Agent Carter Canceled at ABC – ‘Marvel’s Most Wanted’ Not Moving Forward
Well, ABC has killed Agent Carter and before people start asking Netflix or a cable channel to pick it up Hayley Atwell has already gotten the lead role on the new ABC show Conviction.
What that tells you is the decision to kill Carter was made a while ago probably.
The show was a fan and critical favorite but it appears that this and even the connections to the huge money making Marvel film universe wasn’t enough to save it from getting canceled.
Part of the reason is also the new entertainment president, Channing Dungey and her making her mark on the network calling a lot of shows and renewing selectively. Deadline.com details her and her decisions in cancelling Carter, Castle, The Muppets, The Family and others.
I think cancelling the summer hit Agent Carter is a dumb move but in smart news, ABC has killed the Agents Of Shield spin off starring Adrianne Palicki: Marvel’s Most Wanted.
I never understood why anyone thought this was a good idea. Why spin off characters from a so-so show? What exactly was going to be different about this show from Agents of SHIELD? The Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter characters are fine as supporting characters on SHIELD but I don’t think they could carry a show.
Sure, I enjoy Adrianne Palicki in tight shirts as much as the next person but can you build a show around that?
The official plot of “Marvel’s Most Wanted” went something like this:
Centers on Bobbi Morse (a.k.a. Mockingbird) and Lance Hunter of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., two ex-spies and ex-spouses who are on the run with no friends, no S.H.I.E.L.D. and a long list of enemies looking to claim a bounty on their heads. Able to trust no one but each other, Bobbi and Hunter form an uneasy alliance with Dominic Fortune, a rogue adventurer with a wealth of resources and even more adversaries, who agrees to protect them so long as they help him with his own agenda. These two heroes will help anyone in need, all while trying to uncover the conspiracy that put their own lives in jeopardy.
