It quickly became one of ABC's hits, so it's not surprising that the network ordered a full season for "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Although the show lost a big chunk of its first episode's audience, the Marvel spinoff (produced by Joss Whedon) continues to do well.

“S.H.I.E.L.D.” premiered September 24 with 12.1 million viewers in same-day viewing, and marked fall's highest-rated debut among young-adult viewers. It has since dropped to 8 million in its third week, but the numbers are promising.

Per the synopsis, "The Avengers" agent Phil Coulson comes back from the dead to put together a small team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to handle strange new cases.

The show's episodes premiere on Tuesdays at 8 pm EST and will continue to stay on the air through May 2014.
