It’s a new week and here’s your first Pop Culture Fix inside of it!


+ I had no idea this was a thing, and yet? It feels like destiny! Aubrey Plaza has joined the Wandavision spin-off, Agatha: Coven of Chaos. Plot details are nonexistent. The only thing we have is tidbits of casting news. Kathryn Hahn is reprising her role, of course. And, according to Variety, “Emma Caulfield Ford… is also set to reprise the role of Dottie… and Heartstopper star Joe Locke will also star.” Aubrey Plaza is probably a witch for real, right? If not, she sure does look good as one! PM UPDATE: Sasheer Zamata has joined Coven of Chaos too! Autostraddle EIC Carmen Phillips is now officially calling it as Best Comedy of 2023.
