The long-rumored Agent Carter series may be a step closer to reality now. Deadline is reporting that since a pilot for the series technically exists (the Agent Carter short on the Iron Man 3 Blu-Ray), ABC may be giving the show a straight-to-series order. They’re also saying that the pickup for Carter would come along with a second season renewal for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. That would put two Marvel series on the network, and could potentially make a cool Tuesday night with a two-hour Marvel block.
Agent Carter is a perfect choice for a second Marvel TV series. The short on the Iron Man 3 disc was awesome, and then you have the Captain America element which will definitely boost it a bit. They even established Peggy Carter helping to found S.H.I.E.L.D. in The Winter Soldier in case someone didn’t see the short the series would be based on.
Hopefully official news comes out soon.
