The premise of Disney Plus’ What If…? made it seem like the animated Marvel series might run indefinitely as the studio keeps putting out live-action projects, but it looks like this chapter of the big multiverse story is just about over.

Though What If…? season 3 doesn’t have a premiere date, Entertainment Weekly reports that it will be the final installment in the series that gave us Jeffrey Wright’s Uatu the Watcher and Hayley Atwell as Captain Peggy Carter. Speaking on this week’s episode of Marvel’s new official podcast, What If…? executive producer Brad Winderbaum described the upcoming season as the “completion of a trilogy” and teased that it will go “beyond the first two seasons in its exploration of the multiverse.”

Notably, the end of What If…? comes at a time when the trajectory of Marvel’s Multiverse Saga — the collection of films and series building to 2027’s Avengers: Secret Wars — has seemed a bit shaky due to ongoing delays with films like Mahershala Ali’s Blade. Kevin Feige’s recent assertion that the new Fantastic Four film will introduce yet another alternate universe suggests that we’re probably still in for at least a few more years of MCU multiversal shenanigans. But What If…? coming to an end could easily be a (promising) sign that the studio is finally gearing up to leave this era behind.
