It's been a long time coming, but Kathryn Hahn has revealed that we're not too far away from seeing Agatha: Darkhold Diaries!


The Disney Plus series, which was renamed from Agatha: Coven of Chaos last year, will follow Hahn's WandaVision villain Agatha Harkness in her own spin-off.

Sharing an update at the Emmys, Hahn told The Hollywood Reporter: "We just have a few more days to pick up but we've got most of it done. Very exciting!"

Asked how eager she is for Marvel fans to see it, she responded: "Marvel fans and anyone who loves a witch! I can't wait for people to see it. I can't wait for people to see it!"

Hahn previously spoke to 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."

Agatha: Darkhold Diaries release date speculation

We could expect to see Agatha: Darkhold Diaries in late 2024 - however, a specific release date has not been confirmed.

A winter 2023/2024 release period was previously confirmed by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige at the San Diego Comic-Con 2022. Since then, we've had the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, so everything has been pushed back a little bit.

However, if filming is nearly finished and post-production doesn't take too long, hopefully we won't have too much longer to wait.

Agatha: Darkhold Diaries cast

The following cast members have been confirmed for Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.

  • Kathryn Hahn as Agatha Harkness
  • Emma Caulfield as Dottie
  • Patti LuPone as Lilia Calderu
  • Joe Locke as TBC
  • Aubrey Plaza as TBC
  • Ali Ahn as TBC
  • Maria Dizzia 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 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, Patti LuPone will portray a 450-year-old Sicilian witch, with Aubrey Plaza, Kathryn Hahn and Joe Locke in her coven.

"It's a coven of witches, and I play Lilia Calderu, who apparently is in the Marvel world. I researched her, she's hot, she's really hot, she's got a great body and hair," LuPone said when asked about the show.

"I didn't know there were witches, I didn't know anything about the Marvel world. There are witches in the Marvel world.

"So, we are a coven of witches and the witches are: Kathryn Hahn, Aubrey Plaza, and [a] Familiar — if anybody knows Heartstopper — is Joe Locke."

LuPone went on to describe Calderu — who debuted in Marvel comics in 1973 — as "a 450-year-old Sicilian witch whose power is divination and whose trial is tarot".

The series will also see the return of Emma Caulfield Ford as Westfield resident Dottie, with the character 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?

Caulfield will be joined by plenty of newcomers to the MCU, including Aubrey Plaza, Ali Ahn, Maria Dizzia and Sasheer Zamata.

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: Darkhold Diaries

No, there is currently no trailer for Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.. We will update this page as soon as this becomes available.

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

Agatha: Darkhold Diaries plot speculation

The series Agatha: Darkhold Diaries 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.

Could these all have major roles in the series? We'll have to wait and see.
