ABC Studios and Marvel Television are officially moving forward with the TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The spin-off show will follow a select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization we’ve seen in nearly all the Marvel movies to date.
Clark Gregg will return as Agent Phil Coulson (I’m sure his non-death will be explained) and the show will follow the team as they “investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary.”
Watch the trailer below:
Coulson’s 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).
The Avengers director Joss Whedon will executive produce and he wrote and directed the pilot episode which will air in September 2013. Will you be watching?
