What If…? is an American animated anthology show based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name produced by A. C. Bradley for the streaming platform Disney+. The show looks at various timelines in the multiverse to see what would happen if important events in the MCU films were to occur otherwise.
As an anthology series, it has been renewed for a second season. Many MCU movie actors reprise their roles, including Jeffrey Wright as the Watcher, who narrates the series.
The show has received mostly positive reviews, with acclaim for the voice acting and imaginative storylines and circumstances, but some criticism for the animation, episode length, and scripting. Let’s talk about the upcoming season of this animated series.
What If…? Renewed For Another Season
The show has been picked up for a second season. In 2022, a second nine-episode season is slated to premiere. Winderbaum said it was their intention to release a new season of What If…? annually. Now we can relax and look forward to the forthcoming season.

Kevin Feige, Marvel’s Official Head, previously hinted that aspects of Marvel’s What If…? could perhaps make the jump to live-action in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He made a statement.
“I really believe the deepening fictional mythologies is a way to appreciate them more, is a way to understand them more, look at them in a different way.”
Adding, “They’ve got now two seasons of What If…? ideas underway that’s some of the best storytelling we’ve ever had that you may see spin into other mediums. It’s really the most uniquely beautiful animated series I’ve seen in a long time.”
All New Stories
Not only that, but head writer AC Bradley also had to say something about this upcoming season. He clearly mentioned about an ‘All-New Stories’.
“Going into the second season, we’re sticking with anthology form, and it’s going to be all-new stories, lots of fun, new heroes, and pulling more from Phase Four than we were obviously able to this season. Hopefully, we’ll see hints of Eternals and Shang-Chi and the Black Widow characters.”
Adding, “The fun of What If…? is that we get to explore the entire infinite multiverse, so we try and bounce around as much as we can. I want to play with all these characters, and as much as I love Captain Carter, we’ve got to share the love. I’m very excited to show new worlds, new heroes.”
Of course, no specific date has been announced yet, but we will keep our readers posted. Let us know what you’d want to see in Season 2 of What If…?
