The WandaVision spinoff series Agatha: Coven of Chaos has cast Saturday Night Live alumna Sasheer Zamata, sources tell Deadline. Zamata, who is keeping her character under wraps, for now, will be joining lead Kathryn Hahn, who is reprising her role as Wanda Vision bad gal Agatha Harkness. Zamata will be adding her comedic skills to the series alongside Joe Locke, Aubrey Plaza, and more. If this looks familiar to you, it’s because when the WandaVision spinoff series was announced at San Diego Comic-Con last year, Marvel teased a cast announcement for a malevolent character with a similar name. It’s unclear if it’s the same character Zamata is playing, but if I had to guess, yes. It could also be a replacement for the character from the original announcement who, like Zamata’s character, is said to be malevolent. Marvel hasn’t yet released a casting announcement for the WandaVision spinoff series. Hahn is reprising her role as Agatha Harkness from the first season of Netflix’s Marvel’s The Punisher, which is set to premiere in 2023.
About the series Agatha Coven of Chaos:
Disney+ is introducing the streaming service’s first family-oriented series, Agatha: Coven of Chaos. The fictional series, set in a magical world where monsters—werewolves and zombies walk alongside humans, stars Kathryn Hahn as the ultra-evil Agatha Harkness. A member of a sinister witches’ coven who develops a shady stake in New York City’s voodoo underworld, she sets out to rule Manhattan. It is based on the Marvel comic book character. Agatha is the only woman in history to ever be accepted into Darkforce Academy. Where her natural abilities are honed to ultimate levels. Agatha becomes the most powerful witch in the world and becomes a member of a sinister witches’ coven that develop a shady stake in New York City’s voodoo underworld. Hahn will star as Agatha Harkness, an ultra-evil sorceress with an unquenchable thirst for power and an endless desire for vengeance against her enemies.
What fans are expecting from the series?
The fans are expecting the series to be outlandish, a madcap romp with ridiculous monsters and super-powered witches. I’m hoping it doesn’t get silly and lost in itself, but that the characters are likable and clever. they are expecting some over-the-top stuff that they’ve never seen before. I’m hoping that some of the jokes will come off as clever, and not just surface-level references. Basically what fans are expecting is what you would expect from a Marvel show. Fun characters with the same sense of humor and style they’ve been known for all these years.
What makes this series exciting?
The series has a great cast with the likes of Kathryn Hahn, Aubrey Plaza, and more. What makes this series exciting is Kathryn Hahn’s character Agatha Harkness. She is a classic Marvel villain with an unquenchable thirst for power and an endless desire for vengeance against her enemies. The series itself looks very interesting, its all-female cast of witches is new for marvel and I’m curious to see how they pull it off.
