Go west, young Agent! For Season Two of the ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ prequel ‘Agent Carter’, title character Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) departs the urban cityscape of New York for sunny California, Hollywood to be exact, where Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) is working on a motion picture and his poor manservant Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy) is stuck in a life of drudgery, cleaning pools and “transporting exotic livestock.” Can it be, the proper English butler misses the life of thrills and spills at the side of the ever composed Agent Carter?
There’s no word yet on what the intrepid Agent is seeking in La La Land, beyond the description that it is “her most dangerous assignment yet” and that she will encounter a version of Iron Man villain Madame Masque. Even though she is originally from England, Carter’s snappy speech pattern and snappy mannerisms make her a natural fit for the bustling Big Apple. How will she and Jarvis adapt to the more easy-going West Coast? And what dangers will they find lurking in sunny locale?
Here is the new season’s 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.
iTunes has a sneak peak of Season Two of ‘Agent Carter’, which arrives on ABC on January 19th. Hopefully, this balmy destination will cure your winter doldrums.
