When Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered last fall, the drama failed to live up to the hype. This is because even though S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered in September, the series had to wait until Captain America was released in April to reveal HYDRA had infiltrated the organization, completely changing the direction of the show. That means they spent nearly eight months simply biding time! But once S.H.I.E.L.D. was shut down and clean-cut Agent Ward (Brett Dalton) was revealed to be a sleeper HYDRA agent, the tide began to turn in the show's favor. But was it too little too late?
Executive producer Jeff Bell talked to TVGuide.com about the show's negative reception, what's in store for Season 2 and why fans should give it a second chance.
There will be some new faces on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this fall!
With the government coming after S.H.I.E.L.D., Director Coulson (Clark Gregg) will be on the hunt for anyone who can help the team rebuild. Among the newcomers he'll turn to is Lance Hunter (Nick Blood), who in the comics was the director of S.T.R.I.K.E. — and who we first teased in Mega Buzz. "He's not a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, he's a mercenary," executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen announced during the Marvel TV Comic-Con panel on Friday.
