Hayley Atwell Confirms Dottie Will Return in Agent Carter Season 2
Dottie was a formidable villain in the first season of Agent Carter, and was very pointedly left alive after the season finale. But after the return of the entire supporting cast was left up in the air after the location change to L.A., the character's fate became a little murkier. It was reported back in July that Laura Regan was in talks to return in the second season, but Hayley Atwell has finally confirmed that Dottie will, in fact, be back.

Opening quote
"Oh, she's a slippery bitch. We haven't seen the last of her," Atwell said at this year's Fan Expo (via Comic Book Resources). "Peggy has male baddies that she fights, but to have someone who is physically her equal — she's a Black Widow, incredibly capable and very smart — I think that shows some balance for Peggy, like a flip side of the same coin. You'll see more of her in Season 2."
Closing quote


It makes sense that the writers would bring Dottie back, as she enjoyed a positive reception from fans, and her Black Widow training not only makes her a worthy opponent for Peggy, but provides a connection to the rest of the MCU. Jarvis (James D'Arcy), Sousa (Enver Gjokaj), and Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) have all been confirmed to return as well, so now it really just remains to be seen whether Lyndsy Fonseca will reprise her role as Angie. She was also in talks back in July, but we haven't heard anything since, and we would be sorely disappointed if she didn't return, especially since her character is an aspiring actress and would be right at home in L.A.

The second season of Agent Carter just entered production, and is expected to premiere sometime in early 2016, during the midseason hiatus of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
