UPDATED: FOX UK Pushes ‘Marvel’s Agent Carter’ Season 2 Premiere To January 24th

Agent Carter S2Update, December 3rd: Peggy Carter’s return is being delayed.

As a result of ABC’s decision to push the premiere of the second season of Marvel’s Agent Carter by two weeks due to President Obama’s State Of The Union address to both Houses of Congress on January 12th, the show’s UK launch date is also being delayed.

FOX UK has confirmed to TVWise that they will be following the lead of the U.S network and the show’s second season, which had been set to debut on January 17th, will now kick off a week later on Sunday January 24th at 9pm.

Previous, November 20th: The ten episode second season of Marvel’s Agent Carter will receive its UK premiere on FOX UK on Sunday January 17th at 9pm, it has been announced.

Marvel’s Agent Carter is set in the 1940s and follows Agent Carter, the character from Captain America and Captain America: Winter Solider, as she undertakes missions for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) at the behest of Howard Stark in New York. The first season of the Marvel and ABC Studios produced series starred Hayley Atwell, James D’Arcy, Chad Michael Murray, Enver Gjokaj and Dominic Cooper.

The second season finds Peggy Carter, dedicated to the fight against new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II, 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.
