Since WandaVision's series finale on March 5th, the only content more pervasive throughout the fandom than plot hole debates is speculation over a second season.

Curiosity over a show's renewal status is common, despite studios usually greenlighting additional season(s) publicly before the prior ends. When such an announcement doesn't come, you can expect plenty of internet speculation and clickbait fueled by the desperate hope of mourning fans. Will Fleabag come back for a third season? The End Of The F***ing World was too good not to keep going, right?

9 of the Biggest Disappointments in "WandaVision"

With the milestone series now wrapped, we look back on revelations that left fans deflated

"Wandavision" finale

Major spoilers below for all of Wandavision.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe's official debut television series, WandaVision, is probably my favorite entry in the entire franchise... for at least half of it. Even with the unenviable responsibility of kicking off phase four of the MCU (reported to consist of over 24 films and television programs), the show delivered a remarkably original premise and well-crafted presentation that stands on its own.

Spoilers ahead for WandaVision episodes 1 through 6

WandaVision Malcolm in the Middle Intro

While an ordinary sitcom would have used this week to give us a Valentine's Day episode, WandaVision exists in a world (inside of a world, inside of a world) of its own.

Anyone following the series is well aware of the show's conceit: each episode finds Marvel characters Wanda Maximoff and The Vision living in a television sitcom "reality," deliberately imitating classic American sitcoms from the 1950s to the present.

8 Options for Donald Trump to Come Back "in Some Form"

Whether as a Pokémon, a Force ghost, or a cable news pundit, we can expect to see a lot more of Donald Trump.

On Wednesday, Donald Trump addressed a gathering of his followers at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland for the final speech of his presidency.

Preparing to leave behind the position he called his "greatest honor and privilege," he told his followers that they are "amazing people," and that he will "always fight" for them. He went on to wish Joe Biden's administration "great luck and great success" to a tepid response, but when he told them "we love you, we will be back... in some form," the cheers were raucous.

Wonder Woman 1984 is the long-awaited sequel of 2017's Wonder Woman, with Gal Gadot portraying the titular superhero for the fourth time in a feature film.

Originally slated for release more than a year ago, on Dec. 13, 2019, the film's debut in the United States was pushed a surprising number of times before finally seeing the light of day on Dec. 25, 2020, via HBO Max. The film was first delayed until June, 2020, due to "rushed pre and post-production," but then received an additional extra seven months for the post-production team to perfect the film due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"The Mandalorian" Fixes Star Wars | *FINALE REVIEW*

Warning | Spoilers ahead for The Mandalorian "Chapter 16: The Rescue"

The Mandalorian's second season has been a light in an otherwise dreary year since its premiere in October.

Critics and fans of the series and of Star Wars in general have more or less unanimously praised the show this year for taking what audiences loved about the first season, improving and expanding on it. Nearly every episode was championed as "the best one yet" upon release, and the Season 2 finale will likely be no different.

This review contains major spoilers for The Mandalorian, Chapters 1-16.
