Marvel Studios has announced a slew of release date changes for its upcoming Disney Plus offerings, including the Agatha-centred WandaVision spin-off.


The spin-off, which sees Kathryn Hahn return as the evil witch, was originally scheduled to debut later this year, but has now been pushed back to tie in with Halloween 2024, according to The Hollywood Reporter, amid the ongoing writers’ and actors’ strikes in Hollywood.

The series is also now on its third title, Agatha: Darkhold Diaries, replacing the previous title Agatha: Coven of Chaos, which in turn took over from the original title, Agatha: House of Harkness.

The WandaVision spin-off isn’t the only series that’s been delayed at Disney Plus, with Echo, the Hawkeye spin-off which was scheduled to debut in November, now set to premiere in January.

Daredevil: Born Again, which was scheduled to land in spring 2024, Ironheart and Wonder Man, which had to pause production as a result of the strikes, have all been removed from Disney Plus’ release schedule completely, with new premiere dates yet to be confirmed.

In addition, the animated series X-Men ’97, which was scheduled for a 2023 debut, has had its release date pushed back to early 2024. A second season is apparently still in the works.

Marvel fans will be pleased to hear that Loki season 2 is still expected to premiere in October, while season 2 of the animated anthology What If…? is scheduled to debut around Christmas Day after initially announcing an early 2023 release.

Alongside Hahn, the cast of Agatha: Darkhold Diaries also includes Joe Locke, Aubrey Plaza, Patti LuPone, David Payton, Asif Ali, Amos Glick, Kate Forbes, Brian Brightman, Ali Ahn, Maria Dizzia, Sasheer Zamata, Miles Gutierrez-Riley and Okwui Okpokwasili.

Talking about the spin-off, Hahn previously told that it came as "a total surprise".

"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," she explained.

She continued: "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."
