Kathryn Hahn‘s Agatha Harkness quickly became one of Phase 4’s most beloved characters despite her villainous role in 2021’s WandaVision. In late 2021, an Agatha-centric spinoff show was announced to be in development by Jac Schaeffer and at SDCC ’22, Kevin Feige revealed plans for that show, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, was slated for a late 2023/early 2024 release. Now it looks like that might not be the case.
According to insider KC Walsh, Agatha: Coven of Chaos may be facing a delay in its release as Marvel Studios slows down its Disney Plus production machine.
Walsh’s information lines up with Version 4 of our Hypothetical 2024 Marvel Studios Release Calender in which we suggested that the series may end up moving “through no fault of its own.” Walsh’s report suggests that the new time for the release of Agatha: Coven of Chaos is to be determined which indicates an indefinite delay in the release of the series.
Despite the delay, there are no concerns about the project being taken off Marvel Studios’ upcoming slate. It looks set to introduce Billy Kaplan, aka Wiccan, to the MCU and given the push towards the Young Avengers assembling in the MCU and Wiccan’s prominent role on the team, the project seems incredibly important.
