Marvel spin-off Agents of SHIELD has been reportedly picked up by ABC.

Update (3): Looks like the video linked to by Gregg has been pulled down. Make of this what you will.

Update (2): Star Clark Gregg has tweeted out a link to a supposed teaser for the show, featuring The Hulk. All bets are off as to its authenticity, but we'll let you decide for yourself.

Update: Official word has not come down yet but a full series pickup is expected tomorrow, according to Entertainment Weekly

The first promo for it is reported to air during the Once Upon a Time finale, according to a tweet from SitcomsOnline:


  • Tim

    YES this is one of the few ABC announcements ive been waiting for (the others are Big Thunder and Super Fun Night) so I’m very happy!

    By the way…can someone say ‘FINALLY, ABC!!’

  • MichaelChickless

    Dang, I may have to break my own rules against ever watching anything again on ABC.

  • Brittany Reid

    I LOVE ABC, They have the best shows on network t.v. #Castle, #Scandal, #GreysAnatomy, and know #AgentsOfShield *DEAD*

  • r0ckmypants

    I actually wouldn’t mind if this was put on Thursdays at 8. If anything was going to really compete in that slot, this would be it.

  • Don Juan

    hmm I thought this was actually picked up quite a while back.

    I can’t, for the life of me, understand why ABC has been so high on this for ages now… I expect it to die a quick death wherever it lands. It better not displace Revenge!

  • Ram510

    Great pick up ABC!

  • rob60990

    This was sure to get picked up.

    ABC passed on King John so Malibu Country’s chances of renewal are looking up.

  • Dante

    If this gets the Sunday @9 slot, where would ABC put Revenge? Fridays?

  • forg

    finally ABC news

  • John A

    My head is spining with all renewels and cancelations.

  • Ultima


  • SJ


    Now that’s just sad…

  • chrisss

    @ SJ

    Because it’s a spin off of a film that made $1.5 billion?

  • Ultima

    I can’t, for the life of me, understand why ABC has been so high on this for ages now…

    So that Disney can keep the director of their mega-blockbuster film series happy?

  • Cass

    The fall show I’m looking forward to most is Shield! :D

    Now renew Castle, The Middle, Modern Family and OUAT and you’ll really make me glad to forget the sad cancellation of Touch.

    Castle is renewed for two seasons. And if it makes you feel better, Kiefer Sutherland is in talks for a limited 24 series next season, so he’s still going to be on the Fox small screen!

  • Barb

    Wow, actual news on the ABC front. It’s beyond ridiculous how they haven’t renewed anything yet. Glad about SHIELD though – hopefully it’ll get a great timeslot.

  • Stella


    I can’t wait for the trailer Sunday then! :D

  • serendipity’s last stand

    Lol Deeageaux I loves me some nerdy men not the boys but the men so I root for all the comicy type shows and scifi to. I knew my hubby was the one when he quoated star wars and the original bsg on our first date.
