For many out there, the fact that Marvel’s “Agent Carter” season 2 is happening is a reason to celebrate in itself. It really doesn’t matter how many episodes it is going to be coming on the air for. Then again, we also imagine that there are still many who are going to want to know.
Therefore, some of these people will be pleased to get some confirmation that the series (which will most likely return again during the “Agents of SHIELD” hiatus) is going to run for ten episodes. This was announced by star Hayley Atwell herself at Comicpalooza in Houston today (per Digital Spy), and she also did a good job discussing some of what you can expect to see now that the story is shifting to a new place and a different point in her life:
“What was very exciting is, in a second season she’s grieved over Steve and she’s now about to embark on a new adventure in her life. So she’s in a much better place, so in terms of where she is it’s going to be a lot lighter for her, there’s going to be more humor to her and more warmth. She’s not struggling so much with her identity … I also think the showrunners really want to move it forward … So it’s going to be set in LA and with 10 episodes it’s going to be a very glamorous, dark world of 1940s Los Angeles.”
We know to a certain extent where this character ends up, but there is still a generous amount of enjoyment to be gained from finding out more about her overall journey. That will be at least some of the appeal of season 2.
