Yesterday I mentioned in a post about She-Hulk that the episode count for Marvel Studios’ first show WandaVision, will be six episodes. Well, it appears I was wrong because the studio just announced the actual number, and it’s not six.
In a press release, the studio says that the Disney+ show will consist of nine episodes.
“Marvel Studios’ WandaVision is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems,” the press release reads.
“The series is directed by Matt Shakman with Jac Schaeffer as head writer. Composer is Christophe Beck, and theme (for certain episodes) is by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Featuring nine episodes, WandaVision kicks off on Disney+ on January 15, 2021.”
What’s great about the series being nine episodes long is that if one is released every week, then the final one will be released on March 12. Exactly one week after that, the next Marvel series, Falcon and Winter Soldier, is released (March 19). So basically, up until May, when Loki and Black Widow come out, you can expect a new episode every week. After the year we had last year when nothing was released, I have to say that is just awesome.
Catch the first episode of WandaVision on Disney+ on January 15.
