Agent Carter Reunites with Familiar Faces in New Season Two Premiere Synopsis

After a hard-won battle, we finally got our second season of Agent Carter, which is fast approaching now that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is on hiatus. A synopsis for the premiere has been released, and it previews more bad-ass action from Peggy, as well as reunions with old friends and enemies alike:

Opening quote
In the season premiere episode, "The Lady in the Lake," Peggy moves to the City of Angels to help Chief Daniel Sousa at the West Coast Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR) investigate a bizarre homicide involving an alleged killer and Isodyne Energy, and reunites with some familiar faces.

Guest starring are Currie Graham as Calvin Chadwick, Lotte Verbeek as Ana Jarvis, Lesley Boone as Rose, Sarah Bolger as Violet, Bridget Regan as Dottie Underwood, Sean O'Bryan as Det. Andrew Henry, John Gilbert as elderly teller, Kurtwood Smith as Vernon Masters, Edward Deraney as SSR agent #1, Kevin Ashworth as Agent Fisher, Angela Cristantello as receptionist, Bruce Katzman as medical examiner, Alex Alcheh as rookie cop, Matt Braunger as SSR lab tech and Jonathan Lavallee as commanding officer.
Closing quote

Presumably, the "familiar faces" are referring to returning regular cast members James D'Arcy, who plays Jarvis, Enver Gjokaj, who plays Chief Daniel Sousa, and Chad Michael Murray, who plays Chief Jack Thompson. But the premiere will also see the return of fan favorite villain Dottie Underwood, who will likely shed more light on the mythology of Marvel's Black Widow program.

The season will also see the addition of Wynn Everett as Whitney Frost/Madame Masque, described as a scientific genius and an actress in the vein of Hedy Lamarr and Lauren Bacall, who will likely fill the female friendship void left by Angie, and Reggie Austin as Jason Wilkes, a scientist and potential love interest for Peggy.

Here's the official synopsis for the second season:


Opening quote
"Marvel's Agent Carter" returns for a second season of adventure and intrigue, starring Hayley Atwell in the titular role of the unstoppable agent for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), TUESDAY, JANUARY 19 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EST) on the ABC Television Network. Dedicated to the fight against new Atomic Age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now 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.
Closing quote

Agent Carter returns for its second season on January 19 at 9pm ET on ABC.
