According to THR , the series will act as a "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.
The show will pick up a year after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger , and will follow Peggy Carter's blossoming career as a secret agent, while Cap remains frozen in ice.
A UK air date has yet to be confirmed.
