ABC announced Monday that the season 2 premiere of Marvel’s Agent Carter has been pushed back to January 19, because even S.H.I.E.L.D is no match for P.O.T.U.S.
The scheduling shift became necessary when President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address–normally falling on the last Tuesday in January–was moved up to January 12. Although Agent Carter was originally slotted to return January 5, the two-week delay will allow the post-WWII-set comic-book series to air uninterrupted for all ten episodes.
Marvel’s Agent Carter stars Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, former fling of Captain America, current kicker of Marvel villain asses circa 1946, and S.H.I.E.L.D co-founder. The series’ second season finds Carter travelling to Los Angeles for her “most dangerous assignment yet.”
The President’s State of the Union Address stars Barack Obama as Barack Obama, former U.S. Senator and current President of the United States.
