It won’t be long before Hayley Atwell is suited and booted as the titular spy once more, as Marvel has confirmed that Agent Carter season 2 has entered production on the west coast.
Whisking our agent off to Tinsel Town for a brand new and dangerous assignment, the sophomore outing of Agent Carter will focus on Peggy’s bond with Edwin Jarvis – yes, that Jarvis – as played by Broadchurch star James D’Arcy. It’s a trip that will see our heroine encounter the villainous Madame Masque. Originally an antagonist to Tony Stark’s Iron Man, Executive Producers Tara Butters and Chris Dingess have reworked the arc of the character to incorporate her into Marvel’s popular live-action series.

Joining Hayley Atwell and Gjokaj for the drama are Chad Michael Murray, Lyndsy Fonseca and Bridget Regan. Agent Carter season 2 is expected to premiere in early 2016.
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.
