Marvel’s WandaVision Spinoff in Works

Disney+ is reportedly developing a WandaVision spin-off series from Marvel Studios starring Kathryn Hahn with her role as Agatha Harkness. 

WandaVision’s head writer, Jac Schaeffer, will be both writer and executive producer for this untitled series. The spin-off is described by the outlet as a “dark comedy”. However, any additional plot details are being kept away from the eyes of the public. 

WandaVision is “a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany), two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems,” according to the official synopsis. The series first premiered on January 15, 2021, and is available to stream on Disney+; additionally featuring Kat Dennings, Randall Park, and Teyonah Parris, all nine episodes were directed by Matt Shakman.

WandaVision has drawn the most awards (23 Emmy nominations with three wins, including Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes, Outstanding Original Music, Lyrics for the song “Agatha All Along,” and Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program (Half-Hour)) of any of Marvel’s shows to date, and it’s no surprise. The series proved to be the best fit for the weekly episodic format, using a sequence of sitcom riffs to hint at the true reality behind Westview.

Hahn’s villain, revealed so deep into the series, was absolutely jaw-dropping. The show gave us the Agatha Harkness winking meme. WandaVision ended with Agatha being trapped in Westview, seemingly for good, in her Agnes persona seen earlier in the series. Marvel made the right decision not to kill off such a monumental character in the MCU. 

The spinoff likely won’t debut before sometime in 2022 at the earliest. Until then, there’s Hawkeye, which will premiere on November 24th.
