Marvel's AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Renewed; AGENT CARTER Gets Series Order

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s numbers have been steady for a while now, while fans have been loving it since the Captain America: The Winter Soldier tie-in. Well, it's got a second season, and it won't be alone as the Hayley Atwell led Agent Carter has also been picked up by ABC!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. lost a lot of viewers early on, but like Arrow before it, the series soon began to increase in quality. It was a little late by then to regain the viewers already lost, but numbers have been steady and a second season has now been confirmed by ABC. However, another Marvel property will be joining it this Fall as the network has revealed that they're finally bringing Agent Carter to the small screen, with Hayley Atwell attached to star. Below is the official logline for the series, and well, it sounds pretty damned good! What do you guys think?

It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers.

Hahaha! Suck it Wilding!!!

Amazing. Show got miraculously better over time. This, Arrow, Flash, Gothem, Walking Dead, and Constantine, it truly is a great time to be a Comic Book fan.

[frick] this
WYLEEJAY - 5/8/2014, 7:38 PM
@Wyleejay. Dude.......was that necessary?
staypuffed - 5/8/2014, 7:38 PM
Stopped watching SHIELD but Agent Carter sounds interesting.
WYLEEJAY - 5/8/2014, 7:39 PM
@Wyleejay. Lol. Yep.

Not interested in AC.
KarolosPrime - 5/8/2014, 7:41 PM
Okay then!!?
Destined - 5/8/2014, 7:41 PM
Looking forward to Agent Carter, Hayley is gold. And AOS needs to start and remain strong next season. More for Marvel!
ezio619 - 5/8/2014, 7:41 PM
oh cool, man i need to really catch up on the past 10 episodes also agent carter picked up,hellz yeah, love me some hayley atwell
AlexanderLykins - 5/8/2014, 7:42 PM
Now just make these shows good.
WYLEEJAY - 5/8/2014, 7:42 PM
Im loving this show. Can't wait to see what happens season 2. This probably means that season 1 will definitely end on a cliffhanger leading to the next season. I just hope they dont wait that long to give us answers on Skyes parentage.
Ignition - 5/8/2014, 7:44 PM
Budget is going to get slashed though. Hopefully, Agent Carter is much better.
Spidey91 - 5/8/2014, 7:45 PM this picked-up series day or what? :P
janitra - 5/8/2014, 7:46 PM
Josh isn't bashing AoS in his article? That's new.
CaptainObvious - 5/8/2014, 7:47 PM
I'm not going to continue watching AoS after next week's finale. I'm sorry, but none of the characters are compelling to me. I will be checking out Agent Carter, though.
DrDoom - 5/8/2014, 7:47 PM
Second season of AOS and Agent Carter gets picked up?

ComicFan523 - 5/8/2014, 7:47 PM
Glad Agents of SHIELD got renewed. Agent Carter looks interesting. Seems that every show I watch nowadays is getting a spinoff.
soforizo - 5/8/2014, 7:50 PM

AOS was never in doubt in my mind. Agent Carter is on the bubble for me, same as DC's Gotham, iZOMBIE and Preacher; but i'll check them all out. It's incredible that comic books shows batted 1.000 with all shows being picked up.

CharlesLord - 5/8/2014, 7:51 PM
well who didnt see this coming? lol
blackandyellow - 5/8/2014, 7:51 PM
Agent Carter is basically Gotham set 70 years ago. Not interested in either show.
soforizo - 5/8/2014, 7:52 PM
It would be nice for Agent Carter need to reference Hank Pym, Zola, Howling Commandos, and even a Winter Soldier cameo (unlikely, but would be awesome).
Chewtoy - 5/8/2014, 7:52 PM
Nice... I'm looking forward to them following up that Zodiac reference they dropped in the Agent Carter short.
Mercwitham0uth - 5/8/2014, 7:53 PM
Awww Yiss

Mego - 5/8/2014, 7:54 PM
The Agent Carter series needs to feature an all nude Carter. And Agents Of Shield needs Skye to go all nude next year.
KingOnslaught - 5/8/2014, 7:55 PM
Good news
Asterisk - 5/8/2014, 7:57 PM
Agent Carter was one of the only things I liked in TFA.

Not interested in the show. Interested in Atwell though...

ComicsBornAndBred - 5/8/2014, 7:57 PM
Where can AOS go??? Happy but surprised. AC I'm exited for. Hayley Atwell one hour a week...yes!! He's beautiful and a grey actress
ThePowerCosmic - 5/8/2014, 7:59 PM
Yes! For AoS!

Forget agent Carter...just get me Daredevil.
19001560 - 5/8/2014, 7:59 PM
FINALLY! [frick] YES!
soforizo - 5/8/2014, 7:59 PM

If you don't care for it, stay away. Trolling is never welcomed.
ThePowerCosmic - 5/8/2014, 7:59 PM
Hayley is gorgeous though!
SpiderFraud - 5/8/2014, 8:00 PM
Out of all the possible comic book shows that can be done, we get Agent Carter...lame.
ezio619 - 5/8/2014, 8:00 PM
THEPOWER-i cant wait for the netflix shows, especially DD and Iron Fist next year
Mego - 5/8/2014, 8:00 PM
@BatmanRobinNightwing I was right there with you hating this show not long ago. But they got it together in a big way. So many great dynamics going on. I love the show now!

AOS is the best comic book TV series right now.
