Marvel Studios released a new trailer for “WandaVision,” and revealed the length of the first season as the show prepares for its debut this month.

What’s happened?

Marvel shared a new TV spot for the upcoming Disney+ show “WandaVision.” The eerie trailer shows Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) living their life in a sitcom-like world before they realize things are not as they seem.

The series — directed by Matt Shakman — appears to blend reality with an alternate reality, potentially connecting the show to a new part of the multiverse.

  • The show will debut Jan. 15 on Disney+.

How many episodes?

Marvel has revealed the first season will have nine episodes, according to multiple reports.

  • This is one more episode than “The Mandalorian,” the hit Disney+ “Star Wars” show that only had eight episodes in each of its first two seasons.

New theme song

The trailer also has a theme song for the show, written by “Frozen” songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.

  • “‘WandaVision is such a cool, strange, one-of-a-kind project,” said Lopez, according to Digital Spy. “When the director, Matt Shakman — an old friend from my college days — pitched it to us, we didn’t have to think about it. We loved the bright feeling of American sitcoms mixed with the deep sense of unease the story had, and it was a really inviting challenge to help set that tone.”
