‘Agatha: House of Harkness,’ the show’s working title, reveals that Marvel Studios intends to produce a WandaVision spinoff starring Kathryn Hahn as Agatha Harkness. First introduced to Marvel fans in WandaVision, Hahn’s nosy neighbor in WandaVision was originally named Agnes.
Agatha Harkness was one of the best parts of Marvel’s first show on Disney+, even though almost everyone expected the character’s introduction. Accordingly, it was evident that Marvel Studios planned to continue the MCU storyline based on the conclusion of WandaVision. A spin-off show starring Hahn had been rumored for some time before Marvel made the announcement official.
However, even though Agatha: House of Harkness is being developed by WanadaVision’s Jac Schaeffer, much of the show’s information remains under wraps. There is only one clue to Agatha’s future in the show’s title. It’s possible that, despite its unassuming title, Agatha: House of Harkness contains several secrets that are only revealed upon closer inspection.
It’s possible that the show’s title, Agatha: House of Harkness, refers to its focus on Agatha’s origins and the Harkness coven. During the Salem Witch trials, WandaVision briefly showed Agatha’s origin and how she was almost killed by other witches. Evanora Harkness, the mother of Agatha’s first coven (or house), was included in this group. Agatha ended up killing all the other witches by draining them of their magical powers.
For this group of witches, she must have spent a long time together in the 1600s. She could use her life story to rebrand the Salem Coven as the first and original House of Harkness. House of Harkness would be a great place to explore Agatha’s upbringing, especially her relationship with her witch mother, who has already been convincingly de-aged to look like her younger self.
There may also be some time spent on Agatha’s reinvention of the Harkness house in her spinoff show. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has yet to delve into the first three hundred years of her life. This could include the beginning of her coven, as revealed in Agatha: House of Harkness.
If Agatha’s backstory is revealed, it could indicate that she has trained younger witches in dark magic who are currently affiliated with the House of Harkness. A group of recruits may even be responsible for rescuing Agnus from the spell Scarlet Witch cast on her at the end of WandaVision.
There are two possible explanations for why Agatha: House of Harkness’ name is so Harry Potter-like. There are four magical Hogwartz houses in the popular wizarding franchise: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin, each with their distinct personalities. House Harkness is likely to be a darker collection of witches because of their use of dark magic.
However, it could also allow Marvel to establish other magical houses across the MCU. This could include Scarlet Witch starting her school, or it could contribute to the emergence of Strange Academy after Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Regardless of which option is chosen, Agatha: House of Harkness could play an important role in expanding the MCU’s magical universe.
