One of the biggest pop culture phenomenons of 2021 so far has been Marvel’s slew of Disney+ live-action shows. The run began with the constant twists and turns provided by the Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen-starring series WandaVision. Now, as first reported by Variety, it appears the series standout, Kathryn Hahn, is getting the spinoff treatment in a new project in the works from Marvel Studios.
Per the initial report, Hahn would reprise her role as Agatha Harkness in a series focusing on the character. Additionally, WandaVision head writer Jac Schaeffer would serve as the head writer once again, as well as an executive producer, should the project receive the green light. Moreover, sources close to the project’s development describe the series as a dark comedy with further details scarce at this time.
Hahn’s MCU character, Agatha Harkness is a witch who masquerades as Agnes, Wanda and Vision’s nosy neighbor. Agatha has been studying magic for centuries and is maddened to see it come so naturally to Maximoff. Additionally, the finale of the series revealed that Harkness comes from an ancient coven of witches out of Salem. She also displays the power to harness the abilities of other powerful beings.
In addition to her role as Agatha in Marvel’s WandaVision, Kathryn Hahn appears in the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Moreover, the actress will next continue her relationship with Apple TV in The Shrink Next Door, opposite Will Ferrell, and Paul Rudd after last appearing in the streaming service’s animated musical comedy series Central Park. Additionally, Hahn also touts a critically acclaimed role alongside Mark Ruffalo in HBO’s I Know This Much Is True. Up next, Hahn is among those cast in the ensemble of Rian Johnson’s Knives Out 2.
