We’re over a week away from the long-awaited premiere of WandaVision, which is the first Marvel Studios TV series and the kickstart to the MCU’s Phase 4. The real question, of course, is how long will the series last?

The original rumored episode count for WandaVision was six episodes, but Marvel Studios have officially released the episode count. We’re going to be around for nine episodes of WandaVision for season 1, which is an impressive amount to be honest. And, with the weekly episode release schedule, it rolls beautifully into The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s March 19 premiere date.

WandaVision will also tie into the upcoming Spider-Man film and Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. So it’s going to be a strong start to Phase 4 of the MCU.

In a press release, Marvel wrote on WandaVision:

“Marvel Studios’ WandaVision is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. The series is directed by Matt Shakman with Jac Schaeffer as head writer. Composer is Christophe Beck, and theme (for certain episodes) is by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Featuring nine episodes, WandaVision kicks off on Disney+ on January 15, 2021.”

Anderson-Lopez and Lopez are the wife-husband duo that penned songs for Disney like “Let It Go”. They’re writing unique songs for the various “TV” aspects of the series, which will pay homage to shows from the 1950s to the 00s.

WandaVision will premiere on Jan. 15, 2021.
