I also think the show runners really want to move it forward. So it’s going to be set in L.A., and with 10 episodes it’s going to be a very glamorous, dark world of 1940s Los Angeles.
Even though the show’s new Los Angeles setting will allegedly be dark (yet glamorous), Atwell alluded to a transformation in Peggy Carter as she’s done grieving the loss of Steve Rogers and will apparently have a stronger sense of humor in the new episodes.
Atwell did drop somewhat of a bombshell during her panel. Forward the above video to the 19:41 mark to hear her plans to crash the set of Captain America: Civil War later this week. Whether it’s just a friendly visit or a plan to make a cameo in the film remains to be seen.
Marvel’s Agent Carter is set to return to ABC for its second season at the beginning of 2016.
