In WandaVision, it was Agatha all along. And now it really will be all about Agatha Harkness. Kathryn Hahn’s MCU witch will soon star in her own Disney+ Marvel series, Agatha: Coven of Chaos. While we don’t have too many details yet about what this series will entail, we can already tell it will serve up some delightfully magical fun.
Here’s everything we know about Agatha: Coven of Chaos.
Although the first title we heard for Agatha’s MCU series was Agatha: House of Harkness, the series will actually be called Agatha: Coven of Chaos.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos‘ Plot
Marvel Studios has kept plot details for Agatha: Coven of Chaos under wraps. But the last time we got to see Agatha, the witch lost in a fight to Wanda Maximoff. And then Agatha ended up trapped in her Agnes persona.
We imagine the show will reveal to us how Agatha breaks out of the spell she’s under and then follow her along on some exciting shenanigans. The show is called Coven of Chaos, after all. So we imagine we’ll get to meet a number of witches from the pages of Marvel Comics. And we do love a witch.
Whatever helps happens, we hope that Agatha gets yet another catchy jingle to her name. “Agatha All Along” needs a successor.
Behind the Scenes
WandaVison‘s Jac Schaeffer returns as executive producer and head writer on Agatha: Coven of Chaos. Additionally, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Schaeffer, alongside Wednesday‘s Gandja Monteiro and Resident Evil‘s Rachel Goldberg, will direct different episodes of the show.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos‘ Cast
We’ve learned aobut quite a number of potential coven members cast so far. Of course, Kathryn Hahn returns to play the titular MCU witch Agatha Harkness.
Joining her is Emma Caulfield Ford, who will reprise her role as Dottie for the Disney+ show. Dottie was one of the women Wanda trapped in her Westview fantasies. Could Dottie be another secret witch? Only time will tell. Variety also reports Heartstopper‘s Joe Locke has joined the cast in an undisclosed role. However, many fans speculate Locke will play the role of Wiccan, the son of Scarlet Witch and Vision.
Per Deadline, Aubrey Plaza will also star in the series, potentially as a more villainous character on the Agatha series. Ali Ahn, Maria Dizzia, and Sasheer Zamata have also reportedly joined the cast, as has Patti LuPone. LuPone has revealed that she will play the role of Marvel Comics’ Lilia Calderu. Debra Jo Rupp is reportedly in the cast, too. She’ll presumably reprise her role of Mrs. Hart from WandaVision.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos‘ Release Date
For now, Agatha: Coven of Chaos will be a part of the MCU’s phase five. It has a general release date of winter 2023.
