Let Us Take A Look Back At Season 1
The 9th episode of season 1, released on October 6, 2021, under the title ‘what if…the watcher broke his oath?’ has two parts in the episode. The Watcher is gathering an effective team consisting of heroes to defeat Ultron, who had planned to destroy life in the multiverse.
Under the watch of The Watcher, major heroes or Guardians of Multiverse have united, and they have defeated Ultron with some additional help from Arnim Zola’s AI.
On the other hand, complications arise when Killmonger and Zola fight over the left-over Infinity Stones and Strange Supreme, and The Watcher had to trap them in a pocket universe.
In the end, The Watcher and other Guardians return to their individual universe, but Natasha is placed in a different world that ends in her death.
When Are The Updates Or Chances For A Tenth Episode?
The season ninth episode ended with a cliff-hanger. Audiences are eager to learn the cause of Natasha’s death. They also want to know more about a few questionable areas. But, season 1 is expected to come to an end with episode 9.
It has come to light that the show was originally supposed to be of ten episodes, but due to the restrictions of the pandemic, they could not complete the process of filming. Hence the season has only nine episodes. In the ninth episode, we see Tony Stark and Gamora uniting, and that is an interesting catch for the audience. The next step of them forming a team has been kept on hold for the viewers for the second season.
Moreover, ending with a clip-hanger has always worked for Netflix, and when the Marvel name is attached, it is expected to build more suspense and thrill in the audience, which will boost their viewership.
What Are The Chances For A Second Season?
The show has been renewed for a second season officially. In December 2019, one of the executive producers revealed that the first season would have ten episodes, but the season was concluded with nine episodes due to the pandemic.
By the time they could resume the filming, they started with the second season, as it was considered beneficial. The second season was also supposed to have ten episodes, but Netflix did not want to break the pattern and decided that season two would also be having nine episodes.
The second season is expected to hit the screens in early 2022. The producers have revealed that it takes time to create animated movies or series, but they got approval for the second season at an early stage. Hence they will be presenting it to the audience soon.
