As some of you may have already heard, Marvel’s Agent Carter‘s Hayley Atwell has signed on to star in the pilot for a new ABC show called Conviction. This has many raising the question, “Is Agent Carter about to get cancelled?”
While there is justified reason to be concerned, it has been stated that Atwell’s schedule will allow her to do both shows if Agent Carter is renewed for a third season (source: Variety.)
New show aside, we encourage you all to take a couple of minutes out of your schedule right now to contact ABC just to let them why you think Agent Carter is a valuable show and how much you want another season.

Some other things you can always do…
Re-watch Episodes Online!
Always rewatch the episodes online. Online views may not count in the overnight ratings but they are tracked and counted by ABC and as well as helping them see how many people are watching, it also brings in revenue through their displayed advertising. We have all the legal viewing links listed on our Watch Page.
Spread the Word
There seem to be two groups of viewers when it comes to Agent Carter, those who love it and those who haven’t seen it yet. It is of course important to remind the former that the show returns on Jan 19, but the second are perhaps the more important group, the ones that haven’t watched it yet because they either haven’t heard of it or just haven’t got around to it.
With this in mind. Talk to all of your friends, family members, work mates, school buddies, someone you’re sitting next to on the bus, anyone who will listen!
Ask them if they’ve seen it, You’ll be surprised how many people will decide to give a new show a go just because they hear others talking about it. Don’t get pushy but tell people why you think it’s worth watching, be passionate but polite.
