Technically, Joss Whedon‘s S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot hasn’t even been given a series order, let alone set an airdate. But with its can’t-miss premise and intriguing roster of talent, it’s already shaping up to be one of the most exciting premieres 2013-2014 for TV viewers and TV execs alike.

ABC recently revealed some new information about the series on their website for advertisers, including an updated title and an official synopsis. The description doesn’t reveal a whole lot about the plot that we didn’t already know, but it does describe the Agents (played by Clark Gregg, Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, and Chloe Bennet) in slightly more detail. Hit the jump to keep reading.

Joss Whedon‘s habit of calling back former Whedonverse alums is well established.

It’s been some time now since Joss Whedon confirmed that Clark Gregg would be reprising his role as Agent Phil Coulson in ABC’s S.H.I.E.L.D., but the question’s remained: How would he fit in? Coulson’s storyline in The Avengers didn’t set up him up for an obvious return in the TV series, which is set after the events of that film.

Well, Whedon isn’t spilling all the details, but he has since clarified one major piece of information. Coulson really and truly is back on the team in S.H.I.E.L.D., though we don’t know how quite yet. Hit the jump to keep reading.
