Marvel’s WandaVision spin-off starring Kathryn Hahn is reportedly in development at the Disney+ from Marvel Studios. Hahn would be reprising her role of Agatha Harkness in the series, which is described as a dark comedy, though exact plot details remain under wraps.
According to Variety, WandaVision head writer Jac Schaeffer will serve as the writer and executive producer of the underdevelopment project. The spin-off will be the first project Schaeffer has set up with Marvel since she signed an overall deal with them in May.
Hahn started out playing the role of Agnes, Wanda and Vision’s nosy neighbor before it was revealed she was in fact Agatha, a powerful witch. In the Marvel comics and the series, Agatha is shown to have survived the Salem Witch Trials and is more than a match for Wanda, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch. In the finale of WandaVision, Wanda traps Agatha in Westview by using her powers to force her to revert to her Agnes persona.
WandaVision was aired earlier this year from January-March marking the first live-action Marvel series to debut on Disney+ which met with widespread acclaim upon its debut. It also racked up 23 Emmy nominations.
Variety also reported that Hahn will star in a limited series in development at Showtime centered on iconic comedian Joan Rivers.
On the work front, Kathryn Hahn’s upcoming projects include the Apple series The Shrink Next Door and the Rian Johnson feature Knives Out 2. Along with WandaVision, she previously earned an Emmy nomination for her time on Amazon’s Transparent.
Schaeffer is also known for writing, directing, and producing the feature “TiMER” and also wrote the animated short “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” and the feature “The Hustle” starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. She also worked on the story for the Marvel feature “Black Widow.”
