ABC Renews AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. And AGENT CARTER; Spinoff No Longer Moving Ahead

Marvel isn't going anywhere on ABC, as they have announced that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return for a third season, and Agent Carter is indeed coming back for a second. The former has average a 1.5 rating among adults, but it's a steady performer for the network and does good numbers with DVR showings. Agent Carter meanwhile also did respectable (if not amazing) numbers earlier this year, but the eight part series gained a loyal fan following, so this surprise renewal should come as welcome news. How the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron and plans for Captain America: Civil War will change Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s third season remains to be seen.

The news that ABC were plotting an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff focusing on Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) was met with a mixed response from fans, especially as many fans were worried that it would mean both characters leaving that series.

Well, that's no longer an issue as Deadline reports that ABC and Marvel have decided to put the brakes on their plans for the sow which was being developed by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeffrey Bell and co-executive producer Paul Zbyszewski. Details were scarce, but we did know that it would focus on the two characters mentioned above. Chances are it's been scrapped.

The site also mentions that the network are still working on a possible series with John Ridley, but he may be too busy with a second season of American Crime to prioritise that.
