Agatha Harkness Spinoff Reportedly in the Works at Disney+

Who’s working in development over at Disney+? If these reports are any indication, it’s been Agatha all along. Variety reports that the Disney streamer is working on a WandaVision spinoff starring Kathryn Hahn. The actress would, of course, reprise her breakout role as Agatha Harkness. Additionally, it appears a key member of the creative team may be behind the spinoff. Jac Schaeffer would write the series and executive produce, much as she did with WandaVision.

Schaeffer recently signed an overall deal with Marvel Studios and 20th Century, both of which are under the Disney umbrella, so it’s not surprising at all that she’d come back onto an MCU project so soon. And, of course, that it’s centered on the biggest breakout character to come out of MCU’s Disney+ catalog. This would mark Schaeffer’s third MCU project in the last few years, as she also co-wrote the story for Black Widow.

Agatha first appeared on the series as Wanda and Vision’s nosy neighbor in Westview, New Jersey. “Agnes” always appears at the right time to help Wanda, complain about her husband, Ralph, and throw around some period-appropriate slang. But, of course, everything was not as it seemed… in more ways than one. Wanda’s confidant actually wanted to get close to Wanda to get ahold of her powers. In the comics, Agatha isn’t just a cut and dry foe to Wanda. In fact, she’s often a pretty positive presence. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t love her delightfully wicked turn in WandaVision.

When we last saw the iconic witch, she’d faced off against Wanda and wound up trapped in her Agnes persona. With details about the potential spinoff under wraps, we have no official word about what to expect. However, we can imagine a series where Agatha must break out of her Agnes trap. And not to totally get into conspiracy territory, but given Agatha’s comics history, this could make for a great way to introduce one heroic foursome.
