There hasn’t been many details on ABC’s second season of the absolutely amazing ‘Agent Carter‘ though today we’ve gotten a trailer, a new image, synopsis, and the premiere date! Fellow fans of Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter should be as thrilled as I am that the next season is finally on the horizon! Not only that, but with a January 5th premiere date for its 2-hour first episode, it is an early birthday present for me so I now just have another reason to celebrate!

First up can I say how great Atwell looks in the new promotional image? I think anyone not somewhere warm is going to be extremely jealous of her this upcoming season while she’s in Los Angeles. Here she’ll be joined by Ken Marino who is a mob boss that she’ll end up working against when not busy tangling with the soon to be introduced 40s version of Madame Madaque.

I’m pretty sure we’re all betting that she’ll have some kind of a romantic connection to Howard Stark as it will be well before Tony’s time.

Before I let you read what the upcoming season is about with the full season synopsis why don’t we actually take a look at the first teaser for the upcoming season.

As always they really just hit the nail on the head with the tone of the show. I can only hope that it continues to be as highly enjoyable as the first season was and brings in even more of a viewership this time around.

So, what can we expect this season? Here’s the synopsis:

Marvel’s Agent Carter” returns for a second season of adventure and intrigue, starring Hayley Atwell in the titular role of the unstoppable 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.

“Marvel’s Agent Carter” stars Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, Enver Gjokaj as Chief Daniel Sousa, Wynn Everett as Whitney Frost, Reggie Austin as Jason Wilkes and Chad Michael Murray as Chief Jack Thompson. Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Chris Dingess, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Stan Lee and Jeph Loeb are executive producers. “Marvel’s Agent Carter” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.

I’m glad to see Jarvis back and I’m hoping we’ll get some cameos from other characters as well as references to older B and C list villains as the show moves forward. I know that they don’t need to include any of the supers as this is prior to most of them but there could be mentions to an original Baron Zemo before the upcoming ‘Captain America Civil War’, an inclusion of the original Black Talon, Master Man, or members if Hydra. There is a lot they could play with that wouldn’t really mess with continuity.

Not that I would complain if we just see her battling mob bosses.
