The series has been in the works since October 2021, but Disney only confirmed the show in November. Executive producer Jac Schaefer, who worked in WandaVision, will return for Coven of Chaos. Hahn’s character is remembered as the nosy neighbor of Wanda and Vision, who turned out to be the culprit of all the mysteries happening in Westview.
