The good news is Agent Carter is finally set to premiere next month on 7flix.
The bad news…. it’s just been axed in the US.
The series features the Marvel Comics character Peggy Carter, a secret agent and single woman in 1940s America, with Hayley Atwell reprising her role from Captain America.
Earlier this year readers voted it the unaired international show they most wanted to see in the annual TV Tonight Awards, doubtless due to the delays in its launch. S1 premiered in the US in January 2015, with S2 this January. It’s understood discussions to screen on Foxtel were not ultimately realised.
This week ABC announced the series would not be proceeding to a third season, but Seven will have 18 episodes all up.
It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Peggy Carter (Captain America’s Hayley Atwell) a serious blow as she finds herself marginalised when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers.
Updated: It launches with a double episode, 8:30pm Monday June 20 on 7flix.
