Is 'Agent Carter' Getting Axed? Hayley Atwell Lands Lead Role on New ABC Drama

Marvel is rumored to cancel the Peggy Carter series after the main star is cast to headline a new TV project called 'Conviction'.

AceShowbiz - Rumors are swirling on the internet, suggesting that "Marvel's Agent Carter" may get canceled after sophomore season. Such reports surfaces after the main actress, Hayley Atwell, is signed on for a lead role on ABC's new legal drama pilot called "Conviction".

On the new project, she is set to play a "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."

Revolving around Peggy Carter first introduced in 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger", "Agent Carter" is currently airing season 2 and has been struggling with ratings. If the show is scrapped, it will be Marvel's first cancellation among the company's thriving TV projects like "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", "Daredevil", and "Marvel's Jessica Jones".
