Hayley Atwell fighting for Agent Carter Season 3


ABC broke the hearts of Agent Carter fans last month when it canceled the Marvel drama after just two seasons. Now, less than a month later, star Hayley Atwell is giving loyal viewers hope.

Appearing at a fan convention in Florida recently, the British actress expressed optimism and hope that Peggy Carter's story wasn't over.

"There was talk of season three, which would have delved into her past a little bit more," Atwell said. "The showrunners were talking about a possible twist, I suppose, into something to do with my family."

"They suggested that it would be all to do with my brother," she added, before raising fans' hopes even more with the idea of a Peggy Carter standalone movie.

Would she be open to doing more Agent Carter then? For Atwell, there was only one answer.

"Yeah, 100 percent. Absolutely," she said without hesitation.

"I love Peggy. I love the people working on this project together," Atwell continued. "The fans are incredibly warm and welcoming, and it'd be an absolute privilege and honor to bring her back for fans."

Even with Atwell already locked up for a new fall show, ABC's legal drama Conviction, she was adamant that if Agent Carter was indeed saved, she'd do anything to make it work logistically.

"I'd shoot on the weekends. Blue serum. Whatever it takes," she said.

Back in January, Atwell sat down with ET to talk about Agent Carter and the lasting effect Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, had on Peggy.

"He will always be a part of her in the sense that he taught her so much about how to conduct herself and to fight with purpose and determination, even if it means sacrificing yourself. That's what she'll take with her," she said.
