In our various articles about Marvel's upcoming TV spin-off series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we've been constantly stating that we expect it to release 'sometime in fall'. Well now we know explicitly when that sometime will be. Get your calenders out and put a big, fat mark on Tuesday September 24th, 2013.

ABC recently announced the news, adding the episodes will run from 8pm to 9pm, confirming they will be hour (well, let's say 45 minutes with commercials) long episodes.

Have you been living under a rock? Still not sure what it's all about? Check out the lengthy synopsis below:

Agent Phil Coulson () returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz () and Agent Jemma Simmons (). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye ().

Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual – of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.

What do you think? Is September 24th soon enough? Or does it still feel like an age away? Let me know how excited you are below.
