Marvel Studios Has Finally Confirmed WHAT IF...? Season 2's Release Window

The first season of What If...? was released in 2021 and, based on comments from the creative team which were made at the time, the plan had been for season 2 to follow in 2022.

Now, as we near the end of 2023, there's still no sign of Marvel Studios' animated Multiverse series; Disney+, however, has just confirmed reports that the show's second batch of episodes will drop "This Holiday Season." 

That's all we have right now but the news was accompanied by a brief synopsis:

The Watcher continues the journey as our guide through the vast multiverse, introducing brand-new and familiar faces throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The animated anthology series questions, revisits and twists classic Marvel Cinematic moments with an incredible voice cast that includes a host of stars who reprise their iconic roles

Last month, a supposed list of What If...? season 2 episode titles was revealed. If accurate, it sounds like we're in for a fun ride. 

• What If... Nebula Joined the Nova Corps?
• What If... Peter Quill Attacked Earth's Mightiest Heroes?
• What If... Kahhori Reshaped the World? 
• What If... Hela found the Ten Rings? 
• What If... lron Man Crashed into the Grandmaster?
• What If... Happy Hogan Saved Christmas?
• What If... Captain Carter Fought the Hydra Stomper?
• What If... The Avengers Assembled in 1602?
• What If... Strange Supreme Intervened?

There was a time when we believed the events of What If...? would impact the wider (read: live-action) Multiverse Saga. It's since become apparent that's not the case, with theories that Strange Supreme was in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ultimately proven to be incorrect. 

There's fun to be had with the premise, though, and it's widely believed that the animated series will run for a total of three seasons. 

"We got so many episode ideas, and Kevin [Feige] was like, 'Just gimme a list of like 30.' And then Kevin couldn’t even whittle it down," What If...? director Bryan Andrews previously said of his ambitious plans for the show. "Funnily enough, there were ideas that just kept staying around, so a couple of those ideas make it into Season 2, and then there's a few that might be showing up in Season 3."

"So many good ideas, so many fun ideas, some that were just way too crazy. They're just like, 'We're not ready for that yet.' So I think that’s why in Season 3, we'll see some of the crazy stuff that we were pitching out of the gate."

Are you excited for What If...?'s return this Holiday season?
