MCU Star Gives Update on 'WandaVision Season 2'
Will WandaVision continue with a Season 2? Well, kind of, according to Debra Jo Rupp.
While discussing her work on Netflix's That '90s Show, Rupp specifically called the new MCU series "the second season of WandaVision for Marvel," comparing it to American Horror Story with every season being "a whole new kind of a thing:"
"It’s the second season of 'WandaVision' for Marvel. It’s very much like 'American Horror Story,' where each season is a whole new kind of a thing. I was shocked when they called me, because I really thought that would be it, and I was fine with that. But when they called, I got so excited because it’s a character I never get to play. She’s gonna be great fun."
When asked about what she's most looking forward to, she remained fairly tight-lipped while noting that she's "terrified of these people" at Marvel:
"I cannot tell you. I am terrified of these people. They are the most secretive people on the face of the Earth. You are forbidden to talk about anything. I’m afraid they would come arrest me."
However, she did confirm that she's playing the same Mrs. Hart that she did in WandaVision.
Interestingly, Mrs. Hart was the name of Rupp's character within the Hex, with her real identity being Sharon Davis in Westview. Could this be an indication that the Hex could come back into play or might Agatha retcon Rupp's role in the show?
The actress also revealed that she's "packing...to go to Atlanta" for the next few weeks to film more material for Coven of Chaos:
This I can tell you: I am basically the same person that I was in 'Wandavision,' Mrs. Hart, but in a different kind of a thing. We’ve shot in LA, and I’m packing now as we speak, to go to Atlanta for two months to continue shooting."
This also lines up with comments made by Moon Knight director Mohamed Diab in March 2022, expressing how crazy it was to see shows like WandaVision not renewed for a second season even with its success:
"It’s like a crazy world. Even with the successful shows, like 'WandaVision,' they’re not doing season two. She jumped into a film, maybe she’s going to come back or not. I don’t know. And that’s exciting."
Will WandaVision Season Trend Continue After Agatha?
Hearing Rupp explain that Agatha: Coven of Chaos will serve as a second season of WandaVision isn't too surprising, although it does put into question if and how the series will continue in further seasons.
It's already been heavily indicated that WandaVision would heavily influence everything coming in its spin-off series, especially with more than half a dozen actors reprising their roles for Agatha.
It will even match its predecessor in episode count, with Coven of Chaos reportedly bringing a nine-episode adventure the same way WandaVision did when it kicked off the entire Phase 4 slate in January 2021.
And with the plot confirmed to tie directly into the events that WandaVision laid out, the two stories are sure to be as intricately linked as any two MCU projects out there.
With the rumored Vision Quest also potentially continuing elements of WandaVision through Paul Bettany's hero, could that show effectively act as the series' third season?
Agatha: Coven of Chaos is currently filming, although it doesn't have a confirmed release date yet.
