Now that ABC has already greenlighted a new TV series based on Marvel’s Agent Carter, the official synopsis has been released online, giving everyone a glimpse of what they can expect from the show story-wise.
As previously announced, the series will follow Peggy Carter after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger, with the character moving on to a new career as a covert operative.
“It’s 1946,” reads the official blurb, “and peace has dealt Peggy Carter 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 must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark, all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers.”
As expected, Hayley Atwell will be reprising her role as the titular character, with the show expected to consist of 10-13 episodes. The specific air date has not been confirmed yet.
