This week WandaVison star Kathryn Hahn revealed that filming will soon be underway for the Disney+ original show Agatha: Coven of Chaos.
In an interview with Brooke Geir McDonald at the 2022 Chicago International Film Festival, Hanh stated production will “start shooting in about a month.” Agatha: Coven of Chaos is a spinoff of WandaVision that will show what Agatha Harkness has been up to since her failure to defeat the Scarlet Witch. We last saw Agatha, a witch and dark magic user, trapped inside Westview with no recollection of her face-off with Wanda.
Hahn conveyed her excitement to play the beloved villain. “Nothing I could have ever dreamed of was to be asked to play a centuries old witch that no one had ever heard of and then all of a sudden cut to a spinoff show. Which is just like what! So it’s very, very exciting.”
Agatha: Coven of Chaos will premiere in winter of 2023. Executive producers Jac Schaeffer and Kevin Feige first announced the series in November of 2021 under the title Agatha: House of Harkness. Feige later confirmed the 2023 premiere and title change to Agatha: Coven of Chaos at the 2022 San Diego Comic Con. This will be the eighth project of Phase Five in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
So far the only confirmed roles are Kathryn Hahn as Agatha Harkness and Emma Caulfield Ford as Dottie from WandaVision. Agatha released Dottie, Wanda’s neighbor and head of the Westview planning committee, from the Scarlet Witch’s citywide spell. This restored Dottie’s true identity as Sarah Proctor. The alias Ford’s character will assume is unknown. It is rumored that other heroes could show up in the series, though no character details have been confirmed.
Who else could join Agatha and her journey into further chaos? We look forward to catching up with the dark witch and her magical schemes soon.
