Will there be another season of Marvel’s Agent Carter? Star Hayley Atwell certainly hopes so. The actress recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the future of Agent Carter and her new ABC drama, Conviction.
The season two finale of Agent Carter airs tonight on ABC.
In the interview, Atwell said the season two finale will be “satisfying” for fans, but it will also leave the door open for more seasons:
There’s a balance with how it ends. There’s enough of a cliffhanger to suggest that that’s where we’ll go forward if the show gets picked up again. But things are nicely wrapped up in a way that I think the audience will find very satisfying. The audience won’t feel frustrated. If anything, they’ll come away satisfied but also curious as to what happens beyond, because thanks to all the Marvel films she has appeared in, we know that Peggy’s life goes on and she lives quite an extraordinary life and a long life. So there’s always room to revisit her in different ways, different decades and different ages.”
Atwell also said if Agent Carter is renewed for a third season, it won’t conflict with her new role in ABC’s legal drama, Conviction:
That’s something ABC has talked about a lot [with me]. If [Conviction and Agent Carter season three] both got picked up, then we’d work out some way where I could do both.”
She added that ABC has still not announced whether Agent Carter is renewed or cancelled:
I don’t know the details of how that would work or when it would happen. But they said that in the same sentence when they offered me Conviction which I was very flattered to get. But they also said this doesn’t actually mean anything yet for Agent Carter. So we’re just out in limbo in that respect.”
What do you think? Do you watch Marvel’s Agent Carter? Do you want a third season?
