What If..? proved to be a fun ride, and while some episodes were better than others, the animated series delivered the wacky trip through the Multiverse fans had been hoping for.
Season 2 has already been confirmed and is expected to premiere on Disney+ later this year. Earlier today, Murphy's Multiverse ran a since-deleted story about a newsletter for the streaming service sent out to customers in the Netherlands. On it, What If...? was listed as returning as soon as July 20 - a pretty unbelievable date seeing as that's less than three weeks from now.
Marvel Studios hasn't released so much as a single second of footage from the series. With that in mind, it would be pretty baffling for the show to just be randomly dropped between Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
Disney+ Netherlands (via The Direct) has now confirmed that the July 2022 release date for What If...? season 2 was incorrect, so we can put this particular rumour to bed before it gets started.
We've found that the streaming service doesn't tend to reveal premiere dates too far in advance, so it's hard to even guess where this series will fit into a pretty busy 2022. After all, even after She-Hulk arrives, there's still whatever that Werewolf by Night Halloween special is and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special to squeeze in.
However, based on when those projects are probably heading our way, we'd bank on seeing more What If...? either in September or November.
Now that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed they will have a presence at Comic-Con, announcements about the Phase 4 slate are likely imminent. We also have Disney+ Day and D23 to look forward to this September, both of which are likely to bring a lot of big news.
What are you hoping to see when What If...? returns later this year?
