Plaza is repped by CAA, MGMT Entertainment and Schreck Rose.

Variation exclusively reported “Coven of Chaos” was in the works in October 2021, with Disney officially confirming the news on November of that year. Jac Schaefer, the head writer and executive producer on “WandaVision,” returns in that role for “Coven of Chaos.”

In “WandaVision,” Hahn began playing the role of Agnes, Wanda and Vision’s nosy neighbor, before it was revealed that she was in fact Agatha Harkness, a powerful witch. In the Marvel comics and the series, Agatha is shown to have survived the Salem Witch Trials and is more than a match for Wanda, aka Scarlet Witch. When viewers last saw her in the “WandaVision” finale, Wanda trapped Agatha in Westview by using her powers to revert her to her Agnes persona.

“WandaVision,” the first live-action MCU show on Disney+, garnered 23 Emmy nominations upon its debut, including one for Hahn for Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series. One of the show’s wins came in the category of best original music and lyrics for the song “Agatha All Along”, which was used as part of the discovery that Hahn’s character was not who she seemed to be.
