On December 11, 2018, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Scott Derrickson would be returning to direct the sequel, with scripting planned to occur throughout 2019 while filming was expected to begin in early 2020 for an expected release in May 2021. Marvel had previously scheduled an upcoming film for release on May 7, 2021.
On July 20, 2019, at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Kevin Feige revealed that the title of the film would be Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and that it was scheduled to hit theaters on May 7, 2021. After Feige revealed the title of the film, Scott Derrickson stated "If I'm gonna do it, it has to go into the territory that drew me into the Doctor Strange comics in the first place, which is how they dipped into the gothic and the horror and the horrific, and we're going to make the first scary MCU film." It was also announced that Elizabeth Olsen would be reprising her Marvel Cinematic Universe role of Wanda Maximoff, as the film would connect to the events in the Disney+ series WandaVision.
On October 17, 2019, Collider reported that Marvel Studios had tapped screenwriter Jade Bartlett to write the film.
On January 9, 2020, Variety reported that Scott Derrickson had stepped down as director due to creative differences, but that he would remain on the film as an executive producer, which Derrickson himself affirmed.

On February 7, 2020, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Michael Waldron, head writer and showrunner of Loki, had been tapped to write the film, replacing Jade Bartlett. That same day, C. Robert Cargill clarified that neither he nor Scott Derrickson ever wrote a draft of the screenplay prior to their departure from the film and that Waldron's script would therefore not be derivative of their work.

On January 6, 2021, in an interview during Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Elizabeth Olsen revealed that production on the film had been suspended due to a lockdown that was implemented in England as a way to try to slow the spread of COVID‑19.
