When word broke a while back that Season 2 of ABC’s Agent Carter would trade its New York setting for California, fans wondered what that meant for the supporting cast of characters around Hayley Atwell. Turns out they’re also tagging along.
Entertainment Weekly reports James D’Arcy (Edwin Jarvis) and Enver Gjokaj (Agent Daniel Sousa) have closed deals to co-star in the second season of the period-set Marvel series. Even better? Agreements to bring back Chad Michael Murray (Agent Jack Thompson), Bridget Regan (Dottie Underwood) and Lyndsy Fonseca (Angie Martinelli) are reportedly “forthcoming.” It looks like Peggy will be getting the gang back together in Cali, or at least keeping in touch with her New York pals.
Aside from the fact that Season 2 will be set in California, and apparently star several players from year one, we don’t know much about the plot. Here’s Marvel’s official description for the series’ return at midseason:
“Dedicated to the fight against new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home — and perhaps even a new love — she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.”
No premiere date has been set for Agent Carter Season 2, though we’d expect it to follow suit with last year’s scheduling model and fill Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s mid-season gap.
Are you glad to hear the rest of the cast might return?
