It’s no surprise that Agent Carter will get her own series, as actress Hayley Atwell managed to show a great deal of screen presence – stealing scenes left, right, and center – during Captain America: The First Avenger. While the spin-off series has been rumored for quite some time now, it was only recently that Marvel confirmed and made everything official.
During a recent interview with Collider.com, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have discussed what fans can expect from the upcoming show. For instance, it was noted that the show is set to run for around 13 episodes if it gets the green light, and that Atwell is interested in reprising her role. The series is also set in 1946:
“That’s how this is envisioned, maybe even less,” says McFeely regarding the number of episodes. “It would be a limited series and you would wrap up that one bad guy and that one case, and then if you like it, we’ll do it again next year and it’s 1947.”
