Agatha: Coven of Chaos

Fresh off recent releases like “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” — slated for release next week — phases 4, 5, and 6 of the MCU are set to roll out shortly on Disney+. Among the plethora of new releases is “Agatha: Coven of Chaos,” a spin-off of the popular series “WandaVision.” This show will delve into the story of Agatha Harkness, the witch who posed as Wanda Maximoff’s nosy neighbor, Agnes, and became obsessed with harnessing “chaos magic” from the Scarlet Witch herself.

Comedian Kathryn Hahn will reprise her beloved role as Agatha in the series. In a Disney+ press release prior to the release of “WandaVision” in 2021, Kathryn expressed her excitement about reprising her role and delving deeper into the Marvel universe.

As for the release date of “Agatha: Coven of Chaos,” there’s no official confirmation yet, but according to Variety, it’s expected to hit Disney+ sometime in 2024 due to production delays caused by the ongoing Writers Guild of America’s strike. Production has indeed begun, as confirmed by various sources and sightings from the set.

In terms of casting, Kathryn Hahn will be joined by several other MCU actors, including Emma Caulfield Ford reprising her role as Dottie from “WandaVision” and Debra Jo Rupp returning as Mrs. Hart. Broadway legend Patti LuPone, Heartstopper star Joe Locke, and Saturday Night Live alumna Sasheer Zamata are also set to join the cast, among others.

The exact plot of “Agatha: Coven of Chaos” remains largely under wraps, although hints from industry sources suggest it will explore Agatha’s backstory and her interactions with other Marvel characters. A synopsis from the Film & TV Industry Alliance database suggests that the series will delve into Agatha’s role as a powerful witch, including her tutelage of Wanda Maximoff, also known as the Scarlet Witch.

As Marvel fans eagerly anticipate the release of “Agatha: Coven of Chaos,” speculation runs rampant about the twists and turns that await viewers in this latest addition to the expanding MCU universe.
