Is Marvel's 'What If' Season 2 Officially Confirmed?
Everything we know about the show's renewal.
The first season of Marvel’s animated anthology series, What If, has officially ended. And now, everyone’s wondering if we’ll get season 2 of the show. Well, here’s everything you need to know about it.
Marvel premiered the first season of What If earlier this year in August. Each episode of the animated show featured a different set of Marvel characters in an alternate timeline. For instance, in the first episode of What If, we saw a timeline where Peggy Carter took the super-soldier serum. Similarly, one episode showed us what would have happened if most members of the Avengers were turned into zombies.
Honestly, most MCU fans loved deep-diving into the multiverse through What If. So, it’s no wonder that fans are eager to find out if we’ll get another season.

Is Marvel’s What If Getting a Season 2?
Marvel fans would be delighted to know that What If Season 2 is officially confirmed. Interestingly, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed the second season back in December 2019.
Initially, the studio wanted the first and the second season to have ten episodes each. However, there were some production issues with Season 1 due to COVID. So, the showrunners decided to go with nine episodes in the first season, moving the last episode to the second season.

Is There a Release Date For What If Season 2?
Even though the second season is official, we still don’t have a particular release date for the show’s return. However, Executive producer Brad Winderbaum said in an interview with Collider that they want to release new seasons of What If annually.
Also, given that Kevin Feige confirmed the second season two years back, it’s not too crazy to assume that Season 2 is already in production. So, if everything goes right, we might see Season 2 arriving sometime in 2022. Meanwhile, you can go back and binge-watch all episodes of What If Season 1, available to watch on Disney Plus.
