Netflix Not Picking Up Agent Carter: Here’s Why

With Marvel TV already having five series on Netflix (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Defenders), and with ABC recently cancelling Agent Carter, some have thought it a good idea that Agent Carter could be renewed over at Netflix.

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos explained to why Agent Carter won’t be coming to their streaming service.

“We’re looking for truly original brands to own,” Sarandos said. “And in that Marvel space we already have [original comic book shows] – so that was mostly why.”

Sarandos also offered it’s about legal matters, such as distribution, than not liking the Agent Carter product.

 “They also have some output deal complexities,” Sarando added. “So when you pick it up, being able to pick it up globally is difficult even after it’s canceled. Some of those output partners still had it on the air, so they would argue its covered by their output [deals]. Unfortunately, it was a business decision more than a creative one.”

While ABC did cancel Agent Carter, the good news is that if you are a Hayley Atwell fan, she can still be seen on ABC in her new series, Conviction.


Agent Carter Gets Cancelled

ABC has cancelled the Marvel Agent Carter TV series following two seasons.

The news shouldn’t be all that surprising as ratings weren’t that good. In addition, a few weeks ago it became known star of Agent Carter, Hayley Atwell, signed on for another ABC series, which has been green lit with Conviction.

Conviction will air for the 2016-17 season and is described as:

Atwell stars as a lawyer and the former First Daughter Hayes Morrison, who is about to accept a job offered from her sexy nemesis, NY District Attorney Wayne Wallis (Eddie Cahill), to avoid jail time for cocaine possession and avoid hurting her mother’s Senate campaign. Working with his team at the new Conviction Integrity Unit will let her use her brilliant mind to turn over cases where there is credible suspicion of wrongful conviction, and give her a chance to turn things around with her high-powered political family.

Update: ABC has also cancelled the Agents of SHIELD spinoff, Marvel’s Most Wanted.

Agent Carter Likely To Be Cancelled As Hayley Atwell Is Set To Star In Another ABC Series


It’s being reported Hayley Atwell is set to star as the the lead of another ABC series, the legal drama Conviction, which means the Agent Carter Marvel series is likely done for.

Deadline reports ABC has tapped Atwell for the lead in Conviction, noting it doesn’t look likely Agent Carter will return for a third season.

It is noted that if (and it sounds like a big if) Agent Carter does get picked up for a third season, ABC sources indicate there is a scenario in which Atwell could possibly do both shows (possibly as limited runs).

It’s further noted that the casting of Hayley Atwell in a new ABC series means more than likely Agent Carter is not getting renewed, but that the network doesn’t want to lose the actress as “they want to keep its star on its roster of leading ladies.”

While Agent Carter has been said to be only averaging around 2.9 million viewers, it has been said to have good DVR viewings.

Conviction is described as: The story of Carter Morrison (Atwell), 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. She, along with her team of lawyers, investigators and forensic experts, work together to examine cases where there’s credible suspicion that the wrong person may have been convicted of a crime.


ABC Airing Captain America Special Before Agent Carter Premiere


ABC has announced that a one hour special, Marvel’s Captain America: 75 Heroic Years, will air on Tuesday, January 19th at 8pm ET, which will be followed by the Season 2 premiere of Agent Carter.

The full announcement can be found below.

Marvel Studios also has Captain America: Civil War opening May 6, 2016.


ABC Celebrates Iconic Hero in the Original Special “Marvel’s Captain America: 75 Heroic Years,” January 19




From his first appearance in 1941 through the 75 years that would follow, Captain America has been one of, if not the most, influential comic book characters ever to be created. Take a look back at the history of this beloved Marvel character and see how his influence continues to have impact today in the original special “Marvel’s Captain America: 75 Heroic Years,” airing TUESDAY, JANUARY 19 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EST) on the ABC Television Network.

New York, 1940. A new era on the horizon. Little did the world know then that this decade would shape the course of history in ways never before seen. But two men, who walked those New York streets, a pair of artists and creators, had a strong feeling of what was to come. They were Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, two first-generation Jewish-Americans who believed in their country, believed that the atrocities taking place in Europe needed to be answered, and most importantly, they believed in freedom. And it was an image of freedom that they would create…

Captain America has been the moral compass that has inspired generations to do better and believe in more than themselves. Whether it be leading The Avengers or fighting for his beliefs, even when it meant taking sides against those closest to him during Marvel’s Civil War, “Cap” has been a beacon of light in the Marvel Universe and a central figure in the vast and dynamic world that Marvel fans know and celebrate today.

This special, one-hour event follows the history of Captain America from 1941 to present and explores how the character has been a reflection of the changing times and the world he has existed in throughout the years. Fans will hear from various Marvel luminaries including Stan Lee, Joe Quesada, Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Jeph Loeb, Louis D’Esposito, Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell, as well as family members of Cap’s creators. “Marvel’s Captain America: 75 Heroic Years” will also unveil an exclusive announcement from Marvel Comics.

“Marvel’s Captain America: 75 Heroic Years” is directed by Zak Knutson and produced by Bow and Arrow Entertainment. Executive producers on the project include Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory, John Cerilli. Harry Go, Matthew Perniciaro, Michael Sherman and Matthew Mandarino. The special will be broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format with a 5.1 channel surround sound. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to the airdate.

Here’s the description for the third season of SHIELD:

…the series will begin introducing new friends and foes inspired by the critically acclaimed SECRET WARRIORS comic series as well as the Inhuman Lash.

In the aftermath of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s battle with Jiaying and the Inhumans, Director Coulson will search the world for more powered people and assemble an extraordinary new team to deal with threats unlike the world has ever seen. However, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will soon find out they’re not the only ones tracking down these new Inhumans.

Description for Agent Carter Season 2:

Carol Danvers Captain Marvel Gets Agent Carter Creative Team & New Look


Following the news of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s departure from the Carol Danvers Captain Marvel series, Marvel has announced a new creative team, which will consist of the showrunners behind the Agent Carter TV series.

Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas will be the writers on the new Captain Marvel #1 that launches following Secret Wars, with Kris Anka on as artist.

Fast Company revealed details and the new look of Carol Danvers which includes an altered costume and a short new hair cut.

• The new series begins eight months after the end of Secret Wars.

• The new mission has Captain Marvel as Earth’s first line of defense against extraterrestrial threats.

• S.W.O.R.D. will not be around post-Secret Wars.

• Carol comes upon a ghost ship, with no crew or dead crew, with the first six issues dealing with the fact that it’s not a coincidence that the ship is headed towards Earth and Captain Marvel.

• Carol is really meant to be a soldier and a commander, and also a diplomat; the series is rooted in Earth but also an extension into the galaxy.

Regarding the new costume and hair cut:

 “We’ve slightly modified her costume to kind of reflect her new status quo,” says Butters. “There’s been a lot of controversy about Carol Danvers’ haircut. We really wanted to make sure it was consistent and streamlined. Last year I think a lot of people couldn’t get her hairstyle—sometimes it was short, sometimes it was long—so we went in and designed exactly what she would look like. Kris really wanted to go shorter, because he felt it aligned with what her new look is all about.”

“She’s military,” added Fazekas. “She’s not going to have this huge mane of hair. It needs to be practical.”
