Marvel Studios Exec Calls ‘What If…?’ Season 3 a “Culmination of the Trilogy” Teasing More Details About the Show

what if

‘What If…?’ was a breath of fresh air in the MCU; despite the first season of the show receiving a somewhat mixed reception from fans, it was successful enough to warrant additional seasons and expand the multiverse that the creators have been working on drawing loose inspiration from several notable storylines.

Season 2 was released in a somewhat unconventional manner over the course of nine days; a single episode was released, like a gift for fans to unwrap over the holiday season.

It’s long been rumored that ‘What If…?’ Season 3 will be the final season of the show, especially with the head writer leaving recently, moving on to work on different projects, and now head of the animation Brad Winderbaum seemingly confirmed this idea in a latest interview with ComicBook, calling Season 3 “a culmination of the trilogy”

What If…? Season Three is — that might be the one that comes out next, in terms of animation. That is the culmination of a trilogy. We’re actually close to completing that one, and it really feels like you’ve gone through this amazing emotional experience with Uatu, in a way that’s… What’s great about The Watcher is that he presents himself as uncaring, and cold, and just an observer, but he cares more than everybody [and] anybody. That is on full display in that third season.

Early previews of ‘What If…?’ Season 3 were released shortly after Season 2 ended in late 2023. These previews confirmed that characters such as Sam Wilson / Captain America (Anthony Mackie), Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), Bill Foster / Goliath (Laurence Fishburne), Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), and Alexi Shostakov / Red Guardian (David Harbour) will appear in the episodes. Additionally, America Ferrera will join the cast as Agent Morales.
