WandaVision’s director, Matt Shakman has revealed that the Marvel Studios series was originally going to be 10 episodes long.

He revealed this bit of news in a recent interview (via Murphy’s Multiverse).

There was all this talk about whether WandaVision was going to be 9 or 10 episodes long.

Well, last week’s finale put an end to those debates that were propagating online and actually starting to get rather heated.

One of the reasons was Disney Plus UK’s rather poorly written tweet which seemed to say that there were two episodes after Episode 8.

Well, they actually meant two episodes left including Episode 8, yet the way they worded the tweet didn’t make that clear.

Anyway, here’s what Shakman had to say about WandaVision originally being planned to be 10 episodes long:

Well, yeah, things were constantly changing and getting rebroken The story was changing, especially a lot of the real-world stuff and the finale. There was a lot of experimentation going on and sort of trying different things out. We also at one point had 10 episodes planned and we ended up collapsing a couple, you know, just to make the rythm feel a little bit better. But yeah, they constantly changed and then of course, once we wrapped in Atlanta the pandemic hit and we ended up having months off, so then further changes during that we were doing post-production and then ideas would come up and little changes would happen as a result.
