ABC Cancels "Agent Carter"

"Agent Carter" will not return for a third season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC has canceled the series.

Since star Hayley Atwell signed to ABC's new procedural "Conviction," her odds at filming both series was suspect, especially considering ABC's hopes for the new series. Additionally, the second season closed with series-low ratings, which further put the show's chances of renewal in jeopardy.

During the lead up to this decision, executive producer Tara Butters encouraged fans to Tweet their support for the show. Fans took to Twitter to show support for the cult favorite series, using the hashtag #RenewAgentCarter to urge ABC to renew the show.

"Agent Carter" season two concluded with a cliffhanger; one of the show's recurring characters, Chief Jack Thompson, was shot in his hotel by a mysterious figure in black, who took several forged documents that accuse Peggy of heinous war crimes. The finale also saw the demise of Whitney Frost and the first step in Peggy and Sousa's budding romantic relationship.

"Agent Carter" season two is now available for streaming on Amazon.
