Marvel fans, it's time to get witchy. Agatha Harkness is back and she has a quest in her sights, plus a new posse of pals helping the MCU's latest small-screen series get spooky. A spinoff from WandaVision, Agatha All Along was announced back in 2021, then locked in its exact September 2024 release date earlier this year — and now Disney+ has conjured up the first teaser trailer for the eagerly awaited show.

Kathryn Hahn (Tiny Beautiful Things) is also back as the series' namesake, starting the just-dropped sneak peek without her powers; however, that situation doesn't last long. First, Aubrey Plaza (Scott Pilgrim Takes Off) is on hand for a Parks and Recreation reunion, and to point out the bind that Agatha is in. Then, there's a goth teen, a magical gauntlet of trials and the promise of rewards — with the assistance from a coven of chaos.

Joining Hahn and Plaza in the series: Joe Locke (Heartstopper), Patti LuPone (Beau Is Afraid), Sasheer Zamata (Unfrosted), Emma Caulfield Ford (a Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum) and Debra Jo Rupp (That '90s Show). Behind the scenes, Jac Schaeffer (Black Widow) returns from bringing WandaVision to the screen to run the show and direct the pilot instalment.

For fans, this series really has been Agatha All Along thanks to the Emmy-winning tune that everyone who saw the character's first on-screen appearance has had stuck in their heads ever since — and again now — but the program has gone through a few monikers. House of Harkness, Coven of Chaos and Darkhold Diaries, this won't be, though, when it hits streaming queues from Thursday, September 19, 2024.

If nothing else joins the Marvel television slate between now and then, that'll make Agatha All Along just the second Marvel Cinematic Universe TV series of the year, after Echo (by design, with the Mouse House noting several times that it wants to better space out its releases).

When the MCU made the leap to Disney+ back in 2021, WandaVision was the first program to arrive. It also finally made everyone take notice of the always-great Hahn, who stole every scene she was in each and every time that she popped up — hence Agatha All Along getting the green light.

Obviously, WandaVision was about Wanda and Vision, with Avengers: Endgame's Elizabeth Olsen (Love & Death) and Paul Bettany (A Very British Scandal) reprising their roles. But Hahn played a significant part as neighbour-slash-witch Agatha, even nabbing an Emmy nomination for her efforts. So, because she was such a fan favourite, Disney magicked her up her own show.
