While Agents of SHIELD is getting better (in our opinion), things may be looking bleak for the series’ sister show Agent Carter and the upcoming Marvel’s Most Wanted.

With Hayley Atwell, AKA Agent Peggy Carter, having signed to to ABC’s Conviction, which looks likely to go to series, fans were worried that Carter was finished… and now, according to Variety and THR, it looks like it may well be.

They are saying, with the pick-up announcements just a few weeks away, Carter Season 3 is “highly unlikely” according to industry insiders.

However, Marvel’s Most Wanted, the Agents of SHIELD spinoff starring Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood as Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse and Lance Hunter has a “very good chance of going to series,” however, they also report “Most Wanted has been cooling and some say it’s not considered the lock it once was.”

So, there you go, both shows in trouble but things looking worse for Carter than for Most Wanted. How does this make you feel?

Let us know…

Starring Palicki, Blood, Delroy Lindo and Oded Fehr, So reads the Most Wanted synopsis:

[Marvel’s Most Wanted] centers on Bobbi Morse (a.k.a. Mockingbird) and Lance Hunter of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., two ex-spies and ex-spouses who are on the run with no friends, no S.H.I.E.L.D. and a long list of enemies looking to claim a bounty on their heads. Able to trust no one but each other, Bobbi and Hunter form an uneasy alliance with Dominic Fortune, a rogue adventurer with a wealth of resources and even more adversaries, who agrees to protect them so long as they help him with his own agenda. These two heroes will help anyone in need, all while trying to uncover the conspiracy that put their own lives in jeopardy.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. EP Jeffrey Bell and series writer Paul Zbyszewski will spearhead the project, both serving as showrunners and executive producers.

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….
