Yesterday we finally got the first trailer for “Agatha All Along”. But since “WandaVision” is already over three years old, the question is whether anyone cares.

In 2021, the world looked very different. We’d all been stuck at home for a while, with the film industry all but shut down, but luckily for Marvel, their journey into the world of television was beginning. Right at the start of 2021, Disney+ received its first Marvel series, WandaVision, which followed Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany’s Vision in an era-changing series that quickly convinced viewers that Marvel’s attempt at television could work. WandaVision also introduced instant fan-favorite character Agatha Harkness, who (spoiler alert!) eventually turned out to be the series’ main antagonist. So Marvel did what anyone would do and decided to make a spin-off show about the character, and finally, more than three years later, there’s a trailer for it.

I’m mostly indifferent to Marvel projects these days, they all use far too much green screen and CGI to look anywhere near good, but the first trailer for Agatha All Along looks like a lot of fun! It starts with the titular Agatha as a detective who has forgotten her witchy past and whose powers have been locked away by Wanda, aka Scarlett Witch. Enter Aubrey Plaza’s (Parks and Recreation) character, who seems to remind her of who she really is, thus setting the events of the series in motion.

The show’s official logline reads: “The infamous Agatha Harkness is left down and out of power after a suspicious goth teen helps her break free from a twisted spell. Her interest is piqued when he begs her to lead him down the legendary Witches’ Road, a magical challenge of trials that, if survived, rewards a witch with what she has been missing. Together, Agatha and this mysterious teen assemble a desperate coven and set off down the road.”

Kathryn Hahn reprises the role of Agatha, along with the aforementioned Plaza, Joe Locke, Sasheer Zamata, Ali Ahn, Debra Jo Rupp and the well-known musical actress Patti Lupone. The show is set to hit theaters on September 18th and will premiere with two episodes. It’s also not the only WandaVision spin-off in the works, as another one starring Vision is also set to be released at some point.
