2016 will be kicking off to a good start when Agent Carter returns on Tuesday, January 5 to ABC with a two-hour premiere event. Peggy is making the move from New York to Hollywood and while she certainly could make an amazing film star there are matters of national security that she will be preoccupied with.
In the season 2 trailer we see several returning faces such as James D’Arcy as Jarvis and Enver Gjokaj as Daniel Sousa, plus new cast member Reggie Austin who looks set to be a new love interest for Peggy. Queen of the double cross Bridget Regan will be back as arch enemy Dottie although she isn’t in the new preview. Sadly it doesn’t look like Peggy’s bestie Angie will be making the trip west and while Lyndsy Fonseca was definitely in talks to appear in this new season there hasn’t been any confirmation of this.
Here is the first look at Peggy in Los Angeles courtesy of the official Agent Carter Twitter including plenty of fantastic costuming and red lipstick to gaze in wonder at. Get ready to swoon at all things Hayley Atwell.

And here she is in a first still disembarking from the plane looking cool as fuck in red sunglasses. Sunglasses which rival Gretchen from You’re the Worst for how much I’m coveting them (regular readers will know this is a big deal). The sunny climate calls for appropriate accessorizing and they also make an appearance in the trailer and red is an important color in Peggy’s lookbook.
Update! For anyone wondering what make the sunglasses are, Steve in the comments helpfully notes that they are by Celine.
Update Part 2! Thanks to Ashley in the comments the sunglasses have now been identified as coming from Old Focals and this has been confirmed by Agent Carter costume designer Giovanna Melton on Twitter.For more Agent Carter including key art for the new season (with Peggy in signature red and blue) head here and check back for more updates.
Update! Agent Carter will return later this month (January 19) and sadly not this week (because the State of the Union is happening earlier – thanks, Obama). But still not that long to go before we get to see Peggy in all her glory again. Get the red lipstick at the ready.
