Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’ Spinoff Not Dead at ABC

There’s still hope for ABC’s next spinoff of “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.”

Despite recent reports that the spinoff series (which was confirmed to be in early development this April) is dead, ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee says there is still a possibility for the project.

On Tuesday’s conference call ahead of the network’s Upfront presentation in New York, Lee raved about “SHIELD” and “Agent Carter,” which returns midseason with Season 2, revealing, “it certainly is a possibility of spinning them off.”

The spinoff was rumored to focus on Adrianne Palicki’s Bobbi Morse and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter, and Lee admitted, “We absolutely love those characters on ‘SHIELD,'” so much so that they didn’t want to mess with success by attempting a spinoff at this point.

“SHIELD” has been a solid performer for ABC in ratings, and the eight episodes of “Agent Carter” maintained the show’s momentum during its winter break.

Lee also gave vague details about “American Crime” creator John Ridley’s highly classified Marvel project, saying “I can’t talk about the John Ridley one, other than to say that he’s working on it.”
