Two directors for Agatha: Coven of Chaos have reportedly been revealed, along with the show's episode count.
According to The Illuminerdi, WandaVision creator Jac Schaeffer will reportedly direct at least one episode of the upcoming Disney+ series. Gandja Monteiro, best known for her work on Showtime's The Chi, is reported to be taking up the director's seat as well. The report also claims that Agatha: Coven of Chaos will be a nine-episode limited series, putting it at the same episode count as WandaVision and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Whether the episodes run for the same length as these two shows has not been revealed and the reports have not been officially confirmed by Marvel Studios.

The Targashians | LLS
The Kardashians and the Targaryens are two of television’s most powerful families, so it makes sense that Kim Kardashian and her clan would take over Westeros. In a new sketch on The Late Late Show directed by Glenn F. Clements, Kim, Kris Jenner, and Kylie Jenner joined host James Corden in a riff on HBO’s House of the Dragon.
In the clip, Corden plays King Keith Targashian of Westeros while Kim plays his younger sister, who wants the iron throne for herself. Kris plays their mother, the “Momager of Dragons,” who just wants her children to get along. Kylie shows up at the end to steal the throne, proclaiming, “There’s only one king in this kingdom and it’s King Kylie, bitches.”
