This is not the Hollywood Ending fans have mind. Marvel’s Agent Carter is in danger of being cancelled by ABC. Executive producer Michele Fazekas told EW the chances for a third season are “bad.” The “Hollywood Ending” season two finale could end up being Agent Carter’s TV series finale.
If there is a third season, Fazekas tells EW that there has been talk of sending Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter to London. They might keep her in L.A. though, or even send her back to New York. The cast also includes James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, Enver Gjokaj as Chief Daniel Sousa, Wynn Everett as Whitney Frost, Reggie Austin as Jason Wilkes, and Chad Michael Murray as Chief Jack Thompson.
Here is more on Marvel’s Agent Carter’s chance of a third season, from EW’s interview with EPs Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters:
[SPOILERS for Marvel’s Agent Carter, “Hollywood Ending” season two, episode 10.]
How do you feel about the show’s chances for a third season?
FAZEKAS: Bad. People have to watch the show. While I would love to see it continue on, it’s a bummer — a bummer for all of us, cast included. Everybody loves the job, everybody loves working together. I would love to see it live on, even if it’s in some other form, digital or whatever. I doubt that there’s a Netflix play for it. We’re not really involved in those decisions anyway. At the end of the day, people have to watch the show.
Would you consider a way to wrap up the story somehow?
FAZEKAS: Sure. It’s interesting because that episode feels like — except for the fact that we plugged Thompson — a nice little conclusion, which wasn’t the intent. If they wanted us to do anything, we would do it. We absolutely love it.
In the season two finale of Marvel’s Agent Carter Peggy needs Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) to eliminate Zero Matter. The gang faces a mission from which they might not return. Manfredi (Ken Marino) works with the white hats to free Whitney from the Dark Matter and send it back through the rift, which they are able to close, because of Sousa. Whitney goes insane. Jack is shot in the chest. In one less grim bit of news, Sousa and Peggy smooch.
Do you agree that the second season finale offered a “nice little conclusion” to Marvel’s Agent Carter TV show? Should ABC cancel the series, or renew it for a third season? Let us know, below.
