After making a strong impression in Captain America: the First Avenger which led to her taking center stage in her own Marvel One-Shot short, Agent Carter will now soon be arriving on television sets in her own eight episode long series. ABC has set the new series to premiere during the mid season hiatus of Marvel’s Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D. and made sure to make viewers aware of her presence by having her re-introduced in the opening sequence of the second season opener.
The limited series is set in 1946 and stars Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter and she will be joined by James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, Chad Michael Murray as Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as Daniel Sousa and Lyndsey Fonseca as Angie Martinelli. Dominic Cooper will be reoccurring throughout the season reprising his role as Howard Stark.
The series is set to premiere on Tuesday January 6, 2015 at 9pm EST on ABC. But until then Marvel has released a special sneak peek clip of the show introducing Howard Stark’s butler Jarvis as an ally to Agent Carter.
