Peggy Carter is moving to Hollywood for season 2 of Agent Carter and she is taking some of her co-workers with her. So far it has been confirmed that James D’Arcy (Edwin Jarvis) and Enver Gjokaj (Agent Daniel Sousa) will be back with Lyndsy Fonseca, Bridget Regan and Chad Michael Murray in talks to return. It would make a lot of sense if Fonseca’s Angie headed out west with Peggy considering her acting dreams and this is one lady friendship I would like to see a lot more of. Regan makes an excellent foil and her ties to the overall MCU backstory as part of the Black Widow Program make her inclusion seem all the more likely.
A second season was not always a sure thing as it sadly Agent Carter is far from a ratings hit and so it already feels like a victory of sorts that we’re getting more Peggy Carter. The cast will appear at Comic-Con next Friday (July 10) and this poster will be available at the Marvel booth (#2329) from Thursday. The limited edition Comic-Con poster was unveiled by Entertainment Weekly showing off the new location complete with the old Hollywoodland sign and Jarvis in tow.
While I’m sure the panel will offer up some season 2 scoop there has been some hints given regarding what to expect from this new location and executive producer Michele Fazekas explains “In Los Angeles, you have the spectacular wealth, glamour and beauty right next to the grit and crime—often right up against each other. We’re very much being inspired by Noir films.”
With Jarvis the chemistry and fun back and forth is hard to deny but how do they account for him joining Peggy in LA? The explanation from Fazekas is vague and this only adds to the intrigue “That was always the challenge. He’s not an agent. The case for the first season is over, so the biggest question for us this season was: We love Peggy and Jarvis together, that’s a really important relationship, how do we keep them together? LA has provided us a really nice, organic way to do so.”
Look out for more coverage of Agent Carter from Comic-Con and Hayley Atwell really wants to get back to work.
