London: Actress Hayley Atwell has revealed that the second season of "Agent Carter" will consist of 10 episodes.
The 33-year-old British actress revealed the news at Comicpalooza in Houston, telling fans what they can expect from Peggy Carter in season two, reported Digital Spy.
This means that the show's second outing will consist of two more episodes than its debut season.
When asked about whether fans can expect to see Peggy's backstory, Atwell said: "I had this conversation with the show runners a couple of weeks ago, and we talked about what is it that the audience wants to see.
"What was very exciting is, in a second season she's grieved over Steve and she's now about to embark on a new adventure in her life. So she's in a much better place, so in terms of where she is it's going to be a lot lighter for her, there's going to be more humour to her and more warmth. She's not struggling so much with her identity."
ABC has scheduled the second season of "Marvel's Agent Carter" to air in the mid-season next year.
