Disney+ is closing 2020 on a high note with “WandaVision,” the upcoming superhero miniseries slated for a December launch on the popular streaming service.

The show stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, who reprise their MCU film roles as Wanda “Scarlet Witch” Maximoff and the android Vision, respectively. Details about the upcoming series' plot are thin and the brief; “WandaVision” scenes Disney teased in its Super Bowl trailer in February only added to the confusion. The trippy teaser showed the duo living seemingly suburban lives, donning a variety of both domesticated and decidedly surreal outfits, and featured scenes in both black-and-white and color.

Marvel has billed the series as a blend of classic sitcoms and a more traditional Marvel Cinematic Universe project, though its protagonists will begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. So, expect the unexpected.

“WandaVision” will premiere several months after “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” hits Disney+. The streaming service is billing itself as the primary home for future MCU television projects, including “Loki” and “Hawkeye,” which are expected to premiere in 2021.

In the meantime, here's everything you need to know about “WandaVision:”

Wanda “Scarlet Witch” Maximoff Elizabeth Olsen

Elizabeth Olsen is back as Wanda, one of the MCU's most powerful characters. Much of Wanda's MCU arc has revolved around her getting a firmer grip on her immense powers while developing a romantic relationship with Vision. Wanda was killed and subsequently revived in the last two “Avengers” films, and though it's unclear how she reunites with Vision, her array of superpowers should provide plenty of fodder for fan theories.

Vision Paul Bettany

Vision lost his Infinity Stone and life in “Avengers: Infinity War,” and was one of the few protagonists to not be revived in “Avengers: Endgame.” He's clearly alive and persumably well in “WandaVision” but it's still unknown how he will be resurrected and if he'll retain his immense powers. Though the character is known for his near-invulnurability, and abilities to fly and shoot lasers, he seems to be living a fairly domesticated life in “WandaVision.”

Jimmy Woo Randall Park

Randall Park is back as Jimmy Woo, an FBI agent who wanted to hang out with and arrest, but mostly hang out with Ant-Man in 2018's “Ant-Man and the Wasp.” That's about all there is to say about his character's contributions to the franchise thus far, but Park's move from Marvel film to television gives credence to theories that Disney wants to make its Disney+ MCU shows more connected to the films they are based on. There have been a variety of MCU television shows on platforms such as Netflix, ABC, and Hulu, but MCU characters rarely crossed over between film and television. With Park among others back in the mix on Disney+, that strategy seems to be a thing of the past.

Darcy Lewis Kat Dennings

Speaking of old MCU characters: Darcy Lewis. Kat Dennings' MCU character appeared in the first two “Thor” movies and was mostly played off as comic relief. There's no word on how Darcy will factor into the plot of “WandaVision,” but with her history with Thor she's no stranger to the franchise's more surreal elements, making her an understandable fit for the series.

Monica Rambeau Teyonah Parris

Rounding out the miniseries' film-to-TV crossover characters is Monica Rambeau. Teyonah Parris portrays an older version of the character who first appeared in “Captain Marvel.” The character never met Wanda or Vision in the MCU films and only time will tell how their paths cross in the upcoming series.

A Nosy Neighbor Kathryn Hahn

Kathryn Hahn will play a nosy neighbor in “WandaVision.” That is currently the only information available about her character in the upcoming series. Anything is possible in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Jac Schaeffer showrunner, writer, and executive producer

Jac Schaeffer has co-writing credits on “Captain Marvel” and the upcoming “Black Widow.” Now, she's making her television debut as showrunner, screenwriter, and executive producer of “WandaVision.” Schaeffer has expressed an interest in superhero projects that don't focus on violence and the surreal aspects of “WandaVision” could be her opportunity to inject new life into Marvel's time-tested formula.
