It was Agatha all along.
Those going through withdrawal following the finale of Disney+’s WandaVision will be pleased to know that a spinoff series is currently in the works — and it's all about the witch you love to hate.
According to Variety, Kathryn Hahn will reprise her role as Agatha Harkness in what has been described by sources as a dark comedy. Though the publication reports that Marvel Studios is staying tight-lipped on details, Jac Schaeffer (who served as the head writer of WandaVision) has been chosen to oversee the series as its head writer and executive producer.
WandaVision — which saw Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettanny reprise their Marvel Cinematic Universe characters, Wanda and Vision, respectively — quickly became a not-to-be-missed show as soon as it dropped in the beginning of this year. The limited series — the first one by Marvel Studio to debut on Disney+, followed by The Falcon & Winter Soldier and Loki — garnered 23 Emmy nominations.
Though Olsen and Bettanny were the stars of WandaVision, audiences couldn't help but be enamored by Hahn's captivating performance as the nosy neighbor-turned-wicked witch. (The fan favorite was also nominated for her first Emmy in the Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie category, however, Mare of Easttown's Julianne Nicholson snagged the win.)
Known for her comedic chops in films such as Bad Moms and Step-Brothers, it's not hard to believe that portraying a villain is a departure for Hahn, which she touched on during an interview with The New Yorker in March. “There was definitely a sense of total freedom with this part. I felt a real surrender in just taking the big swing of it, which was so, so fun," the Mrs. Fletcher star told the outlet at the time. "When I was pitched this story, I was so taken by the ambition of it. And the serialism and the sadness and the all of it."
