It's been rough several months for MCU fans. Due to the rampant coronavirus pandemic, filming and release dates for various Marvel Studios films and series were delayed. With Black Widow and Eternals delayed until 2021 and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier getting pushed back as well, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are definitely in a content drought.
WandaVision, a Disney+ series starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprising their roles from various Marvel Studios movies, has fallen victim to these release date shifts as well. Fans thought they might receive the pleasure of watching it in December 2020, but Disney+ may have different plans.
According to a screenshot of a chat session with Disney+ customer support (via Twitter user @cinemAddikt) in Latin America, WandaVision has been delayed to January. However, it's important to note that this delay could be regional, and the upcoming Marvel series could still hit the streaming service by its heavily-rumored December release date.
Roughly translated, the message from Disney+ Support says:
Yes, they are looking to promote the Disney classics, but of course there will be much more content, as previously mentioned, like The Simpsons, we'll have the Marvel movies and series; WandaVision premieres in January. National Geographic documentaries, etc.

Hoy me comuniqué con el servicio al cliente de Disney+ sobre el contenido y me dijeron lo siguiente:
- Tendremos las 31 temporadas de Los Simpsons el 17 de noviembre.
- WandaVision se estrenará en ENERO
- Tendremos Avatar y La Novicia Rebelde pic.twitter.com/RtWvDOCI91
WHAT THIS MEANS
If any fan feels the urge to panic, they shouldn't do so just yet. As mentioned above, this January premiere date for WandaVision might just be for Latin American territories and have no bearing on when Disney+ releases the show in the United States or other countries.
Still, it is indeed unfortunate for fans in Latin America because, at this point, everyone has waited long enough for new MCU content.
Adding to the assumption that the show is just delayed for certain countries is that the release of The Mandalorian Season two, another popular Disney+ series, was reportedly delayed in Spain and other parts of the globe.
Additionally, for what it's worth, series star Kat Dennings recently spoke about Disney+ wanting to get WandaVision to fans by the end of 2020.
Whenever WandaVision ends up debuting, it will certainly be worth the wait, judging by a very intriguing trailer that was put out by Disney late September 2020.
