Following its premiere as the season’s biggest new drama, ABC is set to rebroadcast the pilot episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. tonight, September 26th, at 8pm EST.

On the heels of its debut as the season’s biggest new drama, ABC is set to rebroadcast the Pilot episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET). The show premiered as TV’s highest rated new drama in nearly four years. In addition, it received an unprecedented one million Facebook fans before its television debut, and those numbers are still climbing.

In the premiere episode, “Pilot,” it’s just after the battle of New York, and now that the existence of super heroes and aliens has become public knowledge, the world is trying to come to grips with this new reality. Agent Phil Coulson is back in action and has his eye on a mysterious group called The Rising Tide. In order to track this unseen, unknown enemy, he has assembled a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division). The group’s first assignment together as a team finds them trying to track down an ordinary man who has gained extraordinary powers, powers that could have devastating consequences.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel’s first television series, was co-created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen-Whedon (Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog), who also serve as executive producers along with Jeph Loeb (Smallville, Lost, Heroes) and Jeffrey Bell (Angel, Alias). Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.

Assignment Editor, East Coast. I don't binge-watch, I power-watch. I'm a major television junkie, but I love movies, too. I embraced my geek style in the new millennium and have run with it ever since. I have been working in the entertainment industry since forever, but it hasn't dulled my sense of wonder whenever I watch a great movie or an absorbing television show. I love genre -- in particular, I love vampires, the supernatural, and some slasher pics. I also love comedies -- they make life easier. I've been traveling with Whedonopolis since 2007 and writing for the site since 2008. The views expressed on these web sites are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of any of my employers, past or present (or future).
