AGENTS OF SHIELD Producers and Cast on the Split Season, Complex Ward

September 30, 2014 by  

AGENTS OF SHIELD suffered from inconsistent airing patterns during its first season, but that won’t be an issue in season 2.

“There is, basically, going to be our fall/winter season, and then we’re going to take a break and do a little show called AGENT CARTER…and then we’re going to be back,” AGENTS OF SHIELD/AGENT CARTER executive producer Jeph Loeb told reporters. “And we’ll be back and run [the rest of the season] all the way through. The idea is to give you as much Marvel as we can at 9 PM on Tuesday nights on ABC. If you do the math, there’s 22 SHIELDs, there’s 8 CARTERs, and so that’s 30 hours at that time…I think what you’ll see, is that by the time we get to, let’s call it ‘winter break,’ a lot of the stories we’ve picked up will be resolved in a new, wonderful way. But that doesn’t mean it won’t have new things that are surprising.”

One of the current surprises the SHIELD team is dealing with is their Ward problem: post-his betrayal (and his attempting to kill FitzSimmons), Ward is being detained…but he’ll only speak to (a very, very, very reluctant/angry/hurt) Skye.

“When you have a monster in the basement, generally there’s a problem,” SHIELD producer Jeffrey Bell teased.

For Brett Dalton (Ward), the way he has portrayed the exiled former SHIELD agent hasn’t really shifted.

“[I play him] as truthfully as possible,” Dalton explained. “That’s one of the really wonderful things about this season — there’s so much complexity — all of us have gone through so much.”

But whether anyone will be able to forgive Ward is still TBD…

AGENTS OF SHIELD airs Tuesdays at 9 PM on ABC.
