This confirmation falls close in line to what Murphy’s Multiverse reported on in June. Their release stated that WandaVision would consist of “at least nine episodes,” and there are ways that this could still be true in an eight-week runtime.
According to the official Disney Latino website, via Murphy’s Multiverse, WandaVision will release a new episode every Friday across eight weeks, from January 15 to March 5.
This confirms that the series’ first season will consist of at least eight episodes.
The listing on the website appears as follows:
On January 15, 2021, WandaVision opens on Disney+ , Disney’s streaming platform. The series starring Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff) and Paul Bettany (Vision) will have a new episode available every Friday, and will reach the end of its debut season on March 5.
Marvel Studios may be planning a double episode for the show’s debut, which has been used for past Marvel shows like Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter. This wouldn’t come as a shock for WandaVision, as the studio may want to give the fans an extra treat after the extended delay between the MCU’s Phase 3 and Phase 4.
