ABC joined CBS in making this the week to announce midseason place-holding plans, as the network set premiere dates for “Marvel's Agent Carter” and for the musical-comedy-thing “Galavant.”
As was previously announced, “Agent Carter” will serve as the bridge between halves of the “Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” season, focusing on the character played by Hayley Atwell in both “Captain America” movies and in this year's “S.H.I.E.L.D.” premiere.
“Marvel's Agent Carter” will premiere on Tuesday, January 6 and will run until “Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” returns on March 3.
In addition to Atwell, “Agent Carter” features James D'Arcy, Chad Michael Murray, Enver Gjokaj and Sean Whigham.
“Galavant,” which comes from “The Neighbors” creator Dan Fogelman and features songs from Alan Menken and Glenn Slater, will premiere on Sunday, January 4. The difficult-to-describe fairy tale series is only a half-hour, but ABC will air two episodes per week from January 4 until “Once Upon a Time” returns on Sunday, March 1.
Oh and do you wanna know when “Grey's Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How To Get Away With Murder” are returning? That'd be Thursday, January 29.
