ABC will be debuting the comedy Galavant on Sunday, January 4, 2015 at 8pm ET/PT and the new action series Marvel’s Agent Carter on January 6th at 9pm ET/PT. The network also announced Once Upon a Time will be back after its midseason break on March 1, 2015 and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return to the primetime schedule on March 3rd.

The Thursday night schedule of Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, and Grey’s Anatomy will be back in place beginning January 29th.

Here’s the details on the two new shows, courtesy of ABC:

Galavant – Screenwriter/executive producer Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love, Tangled) unites with Broadway and Hollywood award-winning musical team—composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast) and lyricist Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid, Tangled). Once upon a time, the dashing hero, Galavant (Joshua Sasse), lost the love of his life, Madalena (Mallory Jansen), to the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson). Now, our fallen hero is ready to take revenge and restore his “happily ever after.” But it won’t be without a few twists and turns along the way.

Marvel’s Agent Carter – It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field, putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – aka Captain America. When old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger) finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy — the only person he can trust — to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name. He empowers his butler, Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy), to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for releasing these weapons of mass destruction. If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse.
