Hayley Atwell appeared at Comicpalooza recently where the star of ABC’s “Agent Carter” not only confirmed that the Marvel show’s second season will feature a higher ten episode count, but that the tone of the new season will be something warmer and quite different to the first.
She tells Digital Spy:
“What was very exciting is, in a second season she’s grieved over Steve and she’s now about to embark on a new adventure in her life. So she’s in a much better place, so in terms of where she is it’s going to be a lot lighter for her, there’s going to be more humour to her and more warmth. She’s not struggling so much with her identity.
I also think the show runners really want to move it forward. So it’s going to be set in LA and with ten episodes it’s going to be a very glamorous, dark world of 1940s Los Angeles. I think it might be touched upon a little bit about her background, but I think we want to move it forward so the audience feel like we are taking them on a new journey”
ABC is targeting the second season of “Marvel’s Agent Carter” to air in the first quarter of next year.
