The television side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow as Marvel TV, with the help of ABC and Netflix, adds new seasons and new series. Earlier this year saw the successful debut of Daredevil as well as the first season of Agent Carter, while this fall will usher in a new season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in addition to the premiere of Jessica Jones. Then, early next year during the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. midseason hiatus, the second season of Agent Carter will debut on ABC.
Following its first eight-episode season set in New York City, Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) will return to work for a 10-episode second season set in 1940s Los Angeles. A new teaser poster for the second season offers fans their first look at Peggy in the City of Angels.
EW debuted the poster (below), though it doesn’t offer much new insight into the second season, as we already knew the setting. However, the poster was released ahead of New York Comic-Con, where Agent Carter will attend a Marvel TV panel (along with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) in anticipation of its second season. Additionally, according to EW, the Marvel booth will be handing out mini-posters from Agent Carter throughout NYCC.
As for what we do know about Agent Carter Season 2, both Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy) and SSR Agent Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) will return, albeit in slightly different roles since Jarvis isn’t working with Peggy for Howard and Sousa has received a promotion. Atwell has also teased the return of Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) and executive producers Tara Butters and Chris Dingess have discussed the introduction of Season 2 villain Madame Masque.
With these character details added to the broad strokes of Season 2, in which Peggy will be facing off against “a more sinister threat,“ we can get a vague idea of what to expect from Agent Carter’s sophomore outing. However, there’s still more to know in terms of the plot and – perhaps more importantly to some viewers – the themes of the series, since Season 1 was criticized for spending too much time on sexism in the SSR.
Of course, since production on Agent Carter Season 2 started last month, it’s likely fans will know more about Peggy’s adventures in Hollywood soon enough. Additionally, with the show set to appear at the Marvel TV panel at NYCC, we’ll surely get more insight into the second season of Agent Carter – perhaps even an official premiere date.
