After WandaVision put Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha Harkness into the spotlight to kick off Phase 4, the villain instantly became a fan favorite in the MCU. Marvel has already made plans to have Hahn return for her mysterious solo project, Agatha , which will debut on Disney+ in the MCU’s new releases slate.
At the moment, there are no signs pointing to the specific story that Agatha’s Disney+ spin-off will deliver, or even who will actually appear in the series alongside Hahn’s conniving WandaVision antagonist. The even more pressing question is when exactly fans should expect House of Harkness to begin streaming on Disney+, with only small updates on that front since it was first announced at Disney+ Day 2021.
Earlier this year, reports hinted that the spin-off was set to have cameras rolling by October, which potentially set Agatha up for a return to the MCU sometime in 2023; however, that no longer appears to be the case, as another reliable insider has provided a new expectation for when the show may begin filming.
Disappointing Filming News for Marvel’s Agatha Spin-Off
Charles Murphy of Murphy’s Multiverse posted a disappointed update to Twitter on the Marvel Studios’ Agatha House of Harkness schedule, suggesting that it may be later than expected.
According to Murphy, Kathryn Hahn’s Disney+ spin-off doesn’t begin filming until next year (2023). This appears to be a change of plans from the original October 2022 production start date, although it’s unknown how concrete those plans were.

When Will Agatha Return to Disney+?
Agatha Harkness took the world by storm throughout her time on WandaVision last year, even being part of the show’s Emmy-winning efforts thanks to her hit musical number “Agatha All Along.” Fans are eager to find out what this powerful Salem witch is up to in her solo story. But that song has been a long time coming.
Although Murphy did not indicate the date in 2023 that filming would start, it will increase its release time to at least one year, considering how much work remains.
Previous reports suggested that House of Harkness would debut on Disney+ either in late 2023, or early 2024,. However, this new update will most likely move the release closer to 2024 when filming begins. With at least 5 shows set for release in 2023, Agatha will have plenty of time to complete everything needed for production and have its own time in the spotlight the following year.
Although this is a disappointed update, Hahn & Co. are quickly preparing to take the Westview resident back in time for their own adventures in the MCU.
