Agatha All Along: Here’s a first look at Marvel’s new hit series

Agatha Harkness is stirring up some trouble in the first image of Agatha All Along, the upcoming Disney+ series from Marvel.

When we last saw Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha in WandaVision, she was wreaking havoc for Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) in Westview, New Jersey. In a surprising reveal, Agatha was disrupting Wanda’s life all along. The cunning witch nearly stole Wanda’s chaos magic but failed after being overpowered by Scarlett Witch, who traps Agatha’s mind in Agness from Westview.

Now, Agatha is looking to regain her powers with the help of other witches in Agatha All Along. In Empire’s exclusive image, Agatha is joined by Patti LuPone as Lilia, Sasheer Zamata as Jennifer, Ali Ahn as Alice, and Debra Jo Rupp as Sharon. Series creator Jac Schaeffer explained the link between the “disparate mixed bag of witches.”

“What they have in common is that they’re covenless witches,” Schaeffer told Empire. “Witches are defined by deception, treachery, villainy and selfishness. What do you do when you have a group of witches who [demonstrate] those notions and you need them to work together?”

Plot details remain under wraps, though the series will have a musical element, with Oscar and Grammy-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez writing new tunes. Agatha All Along also stars Aubrey Plaza as Rio Vidal, Joe Locke as Billy Kaplan, and Miles Gutierrez-Riley as Billy’s boyfriend.

In the MCU, Agatha All Along will be part of Phase Five. The series will stream on Disney+ on September 18, 2024, with two new episodes. The other seven episodes will be released weekly through November 6.

The best shows on Disney+ right now (July 2024)

Do you know how you can find the best shows on Disney+? By looking at everything on Hulu. If you click on the series tab on the Disney+ homepage, you'll see the listings dominated by The Bear, Clipped, Only Murders in the Building, Hit-Monkey, and more Hulu shows rather than anything fresh from Disney+. The problem is that you need to also be a Hulu subscriber to watch them.

So what are you getting new on Disney+ in July? A preschooler's paradise with Bluey minisodes, Mickey Mouse Funhouse, Pupstruction, and Firebuds. That's good if you have young children. But it's not very satisfying for any adults in the family. And there aren't even any new Marvel shows until Agatha All Along arrives in the middle of September. What are we supposed to do in the interim?

One of the joys of streaming is that you have access to a huge selection of movies whenever you might want to watch them. Even if you only subscribe to Amazon Prime Video, you're probably aware that you have access to hundreds of titles, many of them well worth your time.

While that's an enormous benefit, it also comes with a cost: deciding what to prioritize. Choosing which titles to watch can be a challenge, but one way to prioritize is to see which movies are set to leave soon. It's for that reason that you should definitely make time for Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again before it leaves the streaming service at the end of the month. This sequel to Mamma Mia! may sound silly, but trust us, it's well worth your time. Here are three reasons you should check it out:
