Despite falling viewership, ABC has renewed Marvel's "Agent Carter" for a second season on May 7, as critical response to season 1 has been positive. ABC has released the official description for season 2 that states: "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."
A new location probably means new friends and enemies for Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). So far, Atwell is the only cast member listed for season 2. With Agent Carter's move to L.A., fans are worried that they won't be able to see the series regulars like Angie (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Jarvis (James D'Arcy) anymore. However, a tweet from Atwell saying, "See you sooooon darling @LyndsyMFonseca! X," may have confirmed Fonseca's return for season 2.
Like season 1, "Agent Carter" season 2 will serve as a mid-season replacement for another Marvel and ABC series "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D," according to a report by Variety. And based from a recent interview by Hollywood Reporter, showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters said that season 2 may not be limited to just eight episodes as it was never intended to be a mini series.
"Agent Carter" is a series inspired by the films "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." It is set in the Marvel Cinametic Universe and shares continuity with the films and TV series of the franchise. The show stars Hayley Atwell reprising her role from the films as Agent Peggy Carter, a secret agent of the Strategic Scientific Reserve (S.S.R) in New York City. Season 1 is set in 1946 following the events from the first "Captain America" film.
