Aubrey Plaza is joining Kathryn Hahn in the upcoming Marvel Studios series “Agatha: Coven of Chaos” on Disney+. Variety It is known from the sources.
The series is a spin-off of the Marvel show “Wanda Vision,” with Han set to reprise her role as Agatha Harkness. Exact plot details, including the role Plaza will play in the show, are being kept under wraps. Emma Caulfield Ford is also set to reprise her role as Dottie from “Wanda Vision” in the new series, while Variety Exclusively reported that “Heartstopper” star Joe Locke will also play the role of “Coven of Chaos.”
As has been the case in the past, Marvel doesn’t comment on projects they have in the works. Plaza representatives declined to comment.
The role marks a reunion of sorts for Plaza and Hahn, as the two previously appeared on the NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation,” in which Plaza starred as April Ludgate, when That Hahn played political strategist Jane Barclay in about a dozen episodes. Plaza is currently starring in the second season of the HBO anthology series “The White Lotus,” as well as the FXX animated series “Little Demon.” He is best known for his roles in shows like “Parks and Recreation” and “Legion.” Among features, she has worked in projects such as “Dirty Grandpa,” “Ingrid Goes West,” and “Emily the Criminal.”
Plaza is developed by CAA, MGMT Entertainment and Schreck Rose.
Variety Exclusively reported “Coven of Chaos” was in the works in October 2021, with Disney officially confirming the news in November of that year. Jac Schaefer, head writer and executive producer of “WandaVision,” returns to the role for “Coven of Chaos.”
In “Wanda’s Vision”, Han began playing Agnes, Wanda and Vision’s nosy neighbor, before it was revealed that she was actually Agatha Harkness, a powerful witch. In the Marvel comics and series, Agatha is shown surviving the Salem witch trials and is more than a match for Wanda, aka the Scarlet Witch. When viewers last saw her in the “WandaVision” finale, Wanda used her powers to trap Agatha in Westview and force her to revert to her Agnes persona.
“WandaVision,” the first live-action MCU show on Disney+, earned 23 Emmy nominations upon its debut, including a nod for Han for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series. One of the show’s wins was in the Best Original Score and Lyrics category for the song “Agatha All Long”, which was used as part of the show to show that Han’s character was not who she was.
