"Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" found its footing in its Season 1 finale, largely thanks to its connection to the Marvel movie "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." That great symbiotic relationship between the Marvel films and their small screen counterpart will continue in Season 2, says ABC President Paul Lee.

"I can't be specific about it, but what I can say is we had such a strong set of stories through that huge finale at the end," he tells reporters at 2014 summer TV press tour. "That triggered up a whole load of story lines we're reading at the moment, and I have to say I'm loving those scripts."

ABC announced that "Agents of SHIELD" will return on Sept. 23 at 9 p.m., and "Agent Carter" will cover its midseason break. When Zap2it spoke with showrunners Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon after the Season 1 finale, they teased a lot of the big questions left resolved at the end of the show's freshman season.

Of Coulson's mysterious new interest in seemingly alien writing, Whedon says with a laugh, "That's a big question." Tancharoen adds, "I guess we can say that's something we'll explore in Season 2."

As for Patton Oswalt playing both Billy and Eric Koenig, Whedon says, "We don't yet know. They're identical." "They look a lot alike and they maybe say similar things, but that does not completely mean what you're thinking," Tancharoen adds.
