Fans officially have their first look into the MCU's upcoming Disney+ series Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.

While not quite a Season 2 for Marvel's first Disney+-original venture, Kathryn Hahn's series featuring her titular Agatha Harkness will bring fans back into the world of witches, Westview, and WandaVision television magic.

The series has, as of now, gone through three different titles and even more release windows, finally settling on a September 19, 2024 release for the time being.

Agatha Returns after WandaVision

Marvel, via images from the official WandaVision Blu-ray collection as shared by X/Twitter user ScarletWitchUpd, has given fans the first official peek into the WandaVision spin-off, Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.

Despite being left as her Westview persona Agnes at the end of WandaVision, Kathryn Hahn's Agatha Harkness appears in one image to be wearing a pendant, and sporting a look more befitting her true identity. However, the suburban background behind her could very well still be Westview, where she was left prisoner.

This is further shown in this image, with Agatha in all her cackling glory. The smile is reminiscent of her look right at the camera near the end of WandaVision's "Agatha All Along" song — a look that could shatter a soul in false niceties.

Broadway performer Patti LuPone will make her MCU debut in Agatha: Darkhold Diaries, playing the witch Lilia Calderu. Here, she appears surrounded by magical-seeming items and artifacts. She certainly looks the part too, with the gray, curly hair, blue jacket with sun and star decorations, and a necklace with an engraved charm.

A group of people, primarily women, are shown here walking through a forest. The end of WandaVision saw witchy rituals occurring within a similar-looking forest.

When Could Agatha's New Show Release?

In the wake of Marvel fatigue partially leading to lower-than-expected box office performances, and the writers' and actors' strikes delaying production, it is entirely possible that the series could be pushed back even further than its current September 19, 2024 date like many MCU movies have been.

Looking to the closer future, Echo's January release may offer some insight into when fans could expect to finally see Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.

It could theoretically show if the relatively positive reception to Loki following the release of its second season was a fluke amid more heavily disliked projects, or if the Disney+ line-up can still hold its own.

However, despite the in-production Daredevil: Born Again seeing major changes following the strikes, these images indicate that this will likely not be the case, at least to the same extent, for Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.

Agatha: Darkhold Diaries will hit Disney+ in Fall of 2024.
