Agent Carter was a nice surprise at the top of the year, as Marvel finally delivered on a story with a strong, independent female hero at the center (even she wasn’t wearing a costume). The adventures of SSR Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) will continue early in the new year with season two of Agent Carter, and as I’m sure you’ve already heard, the new adventure will include a trip to the left coast for Carter, her fellow agents, friends and enemies. Now, Marvel and ABC have released the first official image from season two, an image of Agent Carter that definitely says, “Welcome to California.”

When Agent Carter steps off this plane, she will be embroiled in Hollywood intrigue as she battles a new adversary against the seedy underbelly of late 1940s Los Angeles. Joining Carter on this trip is best friend Angie (Lyndsy Fonseca), fellow SSR agents Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) and Sousa (Enver Gjokaj), and her always dependable Guy Friday Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy). The Russian anti-Carter, Dottie Underwood (Bridget Regan), will also be back.
The official synopsis:
“Marvel’s Agent Carter” returns for a second season of adventure and intrigue, starring Hayley Atwell in the titular role of the unstoppable secret agent for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve). Dedicated to the fight against new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home — and perhaps even a new love — she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.
Agent Carter returns on January 5, 2016.
