Marvel’s What If…? is set to debut next week on Disney Plus Hotstar. During a virtual press conference, the show’s executive producer, Brad Winderbaum, revealed that Captain Carter from the first season of What If…? will be retruning in some capacity in the future seasons.
Winderbaum said, “We realized, I think, early on in development, as we were starting to get AC’s [Bradley] scripts and starting to look at the arc of the series that there was going to be a character that bubbles up and became more important. Not more important than the rest, but it had a strong relationship with the Watcher who was really our driving force behind the series. And that’s Captain Carter. We realized as we started developing the second season, that Captain Carter was going to be the character we would revisit in every season, and continue that adventure. Obviously, we’re telling a story on a giant multiversal canvas. So, you never really know who’s gonna pop up where and when. It’s very much an anthology, but there’s always opportunity for fun connections to be made.”
What If…?’s creative team has already started working on the next season. Marvel Studios’ boss Kevin Feige had previously confirmed that What If…? will get another season. However, the team behind the series seems to have plans for revisiting Captain Carter’s story across various seasons, which suggests that they are hoping to make more than two seasons. Along with Captain Carter, fans can expect other characters to return in future seasons.
Marvel’s What If…? premieres on Disney Plus Hostar Premium on August 11.
