The news broke at Houston’s Comicpalooza, where Agent Carter herself, Hayley Atwell sat down with fans at a Q&A styled panel. In addition to mentioning an upcoming set visit to the “Captain America: Civil War” set (but not clarifying whether this was going to be a cameo or just a friendly visit), Atwell also mentioned that “Agent Carter” has been picked up for a second season by ABC, and with 10 new episodes (the first season was only 8, amazing episodes though they were). The new season takes place is 1940s Los Angeles instead of New York, and the premiere date hasn’t been set yet, but you can watch footage from the panel below:
After months of wondering we finally have an answer right before finale episode, Agents of SHIELD has been renewed for a second season. I know fans are breathing a sigh of relief about this. Anyone who has been watching the show knows that it started off slow but has really turned around during the later episodes. Let’s hope the show keeps up the momentum and gets better during the second season.
Speaking of Marvel, Agent Carter has been ordered to series, so we will be seeing that during the upcoming fall season. ABC has released some information about the show:
“Marvel’s Agent Carter,” starring Captain America’s Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life–Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with the short “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.”
If the show is anything like the Marvel One -Shot it should be really awesome. It will be great to have another show on the air with a strong female lead. It will be nice seeing how she eventually become one of the founder of SHIELD.
In other TV Show news; Gotham, The Flash, Constantine, and iZombie have all been ordered to series.
What shows are you looking forward to seeing this upcoming fall season?
