Agent Carter Producer Says Show's Revival Wouldn't Work on Netflix

It's been several years since Agent Carter was canceled by ABC but fans are still hoping that we somehow get a third season, or, at the least, some kind of special that wraps up the loose plot threads from season two's cliffhanger ending. With Marvel dominating Netflix and a Disney streaming service coming soon, fans have been campaigning for a new online home for Agent Carter.

According to former producer Jose Molina, if the show is going to be revived it will not happen in Netflix.

Speaking with Den of Geek, Molina says that he would be flattered if Netflix does opt to bring in the popular Marvel show but feels that it wouldn't work for a number of reasons. One reason is that Netflix Marvel shows tend to be dark and gritty - or whatever Iron Fist was - and another is that they're all in the same timeline, whilst having a similar street hero vibe.

"It would be lovely to think that Netflix (home to so many awesome Marvel shows) would pick it up, but their shows all share a common universe and timeline that Carter doesn't share. Creatively, these shows tend to be very dark, and Agent Carter just doesn't have dark and brooding in its DNA."

Though the former is true, Agent Carter was more of a fun, pulpy series in the same spirit as Captain America: The First Avenger, the latter about being in a similar timeline is ridiculous. Agent Carter was in the same network as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. which not only started in the present but is also currently in a future setting.

Currently, fans can watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC, which will soon have its final season. As of this writing, there is no word on an Agent Carter revival.
