For the last month or so fans have been anxiously awaiting a decision with regards to whether or not there would be a third season of ‘Agent Carter’.
It is with regret that I find myself reporting the ABC has chose not to renew the series for a third season, which means that we’ll never get to see Agent Peggy Carter form ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ like she does in the comics and the Marvel movie universe.
The news was broken by Variety earlier today.
Meanwhile Agent Carter herself AKA actress Hayley Atwell has gotten work on a new series called ‘Conviction’, which has been given a green light.
In ‘Conviction’ Atwell swaps her Agent status for that of a lawyer.
‘Conviction’ centres on lawyer and the former First Daughter Hayes Morrison, who is about to accept a job offered from her sexy nemesis, NY District Attorney Wayne Wallis (Eddie Cahill), to avoid jail time for cocaine possession and avoid hurting her mother’s Senate campaign. Working with his team at the new Conviction Integrity Unit will let her use her brilliant mind to turn over cases where there is credible suspicion of wrongful conviction, and give her a chance to turn things around with her high-powered political family.
Airing as a bridge during “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” hiatus again this season, “Agent Carter” averaged a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.4 million viewers overall in “live plus-7” estimates from Nielsen — down sharply from its first year.
