Even though "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." hasn't yet been officially renewed for a third season, ABC may be looking to grow its Marvel content even further: a spinoff of the sophomore series is reportedly "quietly" in development, with a chance of debuting as early as this fall. Both ABC and Marvel declined comment on Entertainment Weekly's story.
It's not yet known which characters would feature in the spinoff, or what the concept will be, but "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." executive producer Jeffrey Bell and writer Paul Zbyszewski are named as the creative forces behind it. The show is said to launch following storylines set to be introduced in the latter episodes of the current second season of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
If the spinoff doesn't happen by this fall, it could debut in midseason, the outlet states, or, as is always a possibility, not happen at all. Additionally, EW states that a third season of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is "pretty much guaranteed," and that "Marvel's Agent Carter" has a "roughly 60 percent chance" of returning for a second season.
