It quickly became one of ABC”s hits, so it”s not surprising that the network ordered a full season for “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Although the show lost a big chunk of its first episode”s audience, the Marvel spinoff (produced by Joss Whedon) continues to do well.
S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered September 24 with 12.1 million viewers in same-day viewing, and marked fall”s highest-rated debut among young-adult viewers. It has since dropped to 8 million in its third week, but the numbers are promising.
Per the synopsis, “The Avengers” agent Phil Coulson comes back from the dead to put together a small team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to handle strange new cases.
The show”s episodes premiere on Tuesdays at 8 pm EST and will continue to stay on the air through May 2014.
