The fan-favorite WandaVision witch Agatha Harkness (played by the inimitable Katherine Hahn), who stole our hearts first as a chirpy sitcom wife before becoming one of Marvel’s first villains with a theme song, is coming back for more: A month after Variety first reported the news, Marvel Studios confirms that an Agatha-focused WandaVision spin-off is in the works. Here’s what we know about Agatha: House of Harkness.
What will it be about?
Variety was only able to eek out a few details from the famously tight-lipped studio, but it would appear the show in development is a dark comedy, centered around Hahn as Harkness, the Salem-era witch who tormented Wanda Maximoff in WandaVision‘s first (and, thus far, only) season. Jac Schaeffer, head writer for WandaVision, would also write and produce this spin-off.
Everything beyond those details is speculation, but it wouldn’t be a leap to assume this spin-off will connect to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. As the first to discover Wanda’s use of chaos magic, Agatha has had a major hand in creating the MCU’s multiverse as we now know it. The last we saw of Agatha, Wanda had reverted the clever witch back to her 1950s-era sitcom form, Agnes, but no one expects Agatha to stay helpless for long. In the WandaVision spin-off, she’ll almost certainly claw her way back to power.
For fans who care less about MCU news than quality television, the WandaVision spin-off is equally splendid news. Hahn has proved herself to be more than deserving of a lead role, and her knack for nailing the nuances of both drama and comedy mean this project is sure to be a treat. As Hahn told ELLE in March 2021, “I love [Agatha] so, so, so madly. I love a witch—love, love, love a witch, so I just couldn’t have imagined a cooler part to play.”
When will it be released?
There’s no word yet on when the show might hit Disney+. So, in the meantime, everyone, please join in our national anthem: “It was Agatha all alooong…”
