Marvel's Vision-Focused Series Is Coming in 2026

It might have taken a few years, but Marvel's Vision-focused Disney Plus series is coming in 2026 · 

 Paul Bettany will reprise his role as Vision, a synthezoid he played in three Marvel films and WandaVision. Star Trek: Picard EP Terry Matalas has been tapped to serve as showrunner on the new series.

Details of the new series have not been revealed, but the Marvel Vision series had been in development at Disney+ since 2022.

 At the time, the series was said to be centered on The Vision (Bettany) trying to regain his memory and humanity, While the focus is on Vision. There was a possibility for Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) to appear, which would make sense given how interconnected the two characters’ stories are in the MCU.

After Vision died at the hands of Thanos in 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” he returned twice over in 2021’s “WandaVision,” first as a spectral creation by his beloved, Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), through magic powered by grief; then as a rebuilt, nuts-and-bolts android with a ghost white appearance and zero memory of his past life. When the two Visions battled in the “WandaVision” finale, Wanda’s Vision restored the ghost Vision’s memories, then Wanda allowed her Vision to fade from existence. The new show will take place after those events, as ghost Vision presumably explores his new purpose in life.

The Vision series will be the second show to follow from" WandaVision"; the first, "Agatha All Along", starring Kathryn Hahn as Wanda’s Westview neighbor and fellow witch, "Agatha Harkness", is set to premiere in September.

Marvel brought in Matalas after his work running Season 3 of “Star Trek: Picard” — which brought back the cast of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” to widespread acclaim, garnering Matalas a WGA award nomination for the 2023 series finale — greatly impressed the top brass at the studio.

An earlier version of a Vision series had been in development with “WandaVision” creator Jac Schaeffer, but Schaeffer’s attention turned to running a separate “WandaVision” spinoff, “Agatha All Along” with Kathryn Hahn, that is set to premiere in September.

With Matalas coming on board, this will be Marvel’s first new live-action series pickup in almost two years, representing a significant shift in how the company produces television for Disney+. 

Originally, Marvel adopted a features model, hiring head writers to create predetermined (and, often, already announced) shows, but assigning most leadership responsibilities to the directors and creative executives. 

Marvel’s head of streaming, television and animation Brad Winderbaum recently told Variety that, starting in 2022, the company began to shift to a more “traditional approach” to TV, with a lengthier development period and a return to hiring writer-producers to oversee the entire production as showrunners. 

The company is also rebranding its live-action TV output to Marvel Television and reducing the number of shows it makes to roughly two per year, down from as many as four.

In addition to Agatha All Along, Marvel’s upcoming TV series at Disney+ include Daredevil: Born Again and Ironheart, both of which are due next year, along with animated offerings Eyes of Wakanda and Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. Marvel also has Noir, a live-action series starring Nicolas Cage that’s part of the Sony Spider-verse, set up at Amazon’s Prime Video.
