Thank the old gods and the new, “Agent Carter” was renewed for a second season. Then at San Diego Comic Con this year, we learned some very exciting information about the upcoming sophomore season. Jeph Loeb spoke with executive producers Chris Dingess, Tara Butters, and Michele Fazekas and cast members James D’Arcy (Edwin Jarvis) and Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter) at Comic-Con about the characters, the popularity of the series, and what’s ahead in Season 2.

Peggy Carter will be moving from her haven in New York City to Hollywood. Looking at what fans can expect from season two, Butter said, “We are off to Hollywood.” It’s 1947, approximately six months after the first season ended. Fazekas explained, “Things are different… not everyone is in New York anymore. There’s some history we’re not quite sure about.” She said some people aren’t talking and we don’t know why, and Carter gets a call to go to Los Angeles to investigate a murder. Fazekas said, “Just changing the location generates such great stories and interactions between the characters.”

But don’t worry, Peggy’s right hand man, Jarvis, will be already in Hollywood.

Fazekas explained, “He’s been there helping Howard Stark set up his new estate in Beverly Hills. He’s [Howard] doing government work.” Howard has also started a movie studio. D’Arcy asked if he gets to meet his wife, and it seems like the answer is yes. Thought just because D’Arcy does, apparently the audience may not this season.

Then, one of the questions that is always on fans minds, is whether Peggy will finally find love again after Steve. Fazekas said, “I would say that Peggy has put Steve’s memory to rest and has a couple of new opportunities.”

Atwell also commented how she has loved playing the now iconic character and how the quality of writing was clear from the very first script.

“There were so many nuances of character.” She continued, “She’s [Peggy] has taken over my life in such an amazing way… It’s changed my life.”
