Agent Carter Going West

Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter

Marvel’s Agent Carter starring Hayley Atwell is getting a second season — and a new zip code.

After the fall, it will take over the slot currently filled by Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Tuesdays at 9 p.m.

A major change just revealed is that Season 2 will take place in a different city —

“MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER” (Season 2) “Marvel’s Agent Carter” returns for a second season of adventure and intrigue, starring Hayley Atwell in the titular role of the unstoppable secret agent for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve). 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.

Still an open question is what year the second season will take place in (does Atomic Age mean the 1950s?) and how many episodes will be produced.

  1. The first season was clearly late 1940’s. So 1950’s is not farfetched at all. Whether it is the early 1950’s or late remains to be seen.

  2. The Soviets tested their first nuclear bomb in 1952, I believe, kicking off much postwar anti-Communist hysteria. 1952 was also the first year of “flying saucer” sightings, if that has any relevance.

  3. Well, those Kree corpses seen in Agents of SHIELD have got to come from somewhere.

  4. [returns from a little research]

    As I suspected, the term ‘flying saucer’ actually dates back to 1947, after an alleged sighting near Mount Rainier. 1952 was when ‘unidentfied flying object’ was being promoted by the US Air Force.

  5. Whoops, sorry.

    There was a sort of mass hysteria in Washington, DC in July of 1952, of UFO sightings. It was fascinating watching the stories in my 1952 pulp magazines swap over from all kinds of assorted topics in the spring to aliens, aliens, aliens and saucers, saucers, saucers in the fall.

  6. Would love it if this tied into the Agent Carter Marvel One-Shot. Zodiac!

  7. Marvel’s Agent Carter starring Hayley Atwell is getting a second season — and a new zip code.

    Only metaphorically. Zone Improvement Plan Codes were implemented on 1 July 1963.

    As a resident of the 1940s, Agent Carter wouldn’t have a ZIP code. Unless time travelers from the future gave her one, which, in a TV series based on comic books, could well happen, I suppose.

  8. Bill, Agent Carter would have had a postal code, the bastard parent of the Zip Code. You might have seen something like Los Angeles 12, California. Hell, that ‘s something that even the Wikipedia article on postal codes doesn’t mention., but if you’re an old enough fart like me, you remember them.
