“WandaVision” — a new Disney+ series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — will debut with two new episodes of Jan. 15 rather than just one.

What’s going on?

Per ComicBook.com, Disney has released details about the upcoming debut of the Marvel show, saying it will present two new episodes for the premiere.

Here’s the full statement from Disney+ (via ComicBook.com):

“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.”

‘WandaVision’ episode count

Marvel Studios said earlier this week that the new season will have nine episodes in total. The announcement came alongside a new trailer that shows Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) living their life in a sitcom-like world.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told Entertainment Weekly he came up with the idea for the show because he was missing sitcoms.

  • “I would get ready for the day and watch some old sitcom because I couldn’t take the news anymore,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “Getting ready to go to set over the last few years, I kept thinking of how influential these programs were on our society and on myself, and how certainly I was using it as an escape from reality where things could be tied up in a nice bow in 30 minutes.”
