Marvel’s Agent Carter is headed to Hollywood in season two, and as this new poster shows, Hayley Atwell’s title character is armed and ready for action. Los Angeles will serve as a backdrop of the noir-tinted season which sees Atwell’s secret agent working for the Strategic Scientific Reserve (S.S.R.) – the precursor agency to S.H.I.E.L.D. – and battling threats of the atomic age. While facing the expected threats in her line of duty, Carter will also discover new allies, and maybe even a love interest, along the way.
It’s unclear exactly how soon season two will pick up after the events of the season one finale, but what’s certain is that Carter will face plenty of veiled threats in the 10-episode second season run. When Agent Carter premieres in 2016, James D’Arcy will be back as Jarvis, as will Enver Gjokaj as Agent Sousa. Chad Michael Murray, Lyndsy Fonesca, and Bridget Regan are also expected to return to the show, which will air Tuesday nights at 9 on ABC.
Take a look at the new poster from season two of Agent Carter below (via EW), followed by the official synopsis:
“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.
