Though most of the attention is on Marvel’s Netflix offerings these days, one of the studio’s best shows is quietly holding down a midseason slot on ABC’s schedule. Now we finally have a look at Peggy Carter’s return.
Filming is well underway on the second season of Agent Carter, Marvel’s period-set spy show about the S.H.I.E.L.D. co-founder’s early days. The first official pic shows Hayley Atwell’s Peggy taking in the sun with palm trees behind her. The change of venue is definitely working for her. We don’t know a ton about where the story will be going this season, though the action will be leaving behind Manhattan for a sunnier climate in Los Angeles. The new season is slated to debut Jan. 5, 2016, on ABC.
Here’s Marvel’s official synopsis for Season 2:
Marvel’s Agent Carter returns for a second season of adventure and intrigue, starring Hayley Atwell in the titular role of the unstoppable agent for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve). 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.
