No word yet on a premiere date or an episode count for the season, but check back here for those updates. In the meantime, ABC has also released three new images and character shots for the upcoming series (which you can see in our gallery) and a short teaser for Agent Coulson’s new friend, “Lola.” Check those out below.
Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvels feature films as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary.
Coulsons team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
From Executive Producers Joss Whedon (Marvels The Avengers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer); Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot co-writers (Dollhouse, Dr.Horribles Sing-Along Blog); Jeffrey Bell (Angel, Alias); and Jeph Loeb (Smallville) comes Marvels first TV series. Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.
