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?
