Netflix Passes on Agent Carter

Despite a petition gathering over 125,000 signatures, Netflix has decided against renewing Agent Carter after ABC canceled it in May. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly at the Television Critics Association press tour, chief content officer Ted Sarandos said,
We’re looking for truly original brands to own and in that Marvel space we already have – so that was mostly why. They also have some output deal complexities. So when you pick it up, being able to pick it up globally is difficult even after it’s canceled. Some of those output partners still had it on the air, so they would argue its covered by their output. Unfortunately, it was a business decision more than a creative one.
