Since both shows belong to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, viewers were keen to see Hayley's character make a cameo - but it doesn't look like it is going to be the case. Replying to a fan's question about whether she will be appearing in Agents of SHIELD on Instagram, Hayley simply replied: "No," accompanied by a peace sign.

However, it's not all bad news for the TV show, as Enver Gjokaj, who starred in the critically acclaimed Agent Carter series, has reprised his role as Peggy's love interest and a SHIELD agent Daniel. Fans have also been working out what happened between him and Peggy in the show, with one writing: "Daniel Sousa checked himself in the mirror when he thought he was going to see Peggy which means a) he's still pining over her and b) THEY AREN'T TOGETHER ANYMORE #AgentsofSHIELD."

Of course, while the second and final season of Agent Carter saw Peggy and Daniel finally get together, Avengers: Endgame likely changed the outcome after Steve Rogers AKA Captain America travelled back in time to be reunited with her, and the film ended with the pair dancing in their home together. Sorry Daniel!
