Everybody loves Wong, and MCU Phase Four proved to be a celebration of his existence in the franchise. Wong appeared in various titles such as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
With being one of the most featured characters in the MCU, there's even a running joke that the franchise is now the Wong Cinematic Universe.

Wong made his debut in the Marvel Comics in 1963 on Strange Tales #110 where everyone is introduced to one of the most powerful sorcerers in the lore. Wong has the skills, intelligence, courage, trustworthiness, compassion, and loyalty, similar to that of the rabbit in the lunar calendar.
While there is still no confirmation when Wong will return to the MCU, fans are already calling for his own series, probably in the spinoff Strange Academy, and he will reportedly appear in Agatha: Coven of Chaos as per @MCUSource, but knowing Wong, he shows up anytime he likes. Anyway, he's always one portal away from everyone.
