Hayley Atwell’s beloved secret agent will be returning to the small screen a little later than first thought, after ABC announced plans to postpone Agent Carter season 2 by a fortnight.
Now pegged for January 19 as opposed to January 5, the reasoning for the slight delay is the President’s State of the Union address, itself scheduled for January 12. It’s understood that the network still plans to introduce Peggy’s trip to LA with a two-hour premiere, though we’ll just have to wait a little longer than expected before her return.
Shifting the espionage action to the west coast, Agent Carter season 2 finds Atwell’s operative picking up a string of yet more dangerous assignments for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve). With the likes of Madame Masque already added to the cast list, new threats are afoot for Peggy, and we’re excited to see how the creative team behind the acclaimed series mould our title agent into her new surroundings.
James D’Arcy reprises his role as Edwin Jarvis, while Chad Michael Murray and Enver Gjokaj are also set to return. Outisde of that core cast, Agent Carter season 2 will also feature Dominic Cooper, Bridget Regan and Wynn Everett as the malevolent Whitney Frost. It’ll premiere on Tuesday, January 19 on ABC.
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.
