Does ABC’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Have To Wait For Avengers Sequel Before Airing New Episodes?

While Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. delivered a smashing end to its first season, the truth is that the ABC series was forced to operate under a status quo until the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier where the team was destroyed.

When we last tuned into the S.H.I.E.L.D. season finale, Nick Fury named Phil Coulson the new director of the then-defunct team, but this has led to speculation that the show has to move the storyline forward at an accelerated pace so that it is ready for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron to be released on May 1, 2015.

TVLine caught up with executive producer Jed Wheon, who unsurprisingly said that he couldn’t reveal much about the show’s plans and specifically couldn’t comment on moving S.H.I.E.L.D. from “point B to point C” in its second season.

“Everything is connected, sometimes more so than other times. Obviously Coulson was born out of the films, and we can only hope to have that sort of impact in the other direction,” he said. “Right now,” he added, “we’re just trying to make everybody as cool and interesting as we can.”
