Marvel’s ‘Agatha: House of Harkness’ Adds Three Writers

One of the new projects Disney announced on Disney+ Day back in November is Marvel Studios’ “Agatha: House of Harkness.”   The Original series will star Kathryn Hahn as her character from “WandaVision.”  Jac Schaefer returns as executive producer and head writer.

Few details have been announced since then but looks like the series has been busy rounding out its writers.  According to their Writer’s Guild of America West bios, Peter Cameron, Laura Donney and Cameron Squires will all contribute to “Agatha: House of Harkness.”  All three have previously worked with Schaefer on Marvel’s WandaVision series.

According to Murphy’s Multiverse, Cameron co-wrote Episodes 5 and 6 of WandaVision, respectively titled “On a Very Special Episode” and “All-New Halloween Spooktacular”, which took the cast through the 80s and 90s and saw Evan Peters‘ Ralph Bohner appear as “Pietro.” Cameron also worked on Marvel Studios’ most recent streaming series, Moon Knight. 

Donney is credited with writing Episode 8 of WandaVision, “Previously On”, which was one of the strongest episodes of the series. “Previously On” provided some backstory for Agatha and effectively detailed Wanda’s true origins via flashbacks. It’s likely that Donney’s work on Episode 8 may well have provided some of the meat for what would eventually become Agatha: House of Harkness.

Squires has a writing credit for one episode of WandaVision: Episode 7, “Breaking the Fourth Wall.” That episode, which riffed heavily on Modern Family and, to a lesser extent, The Office, revealed that Hahn’s nosy neighbor lady Agnes, was actually the powerful witch Agatha Harkness and, most importantly, responsible for killing Sparky!

Production on “Agatha: House of Harkness” will reportedly begin in October later this year in Georgia.  A release date for the series has not been announced yet however it is expected to launch on Disney+ in late 2023 or early 2024.
