The future is rarely ever set in stone when it comes to TV, so getting attached to series that aren’t ratings juggernauts and don’t yet have a renewal order is a risky business. Midseason shows’ futures are often especially uncertain, and one that definitely deserves another season is ABC’s Agent Carter.

Agent Carter premiered in January of 2015, airing on Tuesdays to fill a Marvel block while Agents of S.H.I..E.L.D. was on hiatus. What not all of us may have expected was that Carter would turn out to be a fantastic little show in its own right, starring Peggy Carter of Captain America fame as she worked to set up S.H.I.E.L.D. in the 1940s. Her adventures in Season 2 proved that Peggy had what it takes to lead an ongoing series. With the future of Agent Carter currently up in the air, the time is now to reflect on all the reasons why the show needs to return for Season 3. So, join me in crossing my fingers for a third season and take a look at nine reasons why it has to happen.

Hayley Atwell
Hayley Atwell Rocks
Hayley Atwell originated the role of Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger as Steve Rogers’ wartime love interest. While Peggy was more than competent in fighting the forces of Hydra, her primary role in the narrative was in providing half of the requisite romance. She was definitely written better than Jane of the Thor movies, but she never would have been so unforgettable as to warrant her own series if not for Hayley Atwell. She tackles every aspect of the kick-ass Peggy Carter with enthusiasm. She phones nothing in, and she brings her all in everything from actions sequences to emotional epiphanies to pithy one-liners. The entire cast of Agent Carter has been excellent, but Atwell carries the show, and she’s always worth watching as Peggy.
