Season two of Agent Carter premiered on January 19th.
In Conviction, Atwell will play Carter Morrison, “the brilliant but ne’er-do-well daughter of a former President, who is blackmailed into taking a job as the head of Los Angeles’ newly created Conviction Integrity Unit.” Morrison and a team of experts will investigate possible wrongful convictions. The series comes from Jessica Jones executive producer Liz Friedman and Liz Friedlander.
But if Atwell is playing Carter on Conviction, what happens to Agent Carter? So far, season two of the series has been pulling in low ratings, with an average viewership of 2.97 million. Compare that to the season one average of 5.02 million viewers.
However, even if Agent Carter is not cancelled, sources say Atwell can star in both series, since Agent Carter is a limited series and Conviction could be also.
What do you think? Do you think Agent Carter will be cancelled? Would you watch Hayley Atwell on Conviction?
