New ‘Agatha: Darkhold Diaries’ Logo and Synopsis Revealed

A new logo and synopsis for Marvel Studios’ “Agatha: Darkhold Diaries” series have been revealed. The series stars Kathryn Hahn as Agatha Harkness, who was introduced in “WandaVision.” Hahn earned a Best Supporting Actress Emmy nomination for her role and the song “Agatha All Along” won the Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.

The Agatha spinoff has been renamed multiple times. Originally titled “Agatha: House of Harkness,” Marvel later renamed it “Agatha: Coven of Chaos.” With the announcements of various release date delays last month, the newest title of “Agatha: Darkhold Diaries” was revealed. The logo is similar to the logos for the previous two titles, with magical purple lettering. The series was pushed to early fall 2024.

A synopsis for the first episode of the series was revealed in the U.S. Copyright Office Public Records System:

In the first episode we see Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) 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.

Show creator Jac Schaeffer is listed as the episode director. The cast list includes Aubrey Plaza as Rio, Joe Locke as “Teen,” Patti LuPone as Lilia, Sasheer Zamata as Jen K, and Ali Ahn as Alice. The shooting location is Atlanta, Georgia.

LuPone’s Lilia is Lilia Calderu, who is a sorceress and keeper of the Book of Cagliostro in Marvel Comics. Zamata’s Jen K is Jennifer Kale, also a sorceress who has been part of various magical superhero teams. Ali Ahn’s Alice may be Alice Gulliver a.k.a. The Wu, a detective with magical abilities.

Locke is suspiciously credited as just “Teen.” Since Marvel announced his casting, fans have speculated he would play Billy Kaplan, a.k.a. Wiccan. In the comics, Billy and Tommy Shepherd (Speed) are reincarnated versions of Wanda Maximoff and Vision’s twin sons. Locke will reportedly be “a gay teen with a dark sense of humor” and a “familiar” to a witch coven.

MCU Future

the multiverse saga

“Loki” season 2 is currently airing on Disney+. Read our reviews of episode 1 and episode 2.

“The Marvels” is the next MCU film coming to theaters, on November 10, 2023. It will be followed by “Deadpool 3” on May 3, 2024; “Captain America: Brave New World” on July 26, 2024; “Thunderbolts” on December 20, 2024; and “Blade” concluding Phase Five on February 14, 2025.

Films planned for Phase Six include “Fantastic Four” on May 2, 2025; “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” on May 1, 2026; and “Avengers: Secret Wars” on May 7, 2027.

“Armor Wars,” a “Shang-Chi” sequel, an X-Men film, and another “Spider-Man” film are also reportedly in development but don’t have release dates. Another “Thor” film is also rumored to be in development.

Several movie release dates were changed at the beginning of the WGA strike and could potentially be changed again as the SAG-AFTRA strike continues.

As for Disney+ television series, “What If…?” season 2 is set to air later this year, and “Echo” is scheduled to premiere in early 2024, followed by “Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.” “Ironheart” and “Daredevil: Born Again” are also coming soon — with filming of the latter paused due to the strikes.

The future of the ongoing Multiverse Saga is also in question given Jonathan Majors’ arrest and ongoing trial for alleged assault. Majors portrays Kang the Conquerer, the main villain of the Multiverse Saga, and his variants. Majors was dropped by his management company and PR firm, as well as other campaigns and projects, but Marvel and Disney have yet to announce any decisions about his role in the MCU. He appears in “Loki” season 2, which had completed filming before his arrest.
