You’ll be seeing A LOT of TV announcements this week.  That’s because it’s Upfronts, meaning the fall lineups are being announced.  Three we think you’ll find interesting:


Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. got picked up for a second full season from Disney-owned ABC.  This is pretty awesome, especially since the show continues to pick up steam, characters, and plot lines.

Marvel One-Shot wonder Agent Peggy Carter is ALSO getting her own tv series on ABC!  It’ll be officially called Marvel’s Agent Carter, and the press release said:  “Marvel’s Agent Carter starring Captain America’s Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve),  Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier along with the short Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.


NBC has officially ordered the David S. Goyer series Constantine, which is probably the new show I’m most looking forward to.  (Not so fast, SyFy with your knock off Dominion)  Based on DC Comics’ Hellblazer graphic novels, the drama centers on master of the occult John Constantine (played by Matt Ryan). The drama centers on Constantine as he struggles with his faith while haunted by the sins of his past but is suddenly thrust into the role of defending humanity from the gathering forces of darkness. Dexter‘s Daniel Cerone penned the script and will exec produce the Warner Bros. Television drama alongside Goyer.
