Marvel and ABC are teaming up once again, with a third series in the works at the network, according to Entertainment Weekly. While there are no details about the potential spinoff's plot or even a timeline for its premiere, the project is being developed by S.H.I.E.L.D.'s executive producer Jeffrey Bell and writer Paul Zbyszewski. Plus, there won't be a backdoor pilot this season (a la Criminal Minds' recent Beyond Borders trial), some of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s upcoming storylines could possibly bleed into the new series.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is currently averaging 7.4 million viewers, has yet to be renewed for a third season by ABC, but the network almost always waits until May to announce all of their renewals, with How to Get Away With Murder's recent second season pick-up being the rare exception.
