ABC has cancelled Marvel’s Agent Carter starring Hayley Atwell after two seasons.

Hayley Atwell fans need not worry too much though, as the network has also given a series order to Atwell’s new project Conviction.

Written by Liz Friedman, Conviction follows lawyer and former First Daughter Hayes Morrison (Atwell) who is about to accept a job offer from her sexy nemesis, NY District Attorney Wayne Wallis, to avoid jail time for cocaine possession and avoid hurting her mother’s Senate campaign. Working with his team at the new Conviction Integrity Unit will let her use her brilliant mind to turn over cases where there is credible suspicion of wrongful conviction, and give her a chance to turn things around with her high-powered political family.

Conviction also stars Eddie Cahill, Shawn Ashmore, Merrin Dungey, Emily Kinney, Manny Montana, and Daniel DiTomasso.

Here at Inside Media Track we’re sad to say goodbye to the kickass Peggy Carter, who has also appeared in the Captain America, Avengers and Ant-Man movies, which began with rave reviews. The cancellation is a first for the Marvel live action franchise. The series airs on FOX in the UK.
