Mixed news from ABC today, as they’ve announced the premiere dates for Marvel’s Agent Carter (I’m certain they were waiting until after I posted my article about the show, just to mess with me) and the limited series fairy tale musical Galavant, and the return dates for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Once Upon a Time.
Mixed, because yay! Early January premiere dates for Marvel’s Agent Carter and Galavant, and boo! No Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or Once Upon a Time until March. Ready?
Galavant will premiere on SUNDAY, JANUARY 4 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) and will run two episodes in the one-hour block each week, and Marvel’s Agent Carter premieres on TUESDAY, JANUARY 6 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET).
Once Upon a Time will return on Sunday, March 1 and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return on Tuesday, March 3 in their regular time periods with all-new episodes.
Here’s a quick reminder about Galavant; for your quick reminder on Marvel’s Agent Carter, see my story from earlier today here.
Galavant – Screenwriter/executive producer Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love, Tangled, Cars) unites with Broadway and Hollywood award-winning musical team—composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast) and lyricist Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid, Tangled). Once upon a time, the dashing hero, Galavant (Joshua Sasse), lost the love of his life, Madalena (Mallory Jansen), to the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson). Now, our fallen hero is ready to take revenge and restore his “happily ever after.” But it won’t be without a few twists and turns along the way.
Galavant stars Joshua Sasse as Galavant, Timothy Omundson as King Richard, Vinnie Jones as Gareth, Mallory Jansen as Madalena, Karen David as Isabella and Luke Youngblood as Sid.
Galavant was written by Dan Fogelman, who also serves as executive producer. Executive producers are Alan Menken, Glenn Slater and Chris Koch. The pilot of Galavant was directed by Chris Koch. Abbey C Studios Ltd. produces Galavant for ABC Studios.
