Season Two will find Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) in Los Angeles for plenty of Cold War-era spy action, according to the official synopsis: "Dedicated to the fight against new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home -- and perhaps even a new love -- she's about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect."

Following "Agent Carter's" second season, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." will return to the airwaves on March 8 for the second half of its third season. Thus far Director Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team have been adjusting to the increasing Inhuman population, including Inhuman hunter Lash and his dual identity.

"Agent Carter" stars Hayley Atwell and James D'Arcy; "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." stars Clark Gregg, Chloe Bennet and Ming-Na Wen.
