Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. producenten Maurissa Tancharoen en Jed Whedon spraken over de toekomstplannen van de serie, welke nog geen officieel groen licht heeft gekregen voor een tweede seizoen: “We have a board going right now. We just don’t have a season two yet. But we are planning on it and at the end of season one, we are tying a lot of things up as well as teeing things up for a possible season two.”
Whedon vervolgde: “No, you’d be so desperate to see another season, and you’d be sad. It’ll definitely be a satisfying season finale, but we definitely are teeing up stuff to come.”
Over de communicatie met Marvel en ABC zei Tancharoen: “They’re aware of every step; they’re an integral part of our process. They see every script, they see every cut, they give notes, and we’re very aware of everything they’re doing. We read all of the film scripts before they’re even finished.”
Whedon: “The idea with every Marvel property is for them to exist on their own and then interweave. No one backswipes; Thor didn’t show up in Iron Man 3. It’s not that these things are dependent on one another. They had the opportunity to interact, and they exist in the same universe, and we are in the same universe; and when we establish something in our universe, in our show, it becomes a rule in the universe, so we have to make sure we’re respectful of what they’re planning to do, and that we’re all on the same page.”
Ondanks de dalende kijkcijfers zijn de producenten positief over een tweede seizoen. De serie lijkt steeds beter zijn draai te vinden.
