For ABC, Marvel's "Agent Carter" will not have a third season while "Marvel's Most Wanted", a planned spin off series from the characters of Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood from "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." will not push through.
The show starred Hayley Atwell, continuing her role as Peggy Carter which she first portrayed in Captain America: The First Avenger. ABC has cancelled Marvel's Agent Carter after anemic ratings in its second season.
Its season two renewal was a surprise past year with reports suggesting that it was merely brought back as a "gap" show under former ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee. More seem to spring up every day, with relative newbies like Hulu also proving themselves a presence on the TV landscape.
The cast of Marvel's Agent Carter season two also included Chad Michael Murray as Agent Jack Thompson and Enver Gjokaj as Chief Daniel Sousa.
Agent Carter showrunner asks fans of the series to show their support in an attempt to get it renewed once again. As of right now, she lives in an entirely separate world, so it will take a fair bit of work to change that unless The CW intends to reboot the series when it reaches them.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is constantly in flux. Star Hayley Atwell is locked in to headline ABC's new series Conviction, while frequent guest/co-star Dominic Cooper is now starring in AMC's Preacher. Additionally, its departure leaves Agents of SHIELD as the final bastion of the MCU on network television. Agents of SHIELD is coming back for another season and spinoff a called Marvel's Most Wanted is looking good too.
All told, it's sad to see Agent Carter officially end its journey. So Agent Carter fans, do you think that the show has been cancelled?
It's especially glaring in light of the fact that Marvel is winning critical accolades and huge numbers of viewers on Netflix.
Meanwhile, fans had a quick view on how Agent Peggy Carter will turn out to be. Of course, this isn't the first time fans have hoped Netflix would save a superhero show.
