The critically acclaimed Scarlet Witch, Elizabeth Olsen, in a recent interview, has revealed the future of Disney+ megahit ‘WandaVision’ and, to the audience’s dismay, the series will not get renewed for a second season. As said by Olsen, the limited saga has reached its planned finale, hence there is no narrative left for future.
Created by Jac Schaeffer for the streaming service Disney+, the American miniseries WandaVision turned out to be a running success for the studio, on account of the Marvel comic characters ‘Wanda Maximoff’ and ‘Vision’ featured in the television show. Comprised of nine episodes, the series had shared continuity with the films of the franchise. Premiered in January 2021, the series had picked up it’s timeline from the events after the Avengers: Endgame.
On the words of the WandaVision premise, “three weeks after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Wanda Maximoff and Vision are living an idyllic suburban life in the town of Westview, New Jersey, trying to conceal their true natures. As their surroundings begin to move through different decades and they encounter various television tropes, the couple suspects that things are not as they seem.”
Moreover, owing to its exceptional storyline and events linking to the MCU, the series had garnered massive praises and viewership. Hence, the calls and anticipations for the second season of WandaVision had been hanging in the air ever since the first chapter.
However, although fans had been looking forward to a renewal of the series, the movie central Elizabeth Olsen, who portrayed the titular Scarlet Witch/ Wanda Miximoff has cleared the air regarding the second season of WandaVision, and as stated by the actress, the series will not get renewed for a fresh installment.
Elizabeth Olsen weighs in on the future of WandaVision
During a recent chat with Kaley Cuoco for Variety’s Actors on Actors series, Elizabeth Olsen revealed, that the show is most likely not returning as there is nothing significant left to the storyline.
Upon being asked by the Big Bang Theory star, about the possible coming back, the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ actor uttered a firm and resolute “no.”
“It’s definitely a limited series,” she continued.
Nevertheless, giving a little ray of hope to the diehard series admirers, Elizabeth Olsen added,
“I mean, I’m saying that. I don’t know. I mean, with Marvel, you can never say no. People die; people [come back to life].”
Furthermore, she went on to explain that if the show does get renewed, it would also be a “shock” to her.
“The thing that I did learn through [my Facebook Watch series] Sorry for Your Loss and WandaVision is I love doing television,” she said.
“I do miss, I think, the four-five week experience of making a film and that just feels so exciting and like camp for a little bit. But I think this six-month experience of really hard work with the same people [on a show], it’s exhausting [and] it just feels really good,” she added.
While, a second season of WandaVision isn’t likely, Olsen is set to reprise her dual role of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness next year.
