IGN had an opportunity to interview Agent Carter actress Hayley Atwell and the creative team behind the show. The first season has been designed to be an 8-hour movie or single narrative divided into 8 episodes. While the show is somehow connected to Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it takes place before the organization of the espionage agency. The creation of S.H.I.E.L.D. won’t be shown until Season 2 at the soonest. There are so many new and cool details revealed in the video interview.
Agent Carter will premiere on ABC in January 2015, while Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is on hiatus.
