ABC has officially given a full-season order to its "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." series. ABC has picked up the back-nine episodes to round out a traditional 22-episode season.
While the series opened to huge premiere numbers, it dropped in subsequent outings. Even so, it still retained a healthy 7.9 million viewers and a 2.9 rating for its third episode this week.
This marks the third 'pick up' for the new Fall season following on from a full season order for NBC's "The Blacklist" and a second season renewal for FOX's "Sleepy Hollow"
