WandaVision's Agatha Spin-off Recruits Familiar MCU Talent

WandaVision was the most-watched show on Disney+. This certainly isn’t any surprise. The series garnered conversation across the fan base on a weekly basis, which led to endless speculation and discussion. As popular as the show was, it was still quite the surprise when Marvel Studios announced that they’d be developing Agatha: House of Harkness as a spin-off project.

Sure, most fans absolutely adored Kathryn Hahn’s villain—but it’s fair to say no one thought she’d be getting her own project. Especially before Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch even got hers; though Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is close.

Details on the upcoming Disney+ show haven’t been revealed just yet, with the studio having remained fairly silent on that front. Now, however, some familiar names have been discovered to be boarding the series as writers.

Agatha: House of Harkness Gets More Writers

Thanks to Reddit user u/RAMcGonagall, new writers for the upcoming Disney+ series Agatha: House of Harkness have been revealed.

It seems that several of the talented storytellers behind WandaVision and Moon Knight will be boarding the spin-off alongside the previously announced head writer, Jac Schaeffer, who also led the Elizabeth Olsen-starring Disney+ project.

The first is Peter Cameron, who wrote WandaVision episodes ‘On a Very Special Episode…’ and ‘All-New Halloween Spooktacular, as well as Moon Knight’s ‘The Friendly Type’ and ‘The Tomb’.

The second is Cameron Squires, who wrote the ‘Breaking the Fourth Wall’ installment of the Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany series.

Finally, there’s Laura Donney, the writer of ‘Previously On,’ the eighth episode of WandaVision.

It was also noted that Agatha: House of Harkness is being created for the 2023-2024 TV season, with its genre being labeled as comedy.

What Will Agatha Actually Be About?

The first observation to make is how these writers all seem to be from some of the most praised installments of Phase 4 so far. That’s clearly a good sign, and hopefully, it translates into something great.

A big question remains, however: what is the show going to be about? One would have to assume Agatha will be getting out of her Westview imprisonment at the very least.

With everything that happened in Multiverse of Madness, maybe Wanda will seek out Agatha—either to mentor her for some reason or try to take out her guilt on her.

The series would also be a great chance for Marvel Studios to truly explore the various types of magic found in the MCU, but only time will tell.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now playing in theaters worldwide.
