It was Agatha all along! After the huge success of the Disney Plus series 'Wandavision' starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, it has now been revealed that a spin-off is in the works and the story will focus on its villain Agatha Harkness, who was played by Kathryn Hahn.

The plot has not been revealed but it was just described as a dark comedy. 'Wandavision' writer will be a writer and executive producer here so it will certainly feel more or less the same atmosphere. If you recall correctly, Kathryn Hahn started appearing in the series as Agnes, Wanda and Vision's neighbor that was always there for her.

As the series continued the audience started to found some odd aspects and almost, in the end, it was revealed that Agnes was in fact, Agatha Harkness, a powerful witch that can easily rival Wanda. Without giving many revelations in case you have not watched it yet, Wanda beats Agatha and 'imprisons' her in Westview, the little town they all were living in.

In case you are wondering, Elizabeth Olsen is not confirmed in this series but the most we can expect is a special appearance since this will be focused on Agatha. However, Olsen is confirmed to the upcoming sequel of Dr. Strange so we will be seeing more of her in the future since apparently it will be linked with the end of Wandavision.

While we saw Kathryn Hanhs' Agatha more as a secondary character and not a villain, her portrayal made her earn an Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series. The series was nominated 23 times making it a big deal, but sadly it only took home two. One for costumes and one for Agatha's Munsters-inspired theme song: "Agatha All Along."

Earlier this year back in April, Kathryn Hahn revealed in an interview with People that she did not know at all if she was returning but that she clearly was not opposed to the idea "Of course I would! I would love to. Yeah, absolutely." she said, jokingly adding "What if I was like, 'No, absolutely not?'"

She also noted that since her character is involved in many story plots in the comics, she did not have an idea of what was to come. However, she revealed that when she was first approached and asked to play Agatha Harkness she was more than excited because she was a fan. "I had a general [meeting] with Marvel and [had] no expectations," she says. "I was a fan of their work and a fan of the actors that they work with and the quality of performers. But there was no expectation. Sometimes you never hear for years or never hear anything ever again."

"I went into a conference room and they walked me through the whole arc of the show and walked me through the part — and I heard the word 'witch' and I heard 'theme song' — and I was so excited. I was like, 'I'm in.' ... She's just a fabulous, fabulous character."
