Reports of Agatha’s (show) demise have been greatly exaggerated. Not only is Agatha: Coven of Chaos still on track, but one of its stars just spilled some juicy tea.

Up until now, almost next to nothing has been announced about the series, including any details about the plot.

Today, while guesting on The View, Patti LuPone — who was previously announced to be joining the cast along with Aubrey Plaza and Joe Locke — opened up about her new role in the Marvel series and even shared some hints about what the series would focus on.

According to LuPone, her character is Lilia Calderu, who is “a 450-year-old Sicilian witch whose power is divination and whose trial is tarot.”

She went on to offer some pretty big hints about her costar’s characters as well. “It’s a coven of witches, and I play Lilia Calderu, who apparently is in the Marvel world. I researched her, she’s hot, she’s really hot, she’s got a great body and hair. I didn’t know there were witches, I didn’t know anything about the Marvel world. There are witches in the Marvel world. So, we are a coven of witches and the witches are Kathryn Hahn, Aubrey Plaza, and [their] familiar — if anybody knows Heartstopper — is Joe Locke.”

She also confirmed that Sasheer Zamata and Ali Ahn would also be taking on witchy roles in the series.

Ooop! She is spilling it all and it’s unclear if those are Marvel-sanctioned spoilers or not. But we stan a fearless queen!

As for how it all ties together, a little backstory on Lilia Calderu may help offer some insight. The character was introduced — and died — in the 1973 comic Marvel Premiere #12. She was the keeper of the Book of Cagliostro (which popped up in the first Doctor Strange film) and she has a child with Doctor Strange’s rival, Baron Mordo (who is played by Chiwetel Ejiofor in the Doctor Strange films). It will be interesting to see which, if any, of these references appear in the upcoming series. We’ll just have to wait and see — that is unless, of course, LuPone would like to dish some more deets. We’re all ears.

She did have one more bit of info to share: The show should be arriving on Disney+ sometime in 2024. We can’t wait!
