Variety broke the story this morning that a “WandaVision” spinoff starring Kathryn Hahn who played Agatha Harnkness in the show is currently in development at Disney Plus from Marvel Studios.
The show would have Hahn reprise role from Wanda Vision. Sources told Variety the show is described as a dark comedy, though exact plot details remain under wraps.
“WandaVision” head writer Jac Schaeffer woud be brought on as the writer for the project as well as Executive Producer. Should the show be green-lighted it would be the first project Schaeffer has been involved with for Marvel since she signed an overall deal with them and 20th Television in May.
As with all projects in development, Marvel Studios is staying quiet on this project. It is in the incredibly early stages of consideration.
For her role in Wanda Vision, Hahn started out playing the role of Agnes. She was Wanda and Vision’s nosy neighbor. It was later established that Agnes was, in fact, Agatha Harkness.
Harkness, in the comic series, was a witch who survived the Salem Witch Trials and is more than a match for Wanda, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch. When 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.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
