Hayley Atwell recently spoke with Marvel.com and shared some information about her upcoming role as Agent Carter for the ABC series.

With Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. officially done its first season, it’s time for Agent Carter, the latest Marvel addition to television, to take over the spotlight. Star Hayley Atwell recently spoke with Marvel.com and, at one point in the interview, confirmed that the first season of Agent Carter will consist of 8 episodes.

Watch the full interview here:

When asked what her experience is like when she meets fans, because she’s a Marvel star, but not quite a superhero, Hayley touched on fan’s expectations of the character and said:

I think the main thing is fans feel that we’ve seen her being capable, being sexy, being a femme-fatale, and they want to see something more, they want to see the complexities, thee three dimensions of her, what makes her tick, what makes her crumble, what makes her crash, and the limitations of who she is, because that makes her all the more relatable.

Agent Carter is set to premiere January 2015 on ABC.

Are you excited to see Hayley Atwell take on the role of Agent Peggy Carter for the small screen?
