bill-swift - October 16, 2013

With Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. riding high and talk of an Agent Carter spin off making the rounds, Deadline is now reporting that Marvel has four new shows and a miniseries in the works. The studio is interested in offering the 60-episode package to video-on-demand providers such as Netflix and Amazon, as well as cable networks.

Even the highly anticipated Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was only slated for a nine-episode commitment before ABC expanded to a full 22, which goes to show that a 60-episode commitment would be tough for many companies to swallow despite Marvel's proven track record and well-known characters. But as Coming Soon points out, the fact that all four shows and the miniseries are being planned from the start would seem to indicate that we might be looking at different chapters of a larger story rather than a bunch of independent shows.

Coming from the studio that brought together the ensemble film The Avengers, such an approach wouldn't be that surprising.
