Ina recent update, Disney Plus informed about the upcoming series which will star Kathryn Hahn. The actress will resume the role of Agatha Harkness. The series will be a spin off for Wanda Vision.
Agatha Harkness will be a dark comedy, details are yet to surface. Wanda Vision starring Elizabeth Olsen received splendid response from the audience. The makers are here with a spin off with Kathryn Hahn who also starred in Wanda Vision.
Reportedly, “WandaVision” head writer Jac Schaeffer would serve as the writer and executive producer on the project. It would be the first project Schaeffer has set up with Marvel since she signed an overall deal with them.
In “WandaVision,” Hahn started out playing the role of Agnes, Wanda and Vision’s nosy neighbor. However later it was revealed she was in fact Agatha, a powerful witch. Moreover, in the Marvel comics, Agatha is shown to have survived the Salem Witch Trials and is more than a match for Wanda, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch. Viewers last saw her in the finale of “WandaVision. Wanda traps Agatha in Westview by using her powers to force her revert to her Agnes persona.
Hahn’s other upcoming projects include the Apple series “The Shrink Next Door” and the Rian Johnson feature “Knives Out 2.” Along with “WandaVision,” she previously earned an Emmy nomination for her time on Amazon’s “Transparent.”
She is repped by Lighthouse Management & Media, Gersh, Schreck Rose, and Narrative.
