequent Friday, all of which are setting up an epic finale in early March that will seemingly have lasting consequences for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While appearing a guest on the Lights, Camera, Pod podcast, actor Paul Bettany said: “There’s a big payoff that you go, ‘Oh, ok, now I get it’. It’s a satisfying thing.
“I really think people are going to be like, ‘Oh my God!’ and they’re going to look at the MCU in a whole new light and also have a much deeper understanding in what direction it’s moving.”
So while the show may have started off small with its quirky sitcom parody, don’t be fooled: big things are coming, including at least one surprising WandaVision cameo, if Elizabeth Olsen’s hints are to be believed.
How many episodes are in WandaVision?
As noted above, WandaVision is set to have nine episodes total released over eight weeks (after the first two episodes were released on the same day), adding up to about six hours of content.
Previously, it had been reported that the series would have six episodes, but director Matt Shakman explained to RadioTimes.com that this was a misunderstanding.
“Nothing changed, I think actually what was said earlier is that it would be a roughly six hour event series,” he said.
“So people then of course made their own conclusions about episodes, and it became known as six episodes. But no, the plan has always been nine episodes.”
