Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been given a series order on ABC. The Network will air a First Look at the series this Sunday, May 12 (Mother's Day) at 8:00pm, just before the season finale of Once Upon a Time.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistic Directorate) is based on the Marvel comics' secret intelligence organization that has appeared in most of the Marvel Phase One films, and had a heavy presence in last year's box office hit Marvel's The Avengers. Director and writer of that film, Joss Whedon, has directed and co-written the Pilot with his brother Jed Whedon and Jed's wife, Maurissa Tancharoen.
Starring in the series are Ming-Na as Agent Melinda May, Clark Gregg, who reprises his role as Agent Phil Coulson, Brett Dalton as gruff rising star Agent Grant Ward, Elizabeth Henstridge as science whiz Agent Gemma Simmons and Iain DeCaestecker as tech guru Agent Leo Fitz, with Chloe Bennet set as Skye, a superhero-obsessed woman.
The series doesn't have a set premiere date, but its expected to be announced as part of the Fall 2013 line-up on ABC.
