The first season hasn’t even made it to these shores yet, but US network ABC has just announced that it will bring Marvel’s Agent Carter back for a second season.

Agent Carter, which stars Hayley Atwell in her familiar role as Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and (SPOILER WARNING) a cameo in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, will return for more tales from S.H.I.E.L.D.'s early days.

Nothing is yet known about the plot for the second season, though the final episode of the first – **Bigger Spoiler Alert **here – saw a brief appearance from Toby Jones’ slimy scientist Dr. Arnim Zola. Also unannounced? How many episodes will form the second run, though it’s logical to assume that it will again offer eight, filling the slot between the halves of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., which itself will be back for a third season.

There’s no official word on whether the developing S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off will also be on the schedule, but the rumours are not great.

In related American telly news, The Muppets – another arm of the Disney family – will make their return to the small screen with a show that promises to take a look at their lives and relationships. Not, perhaps, an angle we’d thought anyone would choose to explore, but we’ll wait and see how it turns out.
