Marvel Agents of SHIELD Changes Needed Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 Premieres on Sept. 23rd

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was Marvel’s next-step move to extend their cinematic universe to television – and to say that the ride through season 1 was volatile would be an understatement. For the first half of the season, it was not looking good; the general consensus was that the show was not on part with the Marvel cinematic brand. However, after the game-changing events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the show found a foothold and managed to regain some fan confidence on its way to the season 1 finale.

Of course, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2 has some lingering mysteries to confront – including the origins of serum GH325 and the blue man, what the serum means for Coulson and Skye, and what S.H.I.E.L.D. actually is now that the organization has come apart at the seams.

Thanks to the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Facebook page, we now know that season 2 will premiere on Wednesday, September 23rd, having shifted from the Tuesday night slot occupied by season 1 to make room for new superhero TV shows like The Flash. Indeed, fanboys and fangirls are going to be quite busy in this new TV season, with ArrowConstantineGotham and the Agent Carter spinoff series all airing (to name a few).

For Marvel fans, it’s going to be interesting to see how the cosmic-set Guardians of the Galaxy affects the show (those extraterrestrial connections are more and more apparent), as well as how AoS season 2 sets up premises for films like Captain America 3 and/or The Avengers: Age of Ultron (which could feature Coulson’s S.H.I.E.L.D. team). Beyond that, it’s not a stretch to say that most fans are probably just hoping for a better, smoother experience than they got from the early half of season 1.

As stated, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2 will premiere on Wednesday, September 23rd.

  1. Agents of Shield
    Arrow Season 3
    Gotham?(still unsure)
    =my life this fall hahha

    • Mine’s the same, just switch out AOS for Constantine and remove the unsure feeling about Gotham.

  2. According to the press release and link on the official Facebook page it is still on Tuesdays not Wednesdays. I think you mean to say that the shift is to the 9 o’clock slot.

    • I agree with homodrome. Also, September 23, 2014 is a Tuesday, not a Wednesday.

  3. It may have had a few flaws, but on a second viewing of the season in its entirety with a friend recently, I’ve enjoyed it more than the first… significantly.

    There’s so many hints and things in the writing about Hydra early on in the season that I had never noticed. I was pretty surprised. It was also a great ride seeing the characters start so stiff and reserved with one another, and how their characters grew together over the course of the 22 episodes.

    I think this season was much better than I initially thought it was.

    Just my opinion

    • I think the scheduling hurt it a lot in this regard. There were so many hints and so much fore shadowing that you forgot during the extended and multiple breaks.

  4. The show no doubt got better the latter half of it’s season 1. It could still be better though. No were near Arrow. I cant wait for the 1st season of Flash. That is one I’m actually really excited for. Gotham looks like it might be good to. Agent Carter has potential as well.

  5. September 23rd is a Tuesday…
    If its Wednesdays starting the 24th it better be at 9 so it’s not the same time as Arrow
    Cuz Tuesdays at 9 was perfect right after Flash

    • It’s on Tuesdays at 9. Kofi just got things confused a bit.(it moved to 9 from 8, but stayed on the same date).

  6. “the general consensus was that the show was not on part with the Marvel cinematic brand.”

    You mean on PAR, right? Agreed :)

  7. sure the blue dude COULD be an alien, however I say don’t make that assumption with zero information – it is NOT the only option try to think outside the box – and also think of characters, stories and locations they could explore on a TV budget

    One option (and may be I’m wrong) — it will lead to … The High Evolutionary –

    who has monsters and a history that is tied to the orginis of Scarlett Witch, Quicksilver & … Jessica Drew

    and the blue man … one of the New Men aka Knights of Wundagore – specifically Snakar – a blue humanoid —

    introducing the High Evolutionary – a character doable on a TV budget fits with everything
    Raina is interested (obsessed?) with “human evolution” … and Sky’s parents being “monsters” …. That is straight up a description of the New Men – humanoid animals.

    re: Erik Koenig – Patton Oswalt – http://marvel.wikia.com/Eric_Koenig_(Earth-616)

    his IDENTICAL dialogue to Billy is very odd and a good sign he’ll turn out to be an LMD
    and potentially lead story wise to the creation of Vision (in some way) or least provide a intro to robotic human synthizoids

    the comic book version is a WWII era character originally – try this on for size …. he’ll be a recurring for season 2 – as well may be Patton Oswalt could be a cool tie-in to Agent Carter where he’ll play the original “human” Erik Koenig … in the 1940′s – ie. as one of the founders of Shield may be as Howard Stark’s assistant or something along with Dum Dum Dugan as a founding field agent (Neal McDonough would love to reprise the role) and it makes total sense that an LMD guards the various secret bases is based on a SHIELD founding member.

    look up the links above … connect a few dots … use a little imagination …

    re: Coulson becoming Captain Mar-vel …. not likely.
    Whenever Captain Mar-vel is introduced it will be a major movie and most likely a younger actor – and may be even a guy named … Chris …. may be Chris Pine ?? he could definitely play the part or may be they’ll save Captain Mar-vell for Phase 4 or 5 – but it will most likely be a new character – not Phil Coulson (the guy who’s anchoring a tv show they want to continue for years).

    • lol wtf this is so random.

  8. Lol @Dazz so we’re pretty much the same hahha I want to give Constatine a chance but it feels like only a fan of the comics would understand the show and I’ve never had the chance to read HellBlazer.

  9. “General consensus” my ass. It always got good ratings and most people loved it. The reviews on here were unnecessarilly negative. It was an awesome season.

    • It wasn’t good… I really wanted it to be and I sticked around until the end, but it wasn’t a quality show. I’ll give it another chance with the second season though and I hope it improves.

      In any case I agree that SR was initially very harsh, but they backpedaled a bit later on and moderated the tone, even being enthusiastic about it.

  10. This show had an incredible turnaround mid-season. I went from loathing it to loving it. The way they handled the season 1 finale was brilliant and made all the nay-sayers eat crow as their predictions turned out to be totally wrong. Looking forward to a strong second season!

  11. I have to agree that the many interruptions really hurt. I often thought not to return but with nothing else to watch, I caught every episode (when they finally decided on airing one). I too, wasn’t impressed with the early half, not so much the stories, but the cast. Didn’t like the acting. Hell, I hated FitzSimmons early on. The first episode I didn’t understand a word they said. But as the series went on, the two lost a lot of the sci fi jargon and the heavy accents.

    The second half was a big improvement, but then I am a Bill Paxton fan. I like his movies/appearances. The events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier having such an impact on the show was a big surprise. One had come to expect tiny incursions into the show from the movies a la Thor, Sif, etc. But this was big! Game changing.

    I still hope they they weave in and out of the Marvel Universe a bit more. They need a few foils of their own. No reason some of the Marvel baddies can’t be regular pains in the ass to Shield as well as they are to this hero or that. The many schemes of, say, the Leader, can intersect with Shield just as well as the Hulk’s world.

    Anyway, be happy when it’s back. Summer sucks with no shows to watch.
