The moment Agent Carter star Hayley Atwell signed for a new ABC pilot, fans of Peggy’s post-Cap adventures began to worry, even as Marvel and ABC assured she could juggle both series. Ahead of pilot pickups, however, it’s starting to look like Agent Carter may be no more, while fellow Agents series Most Wanted has again lost some of its luster.

And lo, Marvel’s Agent Carter has come to a “Hollywood Ending” of its Season 2 end, hopefully not the last we see of Peggy’s West Coast adventures. Still, with last week poised to take out at least two major characters with “Zero Matter” (cough, Darkforce), who survived the big finish? Did Peggy finally take down Whitney Frost, and otherwise get her man/men? What Marvel mystery will linger for Season 3? Find out in our full Season 2 finale review!
Tonight will see Marvel’s Agent Carter ending her second season with yet another note of uncertainty, given ominous ratings and another ABC series for star Hayley Atwell. And while Season 3 remains a question, Atwell assures that ABC would find space for her to do both series.
However brightly Agent Carter shines in Season 2, there’s no getting around the diminished ratings from Peggy’s first year, and a recent decision to double-up the remaining episodes on Tuesday. Now, Hayley Atwell herself might be moving on to a different ABC series with a new pilot order, so could Agent Carter Season 3 end up lost to time?
Were it not for a schedule change, Agent Carter Season 2 might have been here as early as this past Tuesday, but don’t fret - Peggy is back, and bigger than ever with dozens of photos from the two-premiere, and plenty of spoilers to boot. Plus, will our Masque-d big bad this season don her signature look?
Marvel’s Agent Carter hasn’t been particularly gun-shy with footage of the second season, even announcing certain surprise returns, though one face has remained curiously absent. No longer, as Dominic Cooper’s Howard Stark pops up for the first time in Season 2 with a new New Year’s promo for Peggy’s big move.
The State of the Union address pushed our Season 2 reunion with Agent Carter back a few weeks (Thanks, Obama!), but a lengthy new synopsis for Peggy’s trip west should make up the difference. Find out what brings Agent Carter to Los Angeles, and what major villain makes a surprise return in the first full synopsis for the January 19 premiere!
The moment Agent Carter Season 2 confirmed Peggy Hollywood-bound, fans had to wonder how much of the original cast would make the transition along with her. Lyndsy Fonseca’s best gal Angie Martinelli seemed like a natural choice, though Agent Carter has only now confirmed the character’s return, and only then for the weirdest Dancing With the Stars crossover you never expected.
Disney may be having itself quite a weekend, but another corner of the empire will start to pull focus in 2016, as Marvel fans gear up for Captain America: Civil War. 2016 will also mark the 75th anniversary of the character, for which ABC has drafted an hour-long Cap special to air just before the Season 2 premiere of his best gal, Agent Carter.
Agent Carter Season 2 may not arrive until January 19 (Thanks, Obama!), but no need to pout. Our first full clip of Peggy’s west coast adventures have arrived, giving all of Los Angeles what-for as a bored Jarvis complains about everything in sight, and awaits Mr. Stark’s return.
