Agent Carter is back for Season 2 with a few shakeups, including its primary locale. In a major shift from its first season, Hayley Atwell‘s Peggy Carter will be kicking off Season 2 with a move to sunny Los Angeles, where it seems she (in this stunning picture of swoon-worthy fashion below) is fully embracing the Atomic Age.
ABC also announced today that the series will return January 5th in its regular Tuesday night slot (paired with the winter return of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and will have a 2-hour premiere. (See the full list of Winter TV premieres here). But seriously, check out Peggy in her full L.A. glory. It’s fantastic:
As we also reported recently, Season 2 will be adding Ken Marino (Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp) to the cast as a volatile mob boss who will assist Peggy’s adversaries. How dare he!
