Carter was an integral member of the SHIELD prototype group Strategic Scientific Reserve and TV Guide reveals that “her path was similar to that of Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), who must now rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D. from the ground up after the seismic events of last season.”

Atwell is also gearing up to star in a 2015 spinoff series Marvel’s Agent Carter, which will follow Peggy Carter in 1946 trying to balance the routine office work she does for the Strategic Scientific Reserve while secretly working with Howard Stark on covert missions. No word on if Choi or McDonough will also reprise their roles again for the Carter spinoff series.
