With the canon series venturing into an alternate reality that will focus on another beloved character, expect more astral projections and spells in the upcoming run of the show.

The trailer is titled "The Lost Books" and it shows Stephen Strange somewhat fall down the rabbit hole where a sorcerer was waiting for him, some sorcerer Cagliostro has brought him there under one of the legends of breaking an absolute point in time. The sorcerer seems to be confusing Strange telling him he could find Cagliostro here, there, or anywhere, sending some cryptic message.


The sorcerer finally opened a door that leads to what looks like a cherry blossom tree where the lost books are located. The episode will have the title of What If... Doctor Strange Lost His Heart Instead of His Hands? and it will focus on him losing the love of his life, Christine Palmer, that instead of being alone in the accident, she was there and she was the casualty.

However, in this reality, he would be losing the only person he loved, Christine, in the car crash that would take her life.
