Only 2 MCU phase 4 shows get second seasons
The MCU’s Phase 4 ushered in Marvel Studios’ successful foray into TV shows, but despite its popularity, only two have been renewed at the moment.
That Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s Phase 4 included several new shows, but only two of them are getting a second season. After the launch of Disney+, Marvel Studios began producing original series for the streaming platform. The MCU TV shows have focused on supporting characters who don’t typically get as much screen time in the films and giving Marvel Comics characters their live-action debuts.
The MCU Disney+ TV shows have been hugely popular and received critical acclaim, but only two of them, Loki and What happened if…? were renewed for season 2. Of the eight TV shows, it makes sense that these two were renewed Loki played a big role in introducing the MCU’s next big villain, Kang the Conquerer What happened if…? is capable of telling stories separate from the main MCU timeline. Sequels have not been ruled out for the remaining shows, but in most cases there are other plans for the characters involved.
Why Loki and what if…? get second seasons
Loki introduced He Who Remains, a variant of Kang the Conquerer. Loki Scheduled for release in 2023, Season 2 offers the MCU an opportunity to further explore the Multiverse saga’s Thanos-level threat, Kang, and the Multiverse, having already established the TVA’s lore. What happened if…? is a unique entry into the MCU as the anthology stories focus on variant versions of popular Marvel characters. The end of What happened if…? Season 1 made it clear that there were more stories to tell, so extending the show for Season 2 makes sense as it allows it to explore those stories separately from the MCU’s main storyline. The first episode will focus on Captain Carter and has been confirmed for 2023.
Why no other Disney+ Phase 4 TV show has been officially renewed yet
Some of the MCU Disney+ shows haven’t announced Season 2, but the characters’ stories will continue on the big screen. Mrs Miracle‘s titular character will appear in the 2023s The wondersand will presumably pick up from the series’ mysterious mid-credits scene where Ms. Marvel switched places with Captain Marvel. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be followed up in a similar way Captain America: New World Order, Slated for release in 2024, Sam Wilson’s Captain America will appear alongside The Leader and Thaddeus Ross, although Bucky Barnes’ The Winter Soldier has not yet been confirmed.
WandaVisionThe main story of continued in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness with Wanda Maximoff continuing her violent search for her children. WandaVision will also have two spinoff series, Agatha: Circle of Chaos which will premiere in 2023, and vision quest which is still under development. hawk eye will also be getting a spin-off rather than a direct sequel that will see Maya Lopez return echo in 2023. The future of Clint Barton and Kate Bishop is currently unknown, but it would be surprising if they didn’t make an appearance in Phase 5 of the MCU.
moon knight is almost guaranteed to return after the show’s mid-credits scene revealed that Marc Spector’s third alter-ego, Jake Lockley, was working with Khonshu. The biggest risk comes from actor Oscar Isaac, who is keen to return but is not contractually bound to future MCU appearances. While he may return in a movie or a moon knight Season 2, it has not been announced yet. That Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s final phase 4 tv show, She-Hulk: Lawyerhas not yet been extended and may not be awarded. Kevin Feige has previously stated that Jen Walters would move to MCU films after her series.
