The upfronts keep on coming this week, and yesterday brought the unveiling of the new series coming to ABC for the 2016-2017 television season. Since ABC canceled a bunch of shows, including Agent Carter and Marvel’s Most Wanted, we’re interested to see what the network will be trying out this fall to find a new audience.
The new line-up of dramas at ABC includes the return of Agent Carter‘s Hayley Atwell to television in Conviction, Kiefer Sutherland becoming the president in Designated Survivor, and H.G. Wells chasing Jack the Ripper through modern day New York City in Time After Time. On the comedy side, we have some new shows featuring Jenna Elfman, Minnie Driver and Katy Mixon. We recently previewed a few short teasers for some of ABC’s new offerings, but today we have longer, meatier trailers.

Just last week, news surfaced that the chances of Agent Carter getting renewed for a third season were not looking good. In addition, the developing new show Marvel’s Most Wanted was no longer considered a lock for a series order. Today ABC brought the official word on both of the Marvel Studios television shows, and sadly, there’s no good news for either one.
ABC has confirmed the reports on Agent Carter canceled and they’re also not moving forward with Marvel’s Most Wanted. Find out more after the jump. Read More »
After finishing up its second season earlier this year, fans have been wondering if Agent Carter would return for a third season, especially since lead actress Hayley Atwell had landed another lead role in the courtroom drama Conviction, also on ABC. Reports said that the production schedule for each shows would have allowed her to do both, however, a new update indicates that Agent Carter may be retired after all.
In addition, there may be more bad news for fans hoping to see Marvel’s TV roster expand on network television as Marvel’s Most Wanted doesn’t sound like it’s guaranteed to get a series order as was once thought.

We’re looking forward to seeing Peggy (Hayley Atwell) punch all of L.A. in the next season of Agent Carter, but evidently not everyone is thrilled about the westward move. Jarvis (James D’Arcy), it turns out, hates sunny Southern California. Despises it. Absolutely loathes it. “You have no idea how foreign Los Angeles will seem to a civilized person such as yourself,” he complains to Peggy upon her arrival.
Not that he’s letting his reservations about his new home stop him from going on adventures within it. In fact, Jarvis practically begs Peggy to let him chauffeur her around the city in the first clip from Agent Carter Season 2. Watch it after the jump. Read More »

Kit Harington and Alicia Vikander star in Testament of Youth as friends, and potential lovers, who are separated by the insanity of the First World War. Based on the memoir by Vera Brittain, considered one of the primary accounts of the war from a woman’s perspective, the film follows the dawning independence of Brittain (Vikander), and the relationship she forges with her brother’s friend, played by Harington. In this Testament of Youth UK trailer we’re treated to some glowing pullquotes, but also to many visions of England and Europe during the years before and during the war. This is a much more effective look at the film than the last trailer we saw; have a look below. Read More »

Like so many of her sexist colleagues, we made the mistake of underestimating Peggy Carter when she first burst onto the scene. We enjoyed her in Captain America: The First Avenger, but assumed we wouldn’t see much more of her beyond the occasional flashback. Little did we know that in a few years time, she’d be headlining her very own series.
Said show, Agent Carter, is due to premiere in a few months, and Marvel is now ramping up its marketing efforts. The very first Agent Carter clip sets up the story: Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) is in danger, and he’s sending his pal Peggy (Hayley Atwell) and his butler Jarvis (James D’Arcy) on a mission to clear his name. Watch the Agent Carter clip after the jump.
Update: Marvel has announced the specific premiere dates for Agent Carter and the return of Agents of SHIELD. Find both below as well.
