The highly publicized project comes from Joss Whedon, his brother Jed Whedon and Jed’s wife, Maurissa Tancharoen. The series is set in the Marvel movie universe and will focus on the top-secret agency seen in all of the Phase One Marvel films.
ABC announced that the series will air Sundays at 8 p.m. EST.
ER’s Ming-Na stars as Agent Melinda May, The Avengers’ Clark Gregg reprises his role as Agent Phil Coulson, Killing Lincoln’s Brett Dalton is set as gruff rising star Agent Grant Ward, Elizabeth Henstridge as science whiz Agent Gemma Simmons and Iain DeCaestecker as tech guru Agent Leo Fitz, with Nashville’s Chloe Bennet set as Skye, a superhero-obsessed woman.
ABC is wasting little time in promoting the series. A first-look at the series will air Sunday after the Once Upon a Time season finale.
