ABC already has a hit series under its belt with ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’ and in 2015 the network is hoping to expand that stranglehold over comic-book themed programming with ‘Agent Carter’. The series already had an impressive cast before today’s announcements, including the lead actor Haley Atwell as Peggy Carter.
Now you can add Chad Michael Murray (“One Tree Hill,”) as Strategic Scientific Reserve agent Jack Thompson and Enver Gjokaj (“Dollhouse”) as SSR agent Daniel Sousa. The confirmation of the new arrivals came earlier today.
The ‘Agent Carter’ series is connected to the ‘Captain America’ film franchise, but just how many characters cross-over from film to television remains to be seen. The series “Agent Carter,” is produced through Marvel Television and ABC Studios.
Fans won’t have to wait that long before the premiere of the series, Agent Carter is expected release on the ABC network in January 2015.
