It is a very good day to be a comic book adaptation fan. With Fox, The CW and NBC staking claim on their own adaptations (Gotham, Flash, iZombie and Constantine), now ABC has joined in the fun with a second season renewal for Agents of SHIELD and a series pickup for Agent Carter announced.
This really isn’t a surprise and has been rumored for a while, but now it’s official, Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the SHIELD gang (or whatever they are now that Hydra has destroyed all that) will return for another season. Hopefully word about the much improved second half of the first season can bring back some people who tuned out after a slow start.
Meanwhile, Hayley Atwell will be back to reprise Peggy Carter, who stole plenty of hearts in Captain America: The First Avenger. I didn’t love her returning as an old woman in Winter Soldier and am really looking forward to seeing more of Peggy as she should be, in the field kicking ass in the 1940s.
