Agents of SHIELD had a rocky first season, with many fans finding it hard to stick with the freshman show. There was a good deal of concern in the fan community that the show would not be renewed for a second season. The beginning of the seasons was full the weak stories and dragged out ideas, but after the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier that all changed. The cast was changed around adding a few new characters, with a few switching sides, helping the show find its voice. In the last few weeks the show has really stepped up delivering a TV show worthily of the the Marvel name.
In addition to the Agents getting picked up for a second season Peggy Cater will get a chance to grow in the fall. ABC has picked up the series based on the early days of SHIELD.
Agent Carter follows the story of Peggy Carter (Atwell). 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.Reaper creators Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters serve as executive producers/showrunners, Captain America: The First Avenger‘s Steve McFeely & Christopher Marcus wrote the script and also executive produce, along with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb.
Hopefully ABC will stick to the plan of making this a series that bridges the gap between the fall and spring halves of Agents season, and not try to run the show at the same time like Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.
So are you ready for more Marvel on the small screen?
