Wondering when WandaVision episode 3 is released? We've got the WandaVision release schedule right here, including everything you need to know about episode 3. The new Marvel Disney Plus series kicked off Jan. 15 with a two-episode premiere and is airing weekly.
WandaVision centers on star-crossed Avengers couple Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and the android/AI hybrid Vision (Paul Bettany). They're somehow living the ideal suburban life as seen in classic sitcoms, but as they enter new decades, the couple begins to realize that something isn't right.

So far, WandaVision seems to be a show-within-a-show that is some kind of experiment or plot put on by the organization S.W.O.R.D. (more on that below). The first two episodes depicted the former Avengers in a typical sitcom, first in the 1950s and then in the '60s. But cracks keep forming in this surreal existence that reveal its true nature.
The second episode ended with Wanda suddenly becoming pregnant and their black-and-white surroundings transforming into color. Honey, I think we're heading into the '70s and Brady Bunch territory!
Here's everything you need to know about how and when to watch WandaVision episode 3.

WandaVision episode recaps
WandaVision episode 1: "Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience
Wanda and Vision move to the town of Westview in the '50s (the tone is very Dick Van Dyke Show). They meet a nosy neighbor (Kathryn Hahn) and deal with a last-minute, important dinner with the boss. But during that dinner, things go awry when the couple can't answer basic questions about their lives before moving to town. When the boss chokes on his food, Wanda commands Vision to save him. Then, everything returns to normal.
After the "credits" roll on the show-within-a-show, we see that it's been playing on a monitor with the logo for S.W.O.R.D. Comic readers will know that as the Sentient World Observation and Response Department, which monitors alien activity.
WandaVision episode 2: "Don't Touch That Dial
Wanda and Vision are now in the '60s (a la Bewitched) and performing in the neighborhood magic show. Vision gets "drunk" after swallowing a piece of gum that tangles up his inner mechanical parts. At the magic show, he accidentally reveals his abilities, but Wanda covers them up using her own powers. At home, they see a strange beekeeper appear out of a manhole on the street. Wanda says "no" and time rewinds. Wanda is suddenly pregnant and everything turns from black and white to color.
