After serving as the breakout character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first-ever Disney+ streaming series, Agatha Harkness is getting her own series. The WandaVision character will appear in the series, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, with Kathryn Hahn returning as the mischievous witch.

We now know how many episodes will be in the season, as well as the directors’ names involved. Read on to find out!

Agatha: Coven Of Chaos Coming To Disney+

The upcoming Disney+ series that features the witch that gave Wanda Maximoff all sorts of problems is coming soon to Disney+. Most fans remember Kathryn Hahn as the actress who played the perky next-door neighbor that turned out to be a witch named Agatha Harkness. She seemed mostly harmless until she broke out in a song and admitted to killing the Maximoff family dog (created by Wanda using magic).

By the end of the series, Wanda defeated Agatha and then stripped her of her memories, and forced her to live in Westview as the clueless and perky next-door neighbor from then on. However, it appears the spell might have been lifted, as Agatha will get her own series.

According to reports, the new series will get nine episodes. This puts it alongside She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which also had nine episodes. Other shows, such as The Falcon and the Winter Soldier only had six episodes. The shorter seasons checked in at about 50 minutes per episode while nine-episode Marvel shows end up at about half an hour.

With Hahn’s performance in WandaVision, fans might also expect the show to take on more of the feel of She-Hulk rather than something a little more serious like Ms. Marvel. However, also expect it to feel a little like WandaVision, where things got very serious before the end.

Who Is Involved In Agatha: Coven of Chaos?

Kathryn Hahn will be back as Agatha Harkness, and that is the most important part. Heartstopper breakout star Joe Locke is also supposed to be in the show as a “gay teen with a dark sense of humor.” Another confirmed star for the series is Aubrey Plaza, who is rumored to play an evil witch. Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Emma Caulfield Ford will also return as Dottie, reprising her role from WandaVision.

There is also news on the directors making the series. Jac Schaeffer, the showrunner from WandaVision, is the mastermind behind Agatha: Coven of Chaos, so expect a similar sort of quirky storytelling in the series. Schaeffer will also direct at least one episode of the show. While she ran WandaVision and was the head writer, she didn’t direct any episodes.

Also signed on to direct an episode of the Marvel show is Gandja Monteiro. She directed five episodes of Chi and two episodes of the upcoming Netflix Addams Family series, Wednesday. It also maintains Marvel keeping women in charge of projects concerning female characters in their shows and movies.
