“Agents of SHIELD” season 2 is on its way and Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson) has revealed new information about the season.
“It’s going to be lo-fi. You’re going back to basics,” he said.
“You’ve got to rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D. from the ground up in a much more dangerous world where your group is outlawed. So it feels like the early, Sean Connery James Bond with the brass knuckles and not afraid to knock somebody off,” he told Collider in a video interview.
Gregg also said that the new season won’t have some of the problems the first season faced, such as the extended hiatus, because of Agent Carter.
“I thought there were so many things stacked against us last year and one of them was where the ABC television schedule would put us on for three episodes and then take us down for four weeks. Nobody could get a momentum going and when the show started to be on consistently and having story that carried over in an episodic way, that’s when things started to click,” he said.
“So the great thing about the announcement was, we’re moving to nine, where it can be a little darker, like I think Marvel needs to be.”
Gregg previously said that he believes that season 2 will consist of 22 episodes. The first 10 will air consecutively, then the show will break for Agent Carter, then the last 12 episodes will air.
Meanwhile, “Community” star Danny Pudi says that he’d like to have a cameo in “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” after his cameo in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
“Anything is possible. I never thought that ‘Captain America’ was possible,” Pudi told TVLine.
“I also never thought that being on ‘Cougar Town’ was possible. So … why not? No one’s contacted me about that. But please tell everyone that I am available and interested.”
As for a release date, it’s been pegged as this fall by Marvel, but a specific date hasn’t been announced. The first season premiered on September 24, making a date likely around then.
