ABC recently released two new promotional trailers for the upcoming second season of the hit series "Marvel's Agent Carter.
The first in the new trailers, titled "Peggy Carter is Back," has a lighter tone and focused on Agent Peggy Carter's move to Hollywood. Another trailer was released before that and had a more serious tone, highlighting more of the action and spy work in the show. Likewise, it touched the connection of the show to the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Hayley Atwell is set to return as the titular Strategic Scientific Reserve Agent Peggy Carter, who first appeared in "Captain America: The First Avenger" before getting her own Marvel TV series. After fending off Nazis in New York in the first season, Peggy Carter now goes to Hollywood. However, it appears that the bright lights of Hollywood does not equate to a brighter everyday life as she soon discovers and faces a "more sinister threat."
Below is the official synopsis for the season two of "Marvel's Agent Carter" as posted by Screen Rant:
"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."
As part of the mentioned "sinister" threat for the new season of the show, Whitney Frost/Madam Masque enters the scene and is set to be played by actress Wynn Everett. Other new additons to the cast for season 2 include Kurtwood Smith as War Department veteran Vernon Masters, Currie Graham as Calvin Chadwick, Lotte Verbeek as Ana Jarvis, and Ken Marino in the role of the "volatile mob boss" Joseph Manfredi.
Meanwhile, James D'Arcy (Edwin Jarvis), Enver Gjokaj (Daniel Sousa), Chad Michael Murray (Jack Thompson), and Dominic Cooper (Howard Stark) will reprise their roles. Actress Bridget Regan also returns for a recurring role as Agent Dottie Underwood.
"Marvel's Agent Carter" will have a two-hour season premiere on Jan. 5, 2016 on ABC.
