One of pilot season’s easiest calls is now official: ABC has picked up Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., geek god Joss Whedon‘s TV offshoot of the Avengers feature films.

What’s more, the first promo for the brand-new series is set to air this Sunday during the Once Upon a Time season finale.


The cast for S.H.I.E.L.D. — which follows a worldwide law enforcement organization that polices the new, the strange and the unknown — includes ER alum Ming-Na (as former soldier Melinda May), Clark Gregg (reprising his big-screen Avengers role as Agent Phil Coulson), Nashville’s Chloe Bennet (as superhero culture-obsessed Skye), British beauty Elizabeth Henstridge (science expert Gemma Simmons), Scotsman Iain De Caestecker (tech whiz Leo Fitz) and Brett Dalton (rising star Agent Grant).
