Paul Bettany is Vision and Elizabeth Olsen is Wanda Maximoff in Marvel Studios’ “WandaVision,” exclusively on Disney+. “WandaVision” has hit the middle of season, and there is plenty more to come in the Marvel show.

Disney+ shared the mid-season trailer for “WandaVision” on Monday morning, giving Marvel fans a new look at what’s to come in the series’ final episodes.

The trailer — which is about 90 seconds long — begins where we left off with the season’s fourth episode, where Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris),  Jimmy Woo (Randall Park) and Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) discover an anomaly in New Jersey that is — oddly — showing Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) living their lives in a sitcom, as I wrote about for the Deseret News.

You can watch the new trailer below.

What did we see?

The trailer shows off a number of clips for what’s to come in the upcoming episodes of the show, including Vision and Wanda discovering that not all is what it seems in the sitcom reality.

  • There are also a few shots that show we’re going to see sitcom scenes similar to shows from the ‘90s and mid-2010s. In fact, there’s one clip where Wanda talks to the screen like a mockumentary show, similar to “The Office” or “Modern Family.”

More sitcom ‘winks’ on the way

Before the show premiered, Olsen told “Access Hollywood” that “WandaVision” will nod to “Family Ties” and “Full House” in upcoming episodes.

  • “We have a wink (to ‘Full House’), but it’s mostly a ‘Family Ties’ reference, that episode,” she said. “That was most of their inspiration for that specific episode, but we do wink a bit. You can’t not (wink) — it was a very big show!”

Marvel chief creative officer Kevin Feige agreed, telling Variety that the show drew inspiration from sitcoms.

(Family sitcoms) meant a lot to us, dated and silly as they may seem, there’s a comfort factor there. That was the primary factor behind the comic inspiration versus what led us to putting putting these ideas together, Feige said. There is a wonderful thing that happened with Matt’s background (as a child actor) as he’s talked about, which is so amazing. Lizzie’s background with her sisters (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen), which didn’t even occur to me until I think we were standing in the writers room with pictures of ‘Full House’ on the wall and I went ‘Oh, right.’
