In case you’ve been living under a rock this summer, this is a friendly reminder that Joss Whedon’s Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD will hit our TV screens this Fall from Tuesday September 24th.

This latest teaser trailer is so reminiscent of Firefly that we had to force ourselves to stop looking for Nathan Fillion among the slo-mo action sequences set to forlorn country music.

Check it out below, and catch SHIELD’s premiere episode Tuesday September 24th at 8/7c on ABC.

And just in case you need any last reminders, you can check out ABC’s official log lines for the show below.

The series begins where the “Marvel’s The Avengers” left off. It’s just after the battle of New York, and now that the existence of super heroes and aliens has become public knowledge, the world is trying to come to grips with this new reality. Agent Phil Coulson is back in action and now has his eye on a mysterious group called The Rising Tide. In order to track this unseen, unknown enemy, he has assembled a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division).

The S.H.I.E.L.D. team has a mission: To investigate the new, the strange and the unknown around the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary.

    Love the promo, but wow. Stevie Nicks is considered *country* now?

    I’m very familiar with Stevie’s work – along with Lindsey Buckingham (on guitar in this song) and Fleetwood Mac. While I wouldn’t classify Nicks as a country singer, this song, inspired by her visit to the Walter Reed Army Center, resonates with strong modern country overtones. To label it classic rock would be a bit of a knee-jerk reaction. It’s country.
