While many wondered why WandaVision was getting a spinoff series focused on Kathryn Hahn‘s Agatha Harkness, recent news reports have showcased that there’s a lot more potential at play here. Agatha: Coven of Chaos just recently cast Aubrey Plaza in a villainous role and there are rumors floating on what may be the inspiration behind this series’ storyline. Now, Illuminerdi may have shared a few more details on the project.
According to their latest report, the series will be a limited series running for nine episodes. There’s no word if that means it’ll be a half-hour show or Marvel Studios’ first time tackling a nine-episode drama. They also shared that Jac Schaeffer and Gandja Monteiro may direct at least one episode each.
The project is definitely shaping up to be an interesting addition, and it’s been fun to see Marvel Studios use smaller characters to tell unique stories. It also gives them the opportunity to tell stories that otherwise wouldn’t get a chance to tell due to previous character decisions, such as how Armor Wars is now a War Machine-focused story rather than Tony Stark.
Marvel Studios has years of stories they can tell in interesting ways. We now live in a timeline where Werewolf by Night got his own special exploring a new corner of this universe we may have not expected otherwise. Who knows what other characters might get an adaptation in the near future that we may not have expected?
