Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to Channel 4 in March
UK fans of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. will have to wait until March for the rest of season one's episodes...
The short lag-time between the US and UK airings of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., which began within days of one another last September, was an initial boon to UK viewers. No, it wasn't quite as timely as Netflix releasing new Breaking Bad episodes over here mere hours after they'd aired in the states, but it was fun to be able to stay legally up to date at the beginning.
The problems of course, kicked in when trying to mesh a US TV schedule, with its mid-season finales and hiatus periods, with one in the UK. S.H.I.E.L.D. returned to ABC in the US this week, but there was no sign of it on Channel 4's January schedules.
We asked Channel 4 when UK viewers could expect to see the next episode of S.H.I.E.L.D. (which received a full 22-episode season order back in October), and here's their reply:
"SHIELD will be returning to Channel 4 most likely in March (exact date tbc). This is so that we can air the remainder of the series at one episode a week with no more breaks in between episodes."
We'll bring you an exact date as soon as one is confirmed.
