Agent Carter Is Done

The signs had been there for a while – Agent Carter had not exactly enjoyed the highest ratings and then star Hayley Atwell was cast as the lead in a new show (Conviction). And so today comes the final word: Peggy Carter has had her last adventure in its current form.

While two seasons doesn't feel enough for a character who proved to be dynamic, funny, smart and capable, the series itself – which was used to fill the gap between the halves of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. (renewed a while ago) – never performed to the satisfaction of US network ABC.

You could almost – spoiler alert here for anyone who has yet to see Captain America: Civil War, skip to the next paragraph – see her funeral scene in the latest Marvel movie as the final warning that we won't be seeing Peggy on screen for a while.

And in related Marvel TV news, S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off Marvel's Most Wanted has yet again failed to live up to its title. The show, which was to have chronicled the adventures of Bobbi "Mockingbird" Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood), had already been proposed and then dropped once before. And despite producing a pilot, the series' option was not picked up, leaving Clark Gregg's Coulson and co to lead the charge for Marvel's TV side on regular broadcast TV.

DC is faring rather better; all of its superhero shows are returning, and Supergirl is switching channels to US network the CW to join them. Plus comedy series Powerless has just been picked up to air elsewhere.
