Hayley Atwell’s brilliant SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) operative may not be returning to the small screen until January 19 following yesterday’s slight delay, but to compensate, Marvel has unveiled a brand new poster for Agent Carter season 2.
Placing Atwell’s Peggy Carter front and center, the latest image for the studio’s sophomore season is a really rather stylish one-sheet, and it’s one that only has us even more excited for Agent Carter‘s return in mid-January.

Shifting the espionage action to the west coast and, specifically, Hollywood, Agent Carter season 2 will feature a whole host of new cases for Peggy to handle, with new threats emerging in the form of Madame Masque. Originally penned as an antagonist to Tony Stark’s Iron Man, it’s understood that Marvel Executive Producers Tara Butters and Chris Dingess have tweaked the origins of the villain so as to incorporate her in the studio’s rendition of post-war Hollywood.
Madame Masque isn’t the only adversary on Carter’s agenda, though, with Ken Marino’s crime boss Joseph Manfredi wreaking all sorts of havoc on the streets of Los Angeles. Settling into a new home has never been easy, eh?
In the wake of yesterday’s switcheroo, Hayley Atwell will reprise her title role in Agent Carter season 2 on Tuesday, January 19 on ABC. Dominic Cooper, Bridget Regan and Wynn Everett as the malevolent Whitney Frost round out the cast.
Marvel’s “Agent Carter” returns for a second season of adventure and intrigue, starring Hayley Atwell in the titular role of the unstoppable secret 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.
