The MCU's Phase 5 has experienced delays in the past months, with several projects being pushed further down in the slate. What If...? Season 2 is one of the victims of the delays.
Marvel Studios' animated project was initially slated for a late 2022 premiere. But then, the studio delayed its release to early 2023.
However, Disney+'s new teaser for its 2023 projects didn't include What If...? Season 2, and since it's already March and a premiere date has yet to be officially announced, another delay is on the horizon.
What If Season 2 Receives Promising Release Date Update
Entertainment scooper KC Walsh shared that What If...? Season 2 has a release window of the first quarter of 2024.
This update, which is not confirmed by Disney or Marvel Studios, lines up with a previous rumor stating that What If...?'s second season was bumped up to next year.
The first quarter of any year is between January 1 and March 31, meaning that Season 2 could release anytime during those days.
Meanwhile, the scooper also revealed that What If...? Season 3 has a rumored 2025 release date, which was designated with a "TBD" tag alongside it. While it is unclear what the full context of this "TBD" tag refers to, it likely means that this 2025 release window for Season 3 is less certain.
Marvel Studios and Disney have not confirmed or commented on this.
Will Marvel Delay What If Season 2 Again?
At this point, it is unknown if Marvel Studios will further delay What If...? Season 2 from this reported 2024 release window, considering that there are rumored plans for a third season.
Moreover, official merchandise from What If...? Season 2 recently emerged online, indicating that an announcement for the animated show's release date could be imminent.
An early 2024 release is a promising sign for What If...? Season 2 despite the delays that the show experienced. This would mean that the animated project could be one, or even the first project, for Marvel Studios during that year.
Season 1 of What If...? is now streaming on Disney+.
