Elizabeth Olsen has revealed a few new details about WandaVision, the Vision and Scarlet Witch series that will launch on Disney+. Speaking with Variety, Olsen said that the series will begin shooting this fall and is set in the 1950s.

“There’s quite a few other comic books that we’re pulling from and it’s going to be Wanda and the Vision,” Olsen said of the show. “And I think at the Disney+ launch chat, they showed a photo of us in the ’50s.”

The series will be written, produced and showrun by Jac Schaeffer (Captain Marvel), and is one of four confirmed Marvel Disney+ shows including Falcon & Winter Soldier, Loki, and a Hawkeye series. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said at the launch announcement of Disney+ that the series “will be equally important to the films” in terms of the MCU’s future.

“Paul [Bettany] and I are really excited,” Olsen added. “They have a great group of writers. I think it’s going to be a total of six hours.”

Disney+ launches on November 12th.
