With Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. hitting on all cylinders this season, you might have almost forgotten Marvel’s other ABC series will be back for another go-round in just two months. Luckily, we have the first footage from Agent Carter’s second season as a nice reminder.
The period-set series will follow Peggy (Hayley Atwell) as she heads west and relocates in California, though the change in venue doesn’t mean she’ll be kicking any less butt. Turns out, there are more than enough threats out there — regardless of coast. Much of the key cast seems to be back for the second season, which is great news. Though Peggy obviously gets top billing, the supporting players developed into an excellent ensemble by the end of Season 1. Keeping those pieces together is a great move by Marvel.
Here’s the show’s official synopsis:
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.
