It’s been a long road for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. When it first came on the scene last September, it was met with an initially mixed reaction. But, as with many projects that contain the Whedon name, over time, the Marvel television experiment become something really special. As we got deeper into the psychological trauma happening with Coulson and his cheating of death after The Avengers, the more interesting the character became to watch, especially as he led his team of agents that couldn’t be more different.

And now we can finally say, officially: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is coming back for a second season!

No, we’re not playing some evil Hydra trick on you, Team Coulson isn’t done just yet, and thank God — have you guys seen the craziness that’s happening out there? I mean, there’s man-things floating around somewhere, you guys. Man-Things!

But that’s not all!

So, remember that Agent Carter show that’s been floating around the ether? You know, the potential limited series event that would star Hayley Atwell as her infamous Captain America: The First Avenger character? Well, ABC has given it the official green light for next season as well. The exact premiere date of the series is currently TBD, but rumor is it will serve as a filler for the break Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will take between the fall and spring of next season.

Marvel isn’t giving up on network television; In fact, the studio doubled down on it. Are you excited? Tell us below!
