Marvel is setting up for a festive treat with the much-awaited Season 2 of ‘What If…?’, confirmed to drop during this holiday season. Fans have been eager for the series’ return, and Disney+ has finally signaled that the wait will soon be over, earmarking the season’s arrival for some time within the next two months.
The announcement was made without a precise date, but the promise of holiday timing has sparked excitement among viewers. ‘What If…?’ holds the distinction of being one of the few Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) shows to secure a second season, following its animated predecessor’s positive reception in 2021. The series explores alternate realities within the MCU, offering a unique twist on familiar stories.

The Watcher returns with new twists
As for what’s to come, the new season of ‘What If…?’ continues with The Watcher guiding us through the multiverse. We’re expecting to see both new and familiar faces, all with the voices of the A-List cast that fans have come to know and love from the MCU. Although the series won’t directly impact the live-action MCU stories, it still promises a fresh and enjoyable experience.
A glimpse into the alternate Marvel realities
Some of the upcoming adventures hinted through episode titles include scenarios where Nebula becomes part of the Nova Corps, Hela gets her hands on the Ten Rings, and Happy Hogan has to save Christmas. We’ll also see what would happen if Captain Carter fought the Hydra Stomper, Iron Man crashed into the Grandmaster’s world, and if the Avengers assembled back in 1602. These are just a few of the thrilling possibilities that ‘What If…?’ Season 2 will bring to the table.
Anticipation builds amid delays
The delay in the release could be chalked up to the post-pandemic production backlog, a common issue that has affected many studios. Bryan Andrews, the director, teased that while some ideas were too bold for now, they may surface in a potential Season 3. This anticipation builds as the promise of what’s to come tickles the imagination of fans worldwide.
As we approach the season of cheer, Marvel’s ‘What If…?’ Season 2 appears to be the perfect gift for fans, combining the spirit of the holidays with the boundless creativity of the MCU multiverse. Keep your eyes peeled on Disney+ this holiday season for a trip through what could have been, with The Watcher as our ever-curious guide.
