Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo, the cast of Marvel’s Agatha: Coven of Chaos, has grown by two! The highly-anticipated WandaVision spinoff series will conjure Ali Ahn (AnyaSupernaturalLittle Demon) and Maria Dizzia (True StoryMartha Marcy May Marlene) for the Disney+ presentation starring Kathryn Hahn as Agatha Harkness.

The news that Ahn and Dizzia are joining the series comes hot off the umbra-black heels of Aubrey Plaza (LegionChild’s PlayEmily the Criminal) and Joe Locke (Heartstopper) signing onto the spinoff, with Plaza believed to be playing a villain. Morgan Le Fay, anyone? Enchantress? Eh? Ahn and Dizzia’s roles are being kept under wraps, though with Marvel tapping into Marvel‘s magical side, they could be anyone.

Kathryn Hahn reprises her WandaVision role of Agatha Harkness for Agatha: Coven of Chaos, with Emma Caufield again playing WandaVision’s Dottie too. Who Locke will play remains a mystery, though Marvel fans speculate Locke will star as an aged-up version of Wanda and Vision’s son, Billy, also known as Wiccan. While this remains unconfirmed, introducing Wiccan would tie Agatha: Coven of Chaos to the events of WandaVision and introduce another critical member of the Young Avengers. Marvel has yet to announce plans for a Young Avengers film or series. However, they’ve slowly been introducing team members like Kate Bishop (Hawkeye), Cassie Lang (Stature), Elijah “Eli” Bradley (Patriot), Tommy (Speed), and America Chavez. I see what you’re doing, Marvel, and I like it. 

I’ll also float Nicholas Scratch as a potential role for Locke. Scratch is Agatha Harkness’ son, who becomes the leader of New Salem, a reclusive community of magic users who abduct Agatha in an attempt to put her to death.

Jac Schaeffer serves as the writer and executive producer of Agatha: Coven of Chaos. The spinoff series hopes to cast a spell over audiences exclusively on Disney+ next year.
