‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Renewed for Season 2’
One of the most highly anticipated shows of the past TV season, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is back!
Despite lower-than-expected ratings, Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team of agents will return in the 2014-15 season.
S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t the only superhero show to join ABC’s new lineup — Marvel will have two shows hitting the small screen. Agent Carter, which is inspired by Captain America‘s short one-shot from the Iron Man 3 DVD, has been given the green light, ordered straight to series.

Agent Carter stars British actress Hayley Atwell who starred as Peggy Carter in the Captain America movies as Chris Evans‘ love interest. She is also set to appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Agent Carter will be a short-order series and likely used as a ‘bridge show’ to air during the second season hiatus of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, with both series ultimately being tied-in together,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The series, set in 1946, will follow Peggy, as she tries to navigate the single life, after losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers (aka Captain America), while balancing secret missions. Watch Hayley kick ass in this clip (below) from Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.
