Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to Channel 4 in the UK on Friday the 14th of March at 8pm...

The long wait for its post-Christmas return is nearly over for UK Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. viewers, as Channel 4 confirms it will return on Friday the 14th of March at 8pm. That's the same day and time slot as the series occupied before the hiatus.

Channel 4 held off bringing the show back at the beginning of the year to avoid any further breaks in broadcasting caused by gaps in the US scheduling (US viewers, for instance, haven't had an episode since the 4th of February and will only catch up with episode fourteen on the 4th of March).

The first instalment back on Channel 4 will be number eleven in the twenty-two episode first season, The Magical Place. From that point onwards by our calculations, UK viewers will remain four episodes behind US transmission until the end of the run.

They took their time, and lost me to other viewing methods. It's a shame, because this show really picked up after The Magical Place - well worth tuning in for if you gave up early on.

I'm kind of glad to know that we're not as far behind as I thought we'd be thanks to the gap in the USA. I'm hoping when the Netflix shows and Agent Carter finally air that we're not beset by delays there either!

I waited and am looking forward to its return, but I will watch it on RTE2 because in Ireland my channel 4 channels don't work.

Woo hoo, I can't wait! Oh no wait, yes I can.

Well, good that it finally continues, but this might give the completist MCU watchers a problem. As I understand the oncoming episodes may be tied close to the events of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' somehow. This might mean that UK viewers are not up to speed in some way with CA:TWS. It's a bit like watching SHIELD episode 'The Well' before watching 'Thor: The Dark World'.

Why do the US have so many big breaks?

If there is you can always use Hola Better Internet. Netflix don't mind you using it and you can access American stuff.
