Numerous productions across the industry were affected by the recent strikes, and MCU productions were affected as well, some projects more so than others. And looking at the upcoming slate of projects, two of them stand out as having the most rocky productions imaginable. Of course, we’re talking about ‘Echo,’ which was delayed multiple times, and ‘Agatha,’ plagued with numerous title changes and delays. Fortunately, it seems that ‘Agatha’ will finally see the light of day on September 19, 2024, as reported via ‘Scarlet Witch Updates.’
Apparently, the synopsis of the first episode is also available.
“In the first episode, we see Agatha finally break out of a spell she has been trapped in. She can’t wait to go back to her old murderous ways only to find that she is powerless. The only way forward for her is to embark on a perilous quest to get her powers back with the help of an unlikely friend or two.”
Agatha debuted in the Disney+ series ‘WandaWision,’ as the nosy neighbour-turned-powerful witch who tried to steal Wanda’s powers. By the end of the show, Agatha is defeated and trapped in her noisy neighbor persona, left powerless, which will obviously translate to the first episode of the show. The two characters share a connection from the comics, with Agatha being one of the most powerful magic users in the Marvel Comics Universe.
The fans took a liking to the live-action version of the character, and by October 2021, Marvel Studios began developing a dark comedy spin-off from ‘WandaVision’ focused on Kathryn Hahn’s character.
Hahn’s involvement was part of a broader deal with Marvel Studios, and the series was officially announced as ‘Agatha: House of Harkness’ during the Disney+ Day event in November 2021. However, the title underwent further changes, becoming ‘Agatha: Coven of Chaos’ in July 2022 and ultimately being renamed to ‘Agatha: Darkhold Diaries’ in September 2023.
The series was originally anticipated for late 2023, but the release was rescheduled amid Disney and Marvel Studios’ content reassessment, with only ‘Secret Invasion’ and the second season of ‘Loki’ considered certain for a 2023 debut, so fans are glad to see a solid release date confirmed. Despite the rocky production, we can look forward to ‘Darkhold Darkhold’ diaries to lead us into the Halloween season the next year.
