It was assumed that Kathryn Hahn would reprise her role as Agatha Harkness in the upcoming Disney+ series Agatha: Coven of Chaos, but a new set photo suggests there may have been a discreet title change made behind the scenes. In 2021’s WandaVision, Hahn made her acting debut as the character, a formidable witch posing as a nosy neighbour. In the series, Agnes—fictitious Agatha’s persona—became close to Wanda in order to make advantage of her supernatural abilities as the foretold Scarlet Witch. However, Wanda’s messing with Agatha’s memory and trapping her at Westview — as Agnes — at the end of the episode prevented the villain’s plans from coming to fruition.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos actor Joe Locke shared on his Instagram stories a set photo from the series, which teases a possible retitle of the show
The Agatha: Coven of Chaos update is intriguing because the series’ previous title change from the original Agatha: House of Harkness has not been mentioned recently. The potential change in title makes sense since it points directly to how the episode ought to begin, with Agatha stranded in Westview and believing she is Agnes. It wouldn’t be unreasonable to suppose that the programme would spend more time than originally anticipated in the Westview location if the series is really retitled.
Whether the Hahn-led series is called Agatha: Coven of Chaos or Agnes of Westview, it is expected to significantly expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s magic section. Rumors about the production suggest that some of the performers will play members of Agatha’s coven of witches given the series’ current title. With a star-studded ensemble that includes newbies Joe Locke (rumoured to portray Wiccan), Aubrey Plaza, Ali Ahn, Maria Dizzia, Sasheer Zamata, Patti LuPone, Miles Gutierrez-Riley, and Okwui Okpokwasili in unannounced parts, the casting for the programme has revealed quite a few fresh talent to the cosmos.
A number of WandaVision characters will make a comeback in the spinoff series, according to information from Agatha: Coven of Chaos, in addition to the new performers joining the MCU. Veteran WandaVision actors Debra Jo Rupp, playing Mrs. Hart, Emma Caulfield Ford, playing Dottie, Kate Forbes, playing Agatha’s mother, Evanora Harkness, and others will be appearing with Hahn.The potential renaming of Agnes to Agnes of Westview seems to imply that at least a small portion of the programme will take place in the Westview town from WandaVision. Since Dottie was widely believed to have a larger part in the original series, the actor Locke’s disclosure of the potential new title does provide some light on what function some of the returning characters may play.
The Agatha spinoff is mostly being kept under wraps by Marvel Studios, but the suspected Wiccan role for Locke might indicate where the series is headed. Scarlet Witch from Coven of Chaos might make a comeback in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Wanda seems to die at the end of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness after destroying the Darkholds all around the multiverse. Given the multiverse’s present trajectory and the universe’s current state, the character is likely to make a comeback. There is a potential Elizabeth Olsen will make at least a brief appearance in Agatha: Coven of Chaos if Wanda’s son Wiccan appears in the series.
