Agent Carter gets two hour premiere

ABC is getting ready to launch their next Marvel show with fan-favourite Agent Carter played by Hayley Atwell. Today’s official press release from ABC announced that the season premiere will be for two hours on January 6th 2015.

The press release interestingly mentions that its’ now a “seven part television event” meaning that they decided to merge the first two episodes into one which is a very admirable decision and it’s a good way to set it up for both old and new fans of Agent Carter.

Agent Carter also has one big cast with a lot of recognizable faces with Dominic Cooper reprising his role as Howard Stark (remains to be seen how many episodes he will actually be in) as well as new additions of James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, Chad Michael Murray as Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as Agent Daniel Sousa and Shea Whigham as Chief Roger Dooley. We will also see Lyndsy Fonseca and Bridget Regan as the characters Angie Martinelli and Dottie.

Here is also the synopsis for the show, revealing some very exciting details about Agent Carter:

It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), 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 finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field, putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – aka Captain America. When old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, “Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger”) finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy — the only person he can trust — to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name. He empowers his butler, Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy), to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for selling these weapons of mass destruction. If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse.
