Agents of SHIELD fans were thrilled when it was announced the ABC drama would be introducing the Secret Warriors this season. Unfortunately, the budding team of superpowered agents wasn't exactly given the spotlight in the first half of SHIELD's third season. But that will all be changing once the series returns Tuesday.

"We were starting to find the Secret Warriors and bring together a team of Secret Warriors to deal with this outbreak of enhanced people, and that had to almost go on the backburner," Clark Gregg tells TVGuide.com.

"There is some exciting stuff coming with Secret Warriors," Gregg promises. "Hopefully it will be exciting enough that we'll have a fighting chance against what's coming to find us."

Agents of SHIELD airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on ABC.
