Marvel’s WandaVision will have a two-episode premiere, Disney announced today. In a press release, we get confirmation WandaVision‘s initial release plans, which is that “The first 2 episodes will premiere on Disney+ on Friday, January 15. Episode 3 will debut on Friday, January 22.” That’s a change from the Disney+ release format for Star Wars hit series The Mandalorian, which releases just one episode per week. Marvel Studios hasn’t put out any new content since the 2019 release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, so this could be a nice little extra to get fans back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a feature-length premiere event.

…Or, WandaVision may just need the two-episode launchpad to really suck viewers in. It would make sense: the series seems to be a slow-burn build. It’ll start with Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) living as a happy couple in a sitcom-style fantasy world before that “reality” shows cracks of something more warped and sinister. It could take both episodes to really establish that darker intrigue beneath the TV and comic reference points WandaVision seems to be packed with. And again, since over a year has gone by without an MCU movie, two episodes of WandaVision will feel like a feature-film event fed to hungry fans.

“Marvel Studios’ WandaVision blends the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems…The series 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.”
