Marvel had previously said on its website that Peggy will have to travel to Los Angeles in “Agent Carter” Season 2 in her fight against “new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II.” Her new mission is said to be her “most dangerous assignment yet.” The report said Peggy will make new friends and find a new home in Los Angeles and also teases there may be some romance involved.
The plot of the next season is said to focus on the “bright lights of the post-war Hollywood,” which masks “a more sinister threat to everyone.” The premiere episode of the Season 2 is expected to air in early 2016.
DigitalSpy reported Season 2 will have 10 episodes, compared with eight the first season. Atwell said her character will be warmer and funnier in “Agent Carter” Season 2, which will show the “very glamorous, dark world of 1940s Los Angeles.”
