After "The Bridge" episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., ABC offered up a sneak preview of episode 11, which is the Mid-Season Premiere. Tonight's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was the Mid-Season Finale, and the series will not return until Tuesday, January 7, 2014.
In the sneak preview, an announcer says, “This January, you favorite new Fall TV show returns, as danger hits all new heights. A team struggling for unity, and one man’s shocking mystery is finally revealed.” Judging from the preview scenes, it certainly appears that Agent Coulson was really dead for a period of time.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Tuesday nights at 8 PM ET on ABC.
