History

The series was originally slated to follow after the release of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier on Disney+. However, production delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic held back the latter's release, making WandaVision Marvel Studios' premier series on Disney+.[2]

After the series finale aired in March 2021, series director Matt Shakman revealed that Marvel Studios initially planned on having the first three episodes premiere simultaneously on Disney+ but the third episode was delayed to the following week due to COVID-19 pandemic affecting production on the finale. Delaying the episode allowed the crew an extra week to work on the finale, which was only finished two weeks prior to when it aired.[4]
