How to watch WandaVision online

It's been a long, grueling year-and-a-half for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who've now been officially starved for content since the July 2019 release of Spider-Man: Far From Home. But the wait to re-enter the realm of the super-powered elite comes to a most welcome end with the arrival of the MCU's first small-screen series WandaVision.

Still, even with its imminent premiere, surprisingly little is known of the series. Set sometime after the events of Avengers: EndgameWandaVision follows Elizabeth Olsen's Wanda Maximoff (a.k.a. Scarlett Witch) and Paul Bettany's Vision through a wild mix of MCU-sized storytelling delivered through the nostalgia-friendly prism of classic television sitcoms. Yes, that synopsis is the very definition of bonkers. And if the show's recent TV spots are any indication, WandaVision will be a legit head trip the likes of which the MCU has never before seen.

While the world at large has yet to lay eyes on a single episode of the series, a small group of critics were recently treated to a three-episode WandaVision tease. The overall sentiment is that WandaVision is a wildly ambitious, unabashedly weird game-changer for the superhero realm that's set to take the MCU places nobody could've predicted.

Coupled with that intriguing tease, Team Marvel recently helped bump the already massive buzz around the series by announcing it would arrive with a two-episode premiere event on Friday, January 15. But be aware — if you want to lay eyes on the opening chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's next phase, you're gonna have to sign up for Disney+.

Disney+ is the only place to catch WandaVision or any of the upcoming MCU series

Just so there's no confusing matters, you should know that Disney+ is, in fact, the only place you'll be able to watch WandaVision on premiere day, or the foreseeable future. That should hardly come as a surprise — since Disney+ is the official streaming service of the House of Mouse, it only makes sense that if Marvel were looking to branch out into serialized streaming content, said content would understandably have a welcome home on Disney+.

When Disney+ made its debut in the fall of 2019, the whole of MCU fandom was already well aware that Kevin Feige and company had serialized Marvel content in the works. Little did we know the streamer was about to become ground-zero for more than a dozen series (from Loki to She-Hulk and everything in between), rife with untold potential for cinematic crossover events — not to mention a gateway into Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

After the shutdowns and delays of 2020 led Team Marvel to dramatically shift the release of the planned Phase 4 opener Black WidowWandaVision is now stepping up to carry that weighty torch. And at least for now, it seems the show is set to kick off this new era with a narratively nimble, hyper-stylish, mind-melding bang worthy of the Marvel name.

With WandaVision setting the pace, it's anybody's guess exactly where the Marvel Cinematic Universe is headed. But with so many Disney+ series in the works and an equally overstuffed slate of big screen adventures on the horizon, the world is more than ready for that journey to begin. And begin it will when WandaVision hits Disney+ on Friday, January 15, 2021.
