Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” can breathe a little easier, seeing as they have just earned a little job security.
ABC announced Thursday that it has ordered a full season of the series, Marvel’s first primetime drama, according to “The Hollywood Reporter.”
“S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson, a role he originated on the big screen smash “The Avengers.”
“ER” alum Ming-Na Wen also stars, along with newcomers Brett Dalton, Elizabeth Henstridge and Chloe Bennet.
Notably, the series debuted to the top drama premiere on any network since ABC’s since-cancelled “V” in 2009.
“How I Met Your Mother” star Cobie Smulders had a cameo as Agent Maria Hill in the pilot, while Samuel L. Jackson appeared as Nick Fury in a post-credits sequence from episode 2.
It’s been a tough fall for ABC, which made the fall’s first cancellation with “Lucky 7.” “Betrayal” is hanging by a thread on Sunday nights, while “Trophy Wife” and “The Goldbergs” have seen significant ratings declines.
“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” airs Tuesdays at 8pm on ABC. Are you excited about the prospect of 22 episodes of “S.H.I.E.L.D.”?
