The series blends classic television with Wanda and Vision’s home life, which seems to dance around across different decades. Many scenes display 1950s or 1960s style scenes reminiscent of Bewitched or I Love Lucy — if you have superpowers, you can overrule the 1950s TV censors and push a married couple’s twin beds together, apparently.

In September, an earlier trailer introduced the sitcom-style theme, and was partially shot in black and white. Fitting right in with the dance-through-the-decades theme is Debra Jo Rupp, who played Eric Forman’s mom on That 70s Show, showing up as a nosy new neighbor.
WandaVision has been delayed by the coronavirus, and is now set to premiere on Jan. 15, 2021 on Disney Plus.
