The “back-nine” either refers to the second half in a round of golf, or the nine additional episodes a network TV show gets once it shows staying power. And since this isn’t a golf website, it must mean Marvel Studio’s first TV show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., just got a full season pickup for nine more episodes. The back-nine, as it were.
After debuting to stellar numbers, the show has dipped in subsequent weeks, but with competition from two of TV’s most popular shows – NCIS and The Voice - ABC felt confident enough to renew the show for a full season. We’ll be seeing a lot more of Agent Coulson and the gang. This year at least.
Great news. Three episodes in and I’m loving it a lot. The irritating thing is I’ve been seeing a lot of negative things about the show. I’m writing an article right now that I’ll be posting next that deals with this. Stay tuned.
