Here’s another series you don’t have to worry about getting all caught up in only to have the rug pulled out from under your feet: ABC has given a full season order to the new action drama Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. The series, created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, has been picked up for a full season as confirmed today by ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is the number one new show among adults 18-49, so giving it a full season pick up couldn’t have been a difficult decision to make for the network.
The series stars Clark Gregg back from the dead as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons.
The series begins where Marvel’s The Avengers left off. It’s just after the battle of New York, and now that the existence of super heroes and aliens has become public knowledge, the world is trying to come to grips with this new reality. Agent Phil Coulson is back in action and now has his eye on a mysterious group called The Rising Tide. In order to track this unseen, unknown enemy, he has assembled a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division).
The S.H.I.E.L.D. team has a mission: To investigate the new, the strange and the unknown around the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary.
