It's been confirmed that ABC has ordered a series starring Hayley Atwell's Agent Peggy Carter...

For fans hoping to see more of Hayley Atwell's character, Agent Peggy Carter, there's some great news. ABC have reportedly picked up a series which will follow the fortunes of the Marvel character made famous by her appearance in Captain America. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Carter TV series will follow on a year after the events of that 2011 film, and will follow the agent's career as she works for the Strategic Scientific Reserve in. It's said that Howard Stark will feature, which we're hoping will mean a few guest appearances from Dominic Cooper, who played the character in The First Avenger.

It's also reported that Agent Carter will be a "short order" series, designed to fill the gap between Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D's first and second seasons (news of which also landed recently), and with a story that will somehow intertwine between the two. Further details are currently a little thin on the ground, but when we hear more, we'll be sure to share them with you.
