News for WandaVision spin-off Agatha: Coven of Chaos continues to trickle in.

Not only do we have a title befitting of Kathryn Hahn's scene-stealing witch, the formidable Agatha Harkness, but we also know some other faces on their way to the new series.

Emma Caulfield will be reprising her WandaVision role as Westview resident Dottie, having previously been the subject of many theories during the original series.

Of course, nothing has been confirmed at this stage about Dottie, and Caulfield was careful not to reveal specifics during an interview with Vanity Fair.

"That is super fun. There’s a couple of things actually. There’s another thing which I also can’t really say," she said.

Does that mean she could be getting her own version of the Emmy-winning tune Agatha All Along?

Meanwhile, Heartstopper star Joe Locke has also been cast in a mysterious role in the series.

Writing on Instagram, Locke penned: "When I found out I got an email which said ‘welcome to the marvel universe’ and I screamed [three purple heart emojis]".

Finally, The White Lotus season 2 star Aubrey Plaza has been cast in a mysterious and antagonistic role, according to Deadline.

Hahn herself spoke to RadioTimes.com about the spin-off, describing it as "a total surprise".

She said: "I mean, you'd have to be a deep diving... comic book aficionado to know Agatha Harkness from the comics. I had never heard of her before. And so the fact that this is happening is just testament to the incredible writing [and] the, you know, weird timing. It's so bananas."

Hahn added: "It's going to be such a great, fun dive into [that world]... It's so meta that WandaVision was a show about sitcoms, and of course, it's going to have a spin-off. It just makes total sense, in a very meta way."

Below is everything we know so far about Agatha: Coven of Chaos.

Agatha: Coven of Chaos release date speculation

Agatha: Coven of Chaos will be released on Disney Plus in winter 2023/2024.

This release period was confirmed by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige at the San Diego Comic-Con 2022.

The title of the series was also confirmed to have been changed from the previously announced Agatha: House of Harkness.

Agatha: Coven of Chaos cast

The following cast members have been confirmed for Agatha: Coven of Chaos.

  • Kathryn Hahn as Agatha Harkness
  • Emma Caulfield as Dottie
  • Joe Locke as TBC
  • Aubrey Plaza as TBC

Kathryn Hahn will reprise her role as the mischievous witch Agatha Harkness after making her MCU debut in WandaVision.

The character was last seen being placed under a spell and returning to her nosey neighbour guise as Agnes by the Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen).

For this reason, it is possible that Wanda could make a return appearance in this series.

However, we will have to see how she could return, following her fate in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Elsewhere, WandaVision supporting character Dottie will also be back, played once again by Emma Caulfield.

Meanwhile, Heartstopper actor Joe Locke has joined the cast in a mysterious character that has yet to be confirmed.

Fans are already speculating that Locke will be portraying the Marvel Comcis character Wiccan aka Billy Maximoff, the son of Wanda who was created through magic.

Will we be seeing an older Billy?

Additionally, Aubrey Plaza has been cast in a villainous role, so will she be another witch to face off with Agatha?

Agatha is traditionally not a heroine in her own right so doesn't have the largest rogue's gallery, but there are a host of magical ladies in Marvel who she could be playing.

Finally, we could see the addition of further magical characters from Marvel Comics, including Agatha's evil son Nicholas Scratch and his children, Salem's Seven.

Is there a trailer for Agatha: Coven of Chaos?

No, there is currently no trailer for Agatha: Coven of Chaos.

The series is yet to start filming. We will update this page as soon as this becomes available.

In the meantime, here is the clip for Agatha All Along...

Agatha: Coven of Chaos plot speculation

The series Agatha: Coven of Chaos will likely pick up after the events of WandaVision and when Agatha was left enchanted.

However, the series could also flashback and show us Agatha's origins following the flashbacks shown in WandaVision where Agatha stopped herself from being burned at the stake for practising dark magic by her mother Evanora Harkness and their coven in Salem, 1693.

Could Agatha's past actions come back to haunt her?

The previous title of House of Harkness suggested that perhaps Agatha's family plays a role in the story. Could we see more from Evanora, played by Kate Forbes?

It's likely that the series will also introduce Agatha's son, the sorcerer and supervillain Nicholas Scratch, with whom she shares a fractious relationship and who has tried to kill her in the past.

Additionally, Scratch's seven children - thus Agatha's grandchildren - are supervillains named Brutacus, Gazelle, Hydron, Reptilla, Thornn, Vakume, and Vertigo. Together they form the shapeshifting sorcerer team known as Salem's Seven.
