In what will certainly be sad news for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who were holding on to hope that they would be seeing more of Steve Rogers' old flame from WWII, The Hollywood Reporter reports that ABC has officially announced that they have cancelled "Agent Carter" - the Captain America spin-off series that sees Hayley Atwell's character of Peggy Carter continuing her adventures as a secret agent and spy working for Howard Stark and becoming one of the founding members of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Starting off as a one-shot that eventually got its own show that ran for two seasons, Agent Carter ended its last episode with a cliffhanger that will ultimately be unresolved... Unless the writers of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" or the brains in the MCU find a way to solve unanswered questions or revive the show in another network. It remains unclear what the future holds for Atwell's character, but the actress is now poised to take on a new show on ABC with "Conviction" - which is set to get its own series after a successful pilot.
Farewell for now Agent Carter, and hoping that you will come back again to give more glimpses of the MCU past.
