While we knew it was looking like it was going to happen, it’s still a bit of a blow when it comes.

On a night when DC’s Supergirl got great news (here), it seems that Marvel’s female hero, Peggy Carter, has taken a critical blow as ABC have cancelled the third season of the series.

The show faced the axe at the end of season one but was saved and used as as ‘gap’ show but now its luck appears to have run out.

“Despite heaps of praise from critics, Carter finished its limited run with a 1.4 rating among adults under 50 and 4.3 million total viewers with DVR — both a far cry from Agents of SHIELD. Compounding that, ABC is spinning off popular Agents of SHIELD favorites Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood for Marvel’s Most Wanted, a more natural extension of the already renewed flagship series.”

We’re sorry to see Hayley Atwell leave the MCU as her portrayal of Peggy Carter has been a constantly uplifting and enjoyable part of the overall story but with her SPOILER death in Captain America: Civil War, this almost feels like it was meant to be.

Still, season 2 had to end on a cliff-hanger, didn’t it?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
