The promise that we would get to see this series “before the end of 2020” was technically untrue, but only by a few weeks. The show will start streaming on Jan. 15, as announced by a tweet from Marvel Studios today (fitting, as today is the one-year anniversary of Disney+).

The series, directed by Matt Shakman, sees Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany return in the roles of Wanda Maximoff and Vision. The characters are living idealized suburban lives when they begin to realize that everything is not what it seems.
Marvel Studios also released some new stills from the show, including one (pictured, top) that shows Wanda and Vision sleeping in separate twin beds, something sit-com couples — such as Lucy and Ricky in I Love Lucy — often did in the ’50s.
At this time, Disney has not provided official details about the number of episodes that fans can expect, or whether the show will premiere in weekly installments or all at once.
This will be the first MCU content to debut since Spider-Man: Far From Home was in theaters last summer, and it will officially kick off Phase Four. Who else is counting down the days??
