Marvel’s Agent Carter has been selected for its show by ABC while Agents of SHIELD has been renewed for a 2nd season to begin in Fall 2014. The agent will prove to be an exciting addition to the series’ repertoire.
Marvel Entertainment states officially that '“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” has been renewed by ABC for a second season to begin in Fall 2014 while “Marvel’s Agent Carter” has been picked up to series to debut on ABC.'
This has taken place 365 days after Captain America: The First Avenger. Agent Carter, who is played by Chris Evan’s lady love in the series Hayley Atwell, expands her CV while her partner is stuck in ice. The basic plot is based in 1946 after WWII.
The men return home from the war and Carter has problems of her own. As an agent she has to balance a lot of facets of her life as well as juggle plenty of responsibilities. As a single female, she faces an onslaught of pressures and she finds that she has to learn to deal with them in a proper manner.
Sources tell THR that 'Agent Carter will be a short-order series and likely used as a "bridge show" to air during the second season hiatus of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, with both series ultimately being tied-in together.'
Seeking its roots from the Captain America movie, this story was co-written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeeley. Agent Carter was included in the script as a sort of joining extension to make the series seem more realistic and exciting.
"That certainly has a good chance to be on the network," ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee told reporters in January of Agent Carter.
With so many people watching the series, it will need more than just an additional member of the cast to make things work out in the ratings game though. The world is becoming a more extreme place where boredom is not tolerated for even a single second. And so sex and violence get integrated into virtually everything in order to have a wider target audience.
But the days when a little more was left to the imagination were definitely a better deal. Yet with this story of Agent Carter, the issues faced by a postwar world of chaos and reconstruction may just be the thing to pique the appetite of audiences for the twists and turns in historic situations.
