Nerd Reactor is reporting that an inside source at ABC has indicated that Marvel’s Agent Carter will be renewed for a third season.
Neither Marvel nor ABC Entertainment have made an official announcement, although Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, which also airs on ABC, got an early renewal for a 4th season last week.
Agent Carter has struggled in the ratings for its first two season. Nerd Reactor says, “Episode 8 and 9 aired back-to-back last week with just 2.5 million viewers and had a 0.7 rating for adults 18-49. The finale was the lowest of the season with 2.35 million viewers. (Last year’s finale had 4.02 million viewers with a 1.3 rating for adults 18-49.)”
There’s lots of material that Marvel could explore for a third season of Agent Carter. And we hope Hayley Atwell gets to reprise this iconic role. She recently shared her ideas on where the show could go in future seasons.
