CBTVB: Hayley Atwell Set to Guest Star in Episode One of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. SEASON Two

By Muuka Muyumba

Marvel has announced that Agent Peggy Carter will be introduced to the primetime viewing audience in the first episode of season two of ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Hayley Atwell first portrayed the role in a Captain America: The First Avenger to rousing admiration. Based on fan reception to the character, she was brought back for a Marvel One Shot, titled Agent Carter, which again only heightened the desire to have her reappear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, Disney President Bob Iger was so entertained by the short that he insisted on them finding a place for Atwell in her own TV universe.

That was before we welcomed Atwell back again in a stunning cameo in Captain America: The Winter Solider. Atwell had her face composited with a much older actress to achieve the effect of a ninety year old Peggy Carter with Alzheimer’s, slowly floating away from Steve and reality. Watch that scene again and trying not to get misty.

Atwell’s Agent Carter isn’t premiering until midseason to replace SHIELD when they are on hiatus. Atwell will be appearing in the first episode of the show’s second season, titled “Shadows.” Season 2 picks up after the events of the first season finale, which left Coulson (Clark Gregg), Skye (Chloe Bennet) and company as fugitives on the run with limited resources after S.H.I.E.L.D. was destroyed.Agents of SHIELD is set to debut season 2 on September 23, 2014 on ABC at 9 PM.

Also, keep an eye out for ABCNews’s George Stephanopulous featured in a cameo in the premiere.
