THR has confirmed what many had expected: Marvel’s Agent Carter is officially canceled.

The Hayley Atwell Marvel series lasted for two short seasons. It was well received by critics but the ratings were probably not what ABC would have liked, especially for Season 2. To learn more about the fate of the fictional Peggy Carter, you might want to go see the movie Captain America: Civil War to find out where her story ends.

As for Hayley Atwell, her new drama Conviction has been picked up by ABC, so we’ll still be seeing her on TV. Here’s how they describe it:

Lawyer and former First Daughter Hayes Morrison (Atwell) is about to accept a job offered from her sexy nemesis, NY District Attorney Wayne Wallis, to avoid jail time for cocaine possession and avoid hurting her mother’s Senate campaign. Working with his team at the new Conviction Integrity Unit will let her use her brilliant mind to turn over cases where there is credible suspicion of wrongful conviction, and give her a chance to turn things around with her high-powered political family.

In addition to Atwell, Conviction stars Eddie Cahill as Wayne Wallis, Shawn Ashmore as Sam Sullivan, Merrin Dungey as Maxine, Emily Kinney as Tess Thompson, Manny Montana as Franklin “Frankie” Rios and Daniel DiTomasso as Jackson Morrison.

Co-created by writer Liz Friedman (Elementary, Marvel’s Jessica Jones), and director Liz Friedlander (The Following), Conviction will be executive produced by Mark Gordon (“Criminal Minds,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Saving Private Ryan”). “Conviction” is from The Mark Gordon Company and ABC Studios.
