Get ready for the new daily show

Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha Harkness getting her own spinoff Disney+ series

October 7th, 2021 by Marc Comments

The best new character from Marvel Phase 4 has just been confirmed as getting her own series!

Yes, magic fan, the wonderful Kathryn Hahn will be back as Agatha Harkness in a standalone series on Disney+ reprising her fun role from WandaVision.

The series is ‘a dark comedy’ but little else is known at the minute,

WandaVision’s head writer Jac Schaeffer will be back on writing duties on the show as well as acting as an executive producer.

In WandaVision, Agatha was introduced as the neighbour of Wanda and Vision before it was revealed that she herself was a witch almost as powerful as Wanda. She was last seen trapped in the town of Westfield where Wanda left her. When Kevin Feige recently said we’d see her again, we didn’t expect to get this news so soon.

We loved her in WandaVision and this is very welcome news and, without that damned virus screwing up filming etc, it’ll be fun to see how good this show can be as WandaVision suffered due to the pandemic.

ould serve as the writer and executive producer on the project. Should the spinoff go forward, it would be the first project Schaeffer has set up with Marvel since she signed an overall deal with them and 20th Television in May.

As with all projects in development, Marvel Studios is staying mum on this one. Reps for Schaeffer and Hahn did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for comment.

Hahn was nominated for an Emmy for her role as Agatha.

Are you excited to see more of Agatha? Let me know your thoughts on this one, gang…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
