We can search questions just like that, and I will say, just as the first season is drawing into films and storylines from the MCU that you’ve witnessed up to this point, What If Season 2 will surely include movies from Phase Four.”
It is also likely that the fans will see more of Peggy Carter/Captain Carter in future episodes. She is set to become a prominent character in the animated series.
