The continuation of Marvel’s Disney Plus series What If…? has been on the 2022 release slate since the debut of Season 1. However, after a bout of radio silence, fans began asking if What If…? Season 2 had been cancelled.

TVLine shared a plot synopsis for Season 2, which we have outlined below, alongside confirmation that Bradley would be returning to serve as a head writer once again.
