While there’s no firm info yet on how many episodes there will be and who will direct which episodes, it’s looking like “Agatha: Coven of Chaos” will build on recent behind-the-scenes strides made by “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” continue to depart from the MCU’s track record as a boys’ club, and be helmed exclusively by female directors. The series is also shaping up to be a reunion for a good number of returning “WandaVision” cast members, including Emma Caulfield, Debra Jo Rupp, David Payton, David Lengel, Asif Ali, Amos Glick, Brian Brightman, and Kate Forbes.
It’s as if the whole fictional town of Westview, New Jersey is turning out for this thing. New additions to the cast of “Agatha: Coven of Chaos” include Aubrey Plaza, whose turn as the Shadow King on FX’s “Legion” has already earned her a place in the Marvel villain hall of fame. Also on board is Broadway legend Patti Lupone, seen previously as a hedge witch on “Penny Dreadful.”
With them are Joe Locke, Sasheer Zamata, Miles Gutierrez-Riley, Okwui Okpokwasili, and Maria Dizzia. But of course, anchoring the whole thing is the presence of Kathryn Hahn, who now has a well-fortified crew of directors and cast members behind her as she looks to cast a spell on viewers again in “Agatha: Coven of Chaos” later this year.
