WandaVision, the first of a whole slate of Marvel Cinematic Universe television spinoffs exclusive to Disney Plus, will premiere on on Jan. 15, 2021.
As reported by Polygon, Disney Plus shared the release date Thursday on its official Twitter account, along with a teaser. Composed largely of already released images, the brief video still hints at the era-hopping, sitcom-family-with-a-dark-twist story that WandaVision seems likely to tell.

The series picks up with Wanda Maximoff, the Scarlet Witch, living happily ever after with her android beau, Vision. Which is interesting, given that Vision didn’t even live long enough to get snapped during the events of Avengers: Infinity War — and so was not among those resurrected at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
Fans were originally promised a release date of sometime in December. However, thanks to the pandemic, the project was pushed back a few weeks. The later premiere date is slightly disappointing to fans, but overall fans just seem excited that we finally have a date. On the “plus” side (see what I did there?), a premiere date of Jan. 15, 2021 gives Disney time to finish airing the second season of The Mandalorian. The Star Wars series is the biggest Disney Plus original so far and is set to end on Dec. 18.
