Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is an American television series of the superhero fantasy and super-spy genres. It is based on the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization featured in various comic book titles published by Marvel Comics. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a spin-off of the 2012 feature film The Avengers and is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The series was produced by Mutant Enemy Productions, the newly formed Marvel Television and ABC Studios and began airing on ABC on Tuesday, September 24th, 2013. The series was created by Avengers director Joss Whedon and spear-headed by producers Jeph Loeb, Maurissa Tancharoen and Joss' brother Jed Whedon.
The show follows the adventures of S.H.I.E.L.D. - America's top super-spy agency and the country's first and last (non-super powered) line of defense against threats of a global nature. The series follows story concepts introduced in The Avengers such as alien technology left behind by the Chitauri. It also addresses consequences of other elements of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, such as the Super-Soldier Serum that turned scrawny Steve Rogers into the patriotic Captain America back in the 1940s and Gamma radiation, which was responsible for transforming scientist Bruce Banner into a rampaging Hulk.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stars Clark Gregg reprising the role of Agent Phil Coulson, who appeared in four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films as well as the Marvel One-Shot shorts. Although his character was seemingly killed off in The Avengers by Loki, Agent Coulson appears to be back in action. The rest of the cast are brand new characters unique not only to the Marvel Movieverse, but also from the comics themselves. Creator Joss Whedon sought to create an original ensemble of character, but place them in a world with a familiar setting. The S.H.I.E.L.D. lineup includes Brett Dalton as neophyte ass-kicker Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as the rogue computer hacker Skye, Ming-Na Wen as seasoned veteran Melinda May, Iain De Caestecker as computer nerd Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Leo's partner, Jemma Simmons (they are both collectively referred to as Fitzsimmons).
