Now, the popular character is officially getting her own WandaVision spinoff series. Per Variety:

A “WandaVision” spinoff starring Kathryn Hahn is in development at Disney Plus from Marvel Studios, Variety has learned exclusively from sources.

Hahn would reprise the role of Agatha Harkness in the series, which is described by sources as a dark comedy, though exact plot details remain under wraps. “WandaVision” head writer Jac Schaeffer would serve as the writer and executive producer on the project. Should the spinoff go forward, it would be the first project Schaeffer has set up with Marvel since she signed an overall deal with them and 20th Television in May.

However, something sinister was afoot as Wanda and Vision worked their way through classic sitcom eras, and — largely thanks to Agatha — it ultimately became apparent that Wanda was holding the citizens of the East Coast town hostage in “the Hex” as a result of her chaos magic.
