Nashville and Agent Carter have been cancelled

The show's haven't been included in ABC's 15 show renewal announcement

Television shows Nashville and Agent Carter have been cancelled, after Nashville’s four season run and Agent Carter’s two seasons.

Nashville, produced by Lionsgate, was not included in ABC’s 15 show renewal announcement. It stars Connie Britton, who also produced the show.

Co-star Hayden Panettiere had recently taken an absence of leave following the birth of her first child. According to Billboard, Britton had spoken out about an anti-LGBT law passed in Tennessee where the show was filmed. This may be a factor in its cancellation.



Nashville had secured My So-Called Life writers Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick for season five and was set to hit its 100th episode. Currently, the show has only two episodes left to air, with the final set to be screened on May 25.

Marvel’s Agent Carter starred Hayley Atwell and was created by Civil War and Captain America: The Winter Soldier screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. ABC have also left the show out of its 15 show renewal announcement.

According to Collider, Agent Carter failed to impress audiences due to lacklustre pacing and storytelling issues. Series two saw the show move to Los Angeles in a Post WWII world.
