It’s hard to believe Agent Carter is already approaching the end of Season 2 (and hopefully just the season), but already Coulson and the modern Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are bursting at the seams to return. Our first 2016 trailer bounces back with new additions to the Secret Warriors team, along with Ward’s creepy return and other Inhumans.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been slow-going to build a “Secret Warriors” team after the initial tease at Comic-Con, but may finally Slingshot development in its Season 3 return. Natalia Cordova-Buckley has joined the Marvel drama in the comic role of Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez, a notable member of the Secret Warriors from the books.
However brightly Agent Carter shines in Season 2, there’s no getting around the diminished ratings from Peggy’s first year, and a recent decision to double-up the remaining episodes on Tuesday. Now, Hayley Atwell herself might be moving on to a different ABC series with a new pilot order, so could Agent Carter Season 3 end up lost to time?
Much as we’ve adored the first few weeks of Agent Carter Season 2, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans are eager to pick up on the 2015 cliffhanger that saw Grant Ward manifesting yet another Inhuman threat. Say no more, S.H.I.E.L.D. fans, as the first 2016 synopsis has arrived, leading the team to bounce back with a pursuit of even more super-powered Secret Warriors!
Say what you will about Marvel’s TV branch maintaining little connection to the films, Agent Carter has managed to feel perfectly at home with both Captain America and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. alike. Now, we can add Doctor Strange to that list with a surprising connection, while a new clip introduces Peggy’s new love interest for Season 2.
The other day saw John Ridley confirming that his long-developing Marvel TV series was still in the mix, even as no one knows what, or when the project represents. And even as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gears up for a spinoff, it seems another live-action comedy behind Marvel’s Damage Control may be in contention for the ever-expanding universe.
As Marvel gears up to shoot the pilot of its Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff Most Wanted, there’s been significantly less movement around American Crime head John Ridley’s top-secret Marvel TV series. Ridley himself confirms that the series remains in development, though we’re no closer to learning what it actually is.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. remains benched until March, following Agent Carter’s Season 2 return, but at least one other Agent remains active. Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and partner Lance Hunter will still have their day, as ABC confirms a pilot order for their Most Wanted spinoff series.
Were it not for a schedule change, Agent Carter Season 2 might have been here as early as this past Tuesday, but don’t fret - Peggy is back, and bigger than ever with dozens of photos from the two-premiere, and plenty of spoilers to boot. Plus, will our Masque-d big bad this season don her signature look?
Marvel’s Agent Carter hasn’t been particularly gun-shy with footage of the second season, even announcing certain surprise returns, though one face has remained curiously absent. No longer, as Dominic Cooper’s Howard Stark pops up for the first time in Season 2 with a new New Year’s promo for Peggy’s big move.
