AGATHA Star Kathryn Hahn Says “People Are Going To Be Surprised” By WANDAVISION Spin-Off

Though some details have leaked over the past few months, Marvel Studios’ upcoming WandaVision spin-off, Agatha: TBC, is still mostly shrouded in mystery, and star Kathryn Hahn suggested that viewers will not be expecting some of the show’s twists and turns during a recent interview.

Hahn was asked if she could share any updates on the series on the red carped of Saturday’s SAG Awards.

“I wish I could tell you anything. I can tell you that it’s pretty fan– fabulous, I’m going to say that,” Hahn said. “I was going to say fantastic, but then I decided to go with fabulous.”

“It’s an amazing cast. I’m in awe of everyone’s work in this show and I think people are going to be surprised,” she added. “I don’t — I think they’re gonna think it’s one way and, of course, it’s gonna go a million different avenues kinda like WandaVision.”

It’s fitting that a series with so many secrets still doesn’t have an official title. When it was first announced, the project was known as Agatha: House of Harkness. This was later changed to Agatha: Coven of Chaos, and more recently, Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.

Last we heard, it was actually going to be titled Agatha All Along, though this still hasn’t been made official.

Marvel recently debuted the first footage from the show via a behind-the-scenes featurette, but we may see a full teaser trailer if and when this final title is announced.

The video spotlighted Hahn as the returning sorceress, who was sporting some new duds which look like they might be inspired by her later comic book appearances. We also saw supporting cast members Ali Ahn, Patti LuPone, Sasheer Zamata, Aubrey Plaza, and Joe Locke, who is believed to be playing Wiccan.

The footage appeared to confirm a previously leaked plot detail that Agatha and her allies will embark on a journey down the Witches Road, which is a mystical plane of existence that only sorcerers are able to tread.

Darkhold Diaries Agatha All Long will focus on powerful witch Agatha Harkness, who almost managed to defeat the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) in the season finale of WandaVision before being bested and trapped in Westview in her “nosy neighbour Agnes” persona. Though Olsen is not expected to appear, there’s speculation that Wanda might have something to do with Harkness’ release and/or reformation following the events of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Jac Schaeffer, who is under a joint overall deal with Marvel and 20th Television, will serve as writer and executive producer and will also helm multiple episodes along with Gandja Monteiro (Wednesday; The Chi) and Rachel Goldberg (Cloak & Dagger; Mayans M.C.)

“In the first episode, we see Agatha finally break out of a spell she has been trapped in,” reads a recently released synopsis. “She can’t wait to go back to her old murderous ways only to find that she is powerless. The only way forward for her is to embark on a perilous quest to get her powers back with the help of an unlikely friend or two.”

The show was originally supposed to premiere last year, but was pushed to October 2024 due to the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes.
