Agent Carter's Return Pushed Back By Obama's Final State of the Union

Agent Carter‘s Season 2 premiere has been delayed by a force even mightier than Marvel.

President Barack Obama’s State of the Union — typically reserved for the last Tuesday in January — has been moved up to Jan. 12, forcing ABC to delay Carter‘s sophomore run until Jan. 19. (Thanks, Obama!)

Though the preemption wouldn’t have impacted Carter‘s initial Jan. 5 return date, postponing the Hayley Atwell-led series will allow it to run uninterrupted for all 10 episodes. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s March 8 return date remains unaffected.)

POTUS’ final SOTU will also preempt fresh episodes of NBC’s Chicago Med and Chicago Fire, and Fox’s The Grinder and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, all of which are still scheduled to return from winter break on Jan. 5.

Crushed by this scheduling delay? Or are you just happy that once Peggy & Co. come back, they’ll do so without any breaks?
