‘WandaVision’ spinoff starring Kathryn Hahn in the works: report


Marvel fans may not have seen the last of “WandaVision” star Kathryn Hahn‘s spell-conjuring villain Agatha Harkness, who stole the spotlight in the critically acclaimed Disney+ show.

Variety is reporting that she will reprise her role as the villainous witch in a spinoff series that’s already in development.

That unnamed show, which Marvel — as usual — is remaining tight-lipped on, is reported to be another dark comedy like its predecessor, according to the outlet.

Representatives for Disney and Hahn did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Post.

The spinoff will reportedly be executive produced and written by Jac Schaeffer, the head writer for “WandaVision.” Schaeffer also wrote the story for Marvel’s standalone ‘Black Widow’ film starring Scarlett Johansson, 36, who recently resolved legal disputes with Disney over the movie.

It will also be Schaeffer’s first project with Marvel since signing a three-year contract with the studio at the end of May, according to Variety.

In the intense finale of “WandaVision,” Agatha Harkness is last seen being defeated by Scarlet Witch Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen, 32) and gets trapped in fictitious Westview, New Jersey, as her suburban housewife persona of Agnes following the nexus event.

The show’s conclusion also sets up Harkness potentially to be a recurring character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“You have no idea what you’ve unleashed. You’re gonna need me,” Harkness tells Maximoff.

“I’ll be seeing you, Agnes,” she replied.

Hahn’s portrayal of the 17th century Salem witch also led to a 2021 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, and her character’s iconic song, “It Was Agatha All Along,” won for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.
