Disney Plus has confirmed that its first MCU TV show, WandaVision, will be out in late 2020. An announcement for the line-up later this year included a mention of the Marvel TV series as part of films and TV shows that will kick off the second year of the service, “premiering” in late 2020.
That said, you shouldn’t expect it until November 12th, but it will land before the end of the year based on the wording. During a call for earnings earlier this year, WandaVision was announced for a December release – we assume that’s still the plan.

The lineup for Disney Plus’s second year also includes (but is not limited to) a new version of Black Beauty, an Inside Pixar documentary series, and a ballet school documentary called On Pointe. It all comes before the end of 2020.
WandaVision is a series that focuses on MCU characters Wanda Maximoff and Vision – the latter came to a dramatic end in Avengers: Infinity War.

Here’s a new Coming Soon trailer for the US. Note, however, that originals on Disney Plus are likely to be released around the world at the same time, but the content of the library will vary by region.
This is the way … to be pumped for months to come. Stream favorites like Hidden Figures, X2 and Big, as well as originals like The Right Stuff by @NatGeo, Clouds, @MarvelStudios’ WandaVision and a new season of The Mandalorian. Coming soon on #DisneyPlus. pic.twitter.com/PrS1LovFq4September 16, 2020
What’s next this year?
When in the US, you can look forward to movies like Hidden Figures, Bend it Like Beckham, Planes, X2: X-Men United, and Eddie the Eagle. Outside of the US, it’s not clear which shows and movies will launch when, but we would largely expect the originals WandaVision, space drama The Right Stuff, and Marvel’s 616 documentary series to land concurrently with the US.
The 31st season of Simpsons is also coming to Disney Plus on October 2nd.
Mandalorian Season 2, which begins October 30th, is the centerpiece of the lineup that will take place over the next few months. A frozen short film called Once Upon a Snowman, which focuses on the character of Olaf from the films, will also be released on October 23.
