Last September, we told you that a show centered around Captain America‘s Peggy Carter was rumored to potentially be in the works…now it’s OFFICIAL!
ABC recently announced that not only have they renewed Agents of SHIELD for a second season, but they have also greenlit a spin-off called [Marvel's] Agent Carter that will star Hayley Atwell, who originated the role in the Captain America film franchise. A synopsis is below:
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,” “Marvel’s Agent Carter” stars Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter. Executive producers are Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters, Steve McFeely & Christopher Marcus, and Jeph Loeb.
