It’s still Agatha! Everyone’s favorite witch is reportedly getting her own series on Disney+. The news was reported by Variety.
While no details about the series are known, it was reported that Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha Harkness is gearing up to bewitch us in a series all her own. Should the series go forward, Hahn will return to reprise her role. Jac Schaeffer, head writer of WandaVision, will pen the script as well as executive produce. Schaeffer recently signed a long-term deal with Disney and 20th Century following the success of WandaVision, which nabbed Marvel its first-ever Emmy awards.
Marvel has not confirmed the series, but official word could come next month on Disney+ Day, which will take place on Friday, November 12.
Disney+ Day is “a global celebration that will come to life across all dimensions of the Company. Subscribers to Disney+ will be treated to new content releases across the service’s iconic brands, Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and Star in international markets, along with a special presentation on Disney+ for fans with sneak peeks into what’s to come.”
So what could an Agatha Harkness series look like? Likely a dive into her past. From the comics and the series, we know that Agatha has been around since before the Salem Witch Trials. In all likelihood, we’ll see her ascent to the massive power that allowed her to decimate her entire coven when they tried to kill her and beyond as she learned the mastery of the Dark Arts we got a taste of in WandaVision‘s final two episodes. However, depending on the timing and fate of Wanda Maximoff in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, perhaps it will focus on that mentor-mentee relationship Agatha and Wanda share in the comics.
Hopefully, it comes with another catchy jingle too …
