Season 2 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is only two weeks away. Today, Marvel.com released the official synopsis for the show’s second season premiere episode, “Shadows.”

It seems that the Agents will have to fight harder than ever now that S.H.I.E.L.D. has been disbanded. Protecting the innocent isn’t as easy when you don’t have a giant organization watching your back. How will Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), Agent Melinda Mae (Ming-Na Wen), the newly promoted Agent Skye (Chloe Bennet), and the rest of the team fair?

The official synopsis for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2, episode 1 “Shadows” says:

Coulson and his team are now wanted fugitives with limited resources–but that’s not stopping them from keeping the world safe from powerful and unseen threats everywhere. However, with new members they hardly know, will S.H.I.E.L.D. ever be trusted again?

Lucy Lawless, who we already know has joined the show as S.H.I.E.L.D. veteran, Isabelle “Izzy” Hartley, will appear in the first episode. Lawless will be accompanied by other guest stars, like B.J. Britt as Agent Antoine Triplet, Nick Blood as Agent Lance Hunter, and Patton Oswalt as Agent Billy Koenig.

The most surprising name to appear on the list, however, has to be Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter. It was announced months ago that Atwell would be starring in her own Agent Carter TV series to premiere in January 2015 during Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s mid-season break. It’ll be interesting to see how Atwell’s character, first seen in Captain America: The First Avenger, will be incorporated into the show. Will her appearance act as some sort of catalyst towards her own series’ plot line?

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2, episode 1 “Shadows” premieres Tuesday, September 23 at 9PM EST on ABC.

What do you think Hayley Atwell’s presence in season 2’s premiere will mean for “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”?
