ABC's potential spinoff from "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." was there and vanished before anything actually really happened with it.
In early April, the industry trades reported that Jeffrey Bell and Paul Zbyszewski were crafting a hypothetical spinoff based on the events in the "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." finale. In mid-April, it broke that Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood would be the focal points in the spinoff.
And last week, ABC decided it wasn't moving forward with the spinoff, which hadn't shot a pilot and hadn't revealed any characters beyond Palicki's Bobbi "Mockingbird" Morse and Blood's Lance Hunter.
Spinoff, we hardly knew ye.
In a Tuesday (May 12) conference call with reporters, ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee explained in very broad terms why no "S.H.I.E.L.D." spinoff is on ABC's 2015-16 schedule.
