WandaVision introduced fans to a new world within the ever-expansive Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Westview brought the likes of Billy and Tommy Maximoff, Monica Rambeau, and the polarizing Ralph Bohner to life. When Elizabeth Olsen's Wanda Maximoff ended the Hex around her fantasy land, it freed the thousands of people she had under a spell. All citizens of Westview resumed their 21st century lives, with one wicked exception.
Wanda kept Kathryn Hahn's Agatha Harkness under a mind-control trance, effectively leaving her adversary as a prisoner in Westview for the rest of her days. What this means for her MCU future is anyone's guess, but answers are coming.
Agatha Harkness Spin-Off Series Confirmed
Who's been messing up everything?
Marvel Studios officially announced the long-rumored Agatha Harkness spin-off series at Disney Plus Day, titled Agatha: House of Harkness. Aside from a "coming soon" tease, no further details are known at this time.
An Agatha spin-off has been rumored since last month, with WandaVision head writer Jac Schaeffer reported to write and executive produce the series. Schaeffer's involvement has yet to be confirmed.

The MCU's Return to Westview
House of Harkness will likely pick up where Agatha left off; as a mental prisoner in Wanda's quaint town, but this series has limitless exploration potential. Agatha Harkness has been alive for centuries, with her history dating back to the Salem Witch Trials. The subtitle House of Harkness implies her lineage will play a big role in this series, which allows for flashbacks galore.
On the other hand, House of Harkness pays homage to the most famous Scarlet Witch comic storyline ever composed. Elements of House of M were teased in WandaVision, and will likely be further explored in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but Agatha's spin-off series could adapt some of the run's themes for the small screen.
Placing a traditionally evil character in the center stage is not new territory for Marvel Studios. This summer's Loki series plucked the most sadistic version of Tom Hiddleston's trickster god out of 2012's The Avengers and sent him on an anti-hero's journey, culminating in a fairly full-circle redemption arc. If history repeats itself, Agatha could be in for a similar turn to the light side.
Agatha: House of Harkness is currently in development.
