‘Agent Carter’ Season 2 Drops Full Photos, Synopses and Madame Masque Intel!
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?
There’s oh-so-much to go around in advance of Agent Carter Season 2's January 19 premiere, as Marvel and ABC released the full photo set from two-hour premiere set “The Lady in the Lake” and “A View in the Dark.” Both seem to see Peggy and Jarvis playing a bit of dress-up (and wrestling?!) out west, while Peggy makes a handsome new friend.
Of course, for a more detailed glimpse, check the press releases:
In the season premiere episode, “The Lady in the Lake,” Peggy moves to the City of Angels to help Chief Daniel Sousa at the West Coast Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR) investigate a bizarre homicide involving an alleged killer and Isodyne Energy, and reunites with some familiar faces.
“A View in the Dark” – Peggy discovers her murder investigation has huge ramifications that can destroy her career, as well as everyone near and dear to her.
Had enough? Entertainment Weekly dropped a bit of scoop on Wynn Everett’s Whitney Frost, who sadly may not suit up as her comic alter-ego, Madame Masque:
She never wears a gold mask, but you’ll see a nod to that. [She and Peggy] are a very good match for each other. Whitney is smart, and Peggy can see through Whitney’s façade of being a glamorous actress. Whitney is used to people treating her with a certain amount of deference, because she’s a famous actress, and she’s met her match in Peggy.
So reads the full synopsis for the season:
“Marvel’s Agent Carter” returns for a dynamic second season of adventure and intrigue, starring Hayley Atwell in the titular role of the unstoppable Agent Peggy Carter, working for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve).
Dedicated to the fight against new Atomic Age threats in the wake of World War II, Agent Carter journeys from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous – and bizarre – assignment yet. East Coast SSR Chief Jack Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) sends Peggy to work with newly appointed West Coast SSR Chief Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) to explore a strange homicide involving a body that glows and emanates cold.
Upon her arrival, Peggy reunites with Howard Stark’s (Dominic Cooper) butler and her loyal partner-in-crime, Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy), who welcomes her to the Hollywood life and sets her up at Stark’s mansion. There, Peggy meets Ana (Lotte Verbeek), Jarvis’ free-spirited and devoted wife to whom she takes an immediate liking.
Eventually, the odd investigation leads Peggy to quirky yet charming scientist Jason Wilkes (Reggie Austin), who quickly becomes an ally — and sparks fly. As Peggy continues to find clues in this peculiar case, she is introduced to the machinations of Whitney Frost (Wynn Everett), a movie starlet, brilliant physicist and the true power behind husband and senatorial candidate Calvin Chadwick (Currie Graham). Calvin, a politician who will do anything to get to the top, befriends Vernon Masters (Kurtwood Smith), a veteran of the War Department with a keen understanding of how to work the system. Peggy soon discovers that corruption seemingly runs deep, making it hard to distinguish the good versus the bad.
The search comes full circle when Russian spy Dottie Underwood (Bridget Regan) returns into Peggy’s life in a new and unexpected way. But even as Peggy discovers a new city, both old and new friends – and potentially a new love – she’s about to learn the bright lights of post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.
Elsewhere of Agent Carter Season 2, we know that Ken Marino will play a notable mobster, while Lyndsy Fonseca will reprise her role as Angie Martinelli toward the end of the season, in an unexpected Dancing With the Stars crossover. The January 19 premiere will also follow ABC’s Captain America 75th anniversary special.
We’ll be waiting for Agent Carter Season 2 on January 19, but check out the latest trailers below.
