The first big animated project for Marvel Studios for Disney+ was “What If?” which follows the Watcher, as he guides viewers through the vast multiverse, introducing brand new and familiar faces throughout the MCU. The series questions, revisits and twists classic Marvel Cinematic moments with an incredible voice cast that includes a host of stars who reprise their iconic roles.

Last Christmas, Disney released the second season of the animated series, “What If?” and following the season finale being released, a short clip from the upcoming third season was released featuring Bucky Barnes and the Red Guardian on a road trip together.

Disney hasn’t yet revealed when the third season of “What If?” will be released on Disney+, but recently, Brad Winderbaum — Head of Marvel Streaming, Television and Animation, appeared on the new official Marvel Studios podcast, where he gave an update on the third season.

“It feels like the completion of a trilogy. It takes us to places that you’d never expect. It goes beyond the first two seasons in its exploration of the multiverse. It pulls in characters that are very unexpected, and has what I think is an extremely moving and very fulfilling culmination for Uatu the Watcher.”

Marvel has been reducing the amount of new original content it creates for Disney+, not just to save money but to also help increase the quality and ease concerns that the fans are becoming worn out with constant new releases. Development on the third season of “What If?” has been underway for a number of years already, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if they’ve decided to scale back on future seasons. And Brad’s comments about it being considered a trilogy, seem to line up with that.

Roger’s Take: I do wonder if Marvel is looking to wrap up the show after three seasons, because it can’t be cheap to make, since it uses so many stars from the movies and shows, which are much more expensive than your typical animated series. I’ve been a fan of the “What If?” comic books for years and it makes the perfect Disney+ show, because they can tell stories, you’d never see on the big screen. I also think it’s a show that could benefit from being used more like specials, with random episodes being released throughout the year, rather than its current format.

Do you think Marvel’s “What If?” will end after three seasons? Let me know on social media!
