Given that we'd been hearing rumblings of ABC greenlighting an AGENT CARTER series for a while now, Friday's announcement that it's been granted a 13-episode initial run may not have come as much of a surprise, but boy was it welcome! Not only do we have another season of AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. to look forward to (attention all drop-outs: it's finally found its stride and is delivering consistently brilliant episodes in the wake of the Hydra uprising), but when that show goes on hiatus, AGENT CARTER will step in, meaning uninterrupted MCU for the bulk of the year! Awesome.
Following yesterday's news, Marvel Studios have now debuted the official logo and a synopsis. Not too much to go off yet, but expect lots more info to drop over the coming months.
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.
Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, Marvel’s Agent Carter is executive produced by Christopher Markus, Steve McFeely, Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Jeph Loeb.
