Aubrey Plaza is hopping into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, signing on to co-star in Agatha: Coven of Chaos at Disney+. Variety reports that Plaza is reuniting her sometime Parks & Recreation castmate Kathryn Hahn in the series, which sees Hahn return as Agatha Harkness from WandaVision. Emma Caulfield Ford is also returning from WandaVision as her character of Dottie and Joe Locke (Heartstopper) is playing an as-yet unrevealed role.

Details on the plot as well as Plaza’s role are being kept under wraps. The series will follow on the events of WandaVision, which ended with Agatha trapped by Wanda Maximoff in the town of Westview and stuck in her persona of Agnes. Jac Schaefer is back to serve as head writer and executive producer for the show, which doesn’t yet have a premiere date.

This marks Plaza’s second foray into the world of Marvel Comics, having previously starred on FX’s X-Men-based series Legion as a persona of Shadow King.
