I'm sure that by now some Agent Carter fans have given up on seeing a third season of the series on ABC or any other network. One person who hasn't given up hope is Hayley Atwell, who plays Carter. Apparently, ABC wasn't ready to let go of the series when it ended. They were very optimistic that things would work out for it. A lot of people think that the reason the show ended was because Atwell took on the lead role in the series Conviction. That's not the case at all, though. According to the actress, ABC had plans to move forward with both series if Conviction got picked up. During an interview with Comic Book Resources, Atwell explained: "So when this pilot came about, ABC said, 'Well, this is not where we’re cancelling Agent Carter. This is a great new project. We really want you in the center of it. We want to see if it’s going to go.' And then, there were talks of, 'Do we do an Agent Carter special? Does [Conviction] not get picked up, and Agent Carter does? Does the opposite happen? Does neither of them happen? Will I be completely, like, jobless come summer?' All of that was a possibility, and you can only really focus on what’s right in front of you." But, the show ended up getting cancelled, which is news that Atwell and the show's fans took hard. The actress isn't giving up hope, though. She would love to continue it, and she is still pretty much begging Marvel and ABC to bring it back in some form. She went on to say: "I think they would have figured something out in terms of making a special, or waiting until we finish this season, and then we do something else with another network, perhaps. All I’m saying with that is, it’s still a much-loved show for the people involved in the making of it, and we know that the fans, it has a special place in their hearts. I would be very happy to go back to her if she became available. "... I would love it to be. I hound [Marvel Studios co-president Louis] D’Esposito on a regular basis, saying, 'Give me a movie! I think the great thing about Peggy is, we know from Winter Soldier that she lives a long life, so she can come back. I’m banking on, when I’m in my fifties, I’m like, 'This is the time. Let’s see what Peggy’s up to in this decade.'” It may not happen anytime soon, but one day it could happen, and it could focus on a different point in her life. I'm still holding on to hope. It's a crime that the series was cancelled to begin with.
