RUMOR: What If…? Getting a Season Two
In a Tweet sent on Thursday, July 8th, 2021, Joey Vazquez, who is currently a visual development artist at Marvel Studios, hinted that we may be getting a second season of What If…? We haven’t even seen the first episode, but we’re already crossing our fingers that this is more than a rumor!
What If…I told you I'm working on Season 2 of this? https://t.co/8rtf1GpdJk

Vazquez Quote Tweeted the official Marvel Studios Tweet that revealed the trailer for the first season of What If…?, with the message, “What If…I told you I’m working on Season 2 of this?”
What If… We Get a Second Season?
The upcoming What If…? animated series will give us a chance to see characters and situations from our beloved Marvel Cinematic Universe, but in ways you’ve never seen them before, Marvel Blog True Believers!
So far, we know that these What If…? stories will include unexpected versions of our favorite MCU characters, like T’Challa (if he had become Star-Lord) and Steve Rogers (if Peggy Carter had been given the Super Soldier Serum instead of him, and instead, he went full Iron Golem).
If we get a second season, that will mean we get even more out-of-continuity stories, which could include continuations from the first season (for example, the Marvel Zombies storyline has crossed many universes in the panels of the comics) as well as new stories based on the MCU shows and movies that have been released in the meantime (What If… Alligator Loki Had Been in Avengers: Infinity War).
O.K., you got us, we just want any What If…? Alligator Loki story… What If Alligator Loki and Throg (that’s Frog Thor to the uninitiated) teamed up? What If Alligator Loki fought Spider-Ham? What If Alligator Loki… I think you get the point.
Grains of Salt
But there are a few things that should be considered before you open up a box of Roxxiwine to celebrate a sophomore season of What If…?
For one thing, it is possible that some visual development occurs on a second season, but the season never actually goes into production. This could happen if Marvel is not satisfied with the response they get from What If…? (we can’t imagine this happening, Marvel Blog True Believers), or if they decide to take the franchise in a different direction (again, why change course when everything is going so well).
For another possibility, sometimes shows just get cancelled for unforeseen reasons, the original U.S.-based Ultra-Man, anyone?
