Agent Carter Cancelled

Bad news, Agent Carter fans. ABC has officially cancelled Peggy Carter’s spin off series Agent Carter. Looks like her funeral in Civil War was her final send off. Agent Carter followed Peggy’s adventures post WWII and post Captain America: The First Avenger as she worked for the SSR before she founded SHIELD.

It’s a real shame as it was a really enjoyable series with a great cast of characters. Haley Atwel was excellent as Peggy and it was great to have a female lead in the MCU for a change. I’d still recommend checking it out if you have a chance.

In addition to this, ABC has passed on producing another Marvel series called Most Wanted which was due to star Adrianne Palicki as Bobbi Morse/ Mockingbird and Nick Blood as Lance Hunter after they left Agents of SHIELD earlier in the season. Perhaps this means they might pop up in the next season of AoS, which thankfully has been renewed.

It’s a real shame that Marvel can’t seem to find success with their TV shows (Netflix aside). Agents of SHIELD is often dismissed but both it and Agent Carter are far more entertaining and much better written than DCs Flash and Arrow. There just doesn’t seem to be the audience for these shows for some reason.
