Heartstopper breakout Joe Locke is set to join the cast of Agatha: Coven of Chaos. The news was revealed by Variety, with the outlet reporting that details regarding Locke’s role are being kept under wraps. Locke joins Kathryn Hahn and Emma Caulfield Ford who will reprise their WandaVision roles of Agatha Harkness and Dottie, respectively.
Locke’s casting comes as recent reports suggested an aged-up Billy Kaplan, aka Wiccan, will appear in the series. While it’s unknown whether or not Locke will be playing Billy in the series, Agatha: Coven of Chaos is rumored to be taking elements from The Children’s Crusade, and with a second casting grid hinting at the inclusion of Teddy Altman, it seems entirely possible.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos will mark the second television series Locke has starred in following Netflix’s mega-successful Heartstopper. That series was quickly renewed for Season 2 & 3 shortly after Season 1 was released. In that series, Locke stars as Charlie Spring, a gay teenager who falls in love with a popular classmate; it’s based on the webcomic and graphic novel Alice Oseman.
Coven of Chaos hails from WandaVision creator Jac Schaefer, who serves as the head writer and executive producer.
