We're just under three weeks away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe's small-screen debut in ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," a fact that MTV Geek is celebrating in it's Fall Preview coverage. "S.H.I.E.L.D." is one of their 10 most anticipated TV shows—and deservedly so! This series marks Marvel Studios' first foray into television as well as Agent Coulson's return to life. That latter mystery, one that's been on fans' minds since his return was announced last October, will be integral to the new series, reveals executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen in an exclusive interview with MTV Geek.

"The heart of the show is how he's still alive," said Tancharoen, remaining understandably vague about the details regarding his return. You can check out the rest of the interview over at MTV Geek, where fellow producers and showrunners Jeph Loeb, Jed Whedon, and Jeffrey Bell join Tancharoen to discuss the show's theme, whether or not it will include previously unseen Marvel heroes, and whether or not any movie stars are lined up to appear.
