Marvel Studios and Disney+ upcoming series Agatha: Coven of Chaos is adding Aubrey Plaza into their cast along with the show’s main star, Kathryn Hahn. The spinoff to WandaVision will see Hahn reprise the role of Agatha Harkness, one of the main characters in the original series.
The plot for the spinoff remains a mystery, including Plaza’s role. Interestingly, Hahn and Plaza will reunite in the upcoming Marvel show after they co-starred in NBC’s Parks and Recreation. At the moment, Aubrey Plaza stars in HBO’s The White Lotus and FXX’s Little Demon. Her other notable shows include Legion, Dirty Grandpa, Ingrid Goes West, and Emily the Criminal.
What We Know So Far About Agatha: Coven Of Chaos
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.
Agatha Harkness is a powerful witch who survived the Salem Witch Trials and is equally as powerful and dangerous as Scarlet Witch. Her history with the Darkhold amplifies her powers as it corrupts her mind.
Fans Rejoice Over Aubrey Plaza’s Casting
The first-ever Marvel show under Disney+ was a successful start to a long roster of television series. WandaVision earned several Emmy nominations, including Hahn as best supporting actress and best original song Agatha All Along.
Fans are happy with the casting of Aubrey Plaza, and many agreed that she will make a great addition to the MCU family. Check out their reactions below:
That's how you make people watch a show that they think is pointless. Brilliant casting. Absolute win from marvel.

Aubrey Plaza is the reason i started obsessing over CBM/Marvel content. She was excellent in Legion and is gonna be a huge scene-stealer in Agatha.
What a time to be alive ✨

Joe Locke of the hit Netflix series Heartstopper will also star opposite Hahn. His role is kept confidential, but sources say he will play a gay teen character with a dark sense of humor.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos is expected to arrive in Disney+ next year.
