Hayley Atwell Responds to "Agent Carter" announcement

After weeks and months of rumours and speculation, Hayley Atwell took to Twitter to confirm that an Agent Carter TV series is officially on.

According to THR, the series will act as a short-order "bridge show" to be aired during the second season hiatus of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., which has itself been renewed by ABC.

The report suggests that the two series will be tied together in some way, with both scheduled to arrive during the 2014-15 broadcast season in the US.
