Agatha: Coven of Chaos follows Agatha Harkness, a powerful witch who was first introduced in WandaVision as a friendly neighbor but turned out to be the villain who was “messing up everything” throughout the show. This is mentioned in the catchy song “It Was Agatha All Along,” which was played as Agatha was revealed to be the “bad guy” in the series.

WandaVision ended when Wanda used her chaos magic, became the Scarlet Witch, and trapped Agatha in her neighborly persona “Agnes,” where she would have no memory of who she actually was or what happened between her and Wanda.

Not much is known about the plot of this new series at this point, but it is likely that it will pick up where WandaVision left off. Additionally, fans are expecting to see more of a backstory for Agatha, as well as her future in the MCU.

Though there is currently no release date for the nine-episode series, it may appear on Disney+ sometime in late 2023, although there was some speculation that the project could be delayed.
