WandaVision, the first MCU TV show, was a huge success when it aired earlier this year and received positive responses from both critics and the audience because of its powerful exploration of grief, a terrific character study of Wanda Maximoff, the way it embraced its bonkers tone, and the innovative way of blending sitcoms and the MCU fare.
Since then, the show has received numerous awards and nominations from different prestigious award-giving bodies such as the Primetime Emmy Awards, TCA Awards, Critics Choice Awards, Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards, and many more. Now, it received yet again another prestigious award.
The American Film Institute (AFI) has recently revealed their top 10 TV shows of 2021 in which WandaVision is included on the list. The other nine shows that also made it are Hacks, Maid, Mare of Easttown, Reservation Dogs, Schmigadoon!, Succession, Ted Lasso, The Underground Railroad, and The White Lotus. In addition, Squid Game and the documentary Summer of Soul received Special Awards.
It is impressive to hear that WandaVision made it to AFI's top 10 TV shows of this year since there were hundreds of TV shows that aired throughout the year and it was able to make it to the final ten. What's more impressive is that the final episode of WandaVision aired in early March and yet it still made a long-lasting impression that, by the end of the year, it is being considered by a lot of people as some of the best shows of the year.
Even though the series has ended its run, it will still continue in some way in future MCU projects such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which will be the continuation of Wanda Maximoff's journey and The Marvels where Monica Rambeau will be appearing next. It has also been announced recently that a spinoff series is currently in the works that will focus on Kathryn Hahn's Agatha Harkness.
All episodes of WandaVision are streaming on Disney+.
