ABC’s short-lived period drama “Agent Carter” remains one of the best received Marvel small screen properties in recent years, but sadly even the show’s former leading lady Hayley Atwell recently made comments suggesting she had seemingly given up on any chance of a revival of the property or herself returning to the role.
With Comic Con shortly upon us, producer and writer Jose Molina spoke with Den of Geek about his time on the show and he revealed what plans they had in store for the third season had they continued with it:
“If memory serves, the initial thrust was going to come from the investigation into the assassination attempt on Jack Thompson. We were hoping (assuming we could afford it) that the story would then lead us to London, where we would learn that Peggy’s late brother Michael was not only alive and kicking, but involved in some very nefarious, super-villainous shenanigans.”
Molina also discussed why he thinks “Agent Carter” wouldn’t be suitable for a revival on a streaming service like Netflix:
“It would be lovely to think that Netflix would pick it up, but their shows all share a common universe and timeline that Carter doesn’t share. Creatively, these shows tend to be very dark, and Agent Carter just doesn’t have dark and brooding in its DNA.”
“Agent Carter” wrapped its run in early 2016 with eighteen episodes ultimately produced. The finale marked Atwell’s final appearance in the role outside of her voicing it in the “Avengers Assemble” cartoon. She’ll next be seen in Disney’s “Christopher Robin” film opening later this Summer.
