NEW YORK (AP) — ABC says it is adding 14 new shows to its lineup next season, including a spinoff of its fairytale drama, "Once Upon a Time," and an action-adventure series drawn from the Marvel Comics world.
The network also said it's going to combine the two nights of "Dancing With the Stars" into one next season, airing a two-hour episode on Monday nights.
ABC joined other broadcast networks in presenting their 2013-2014 schedules to advertisers in New York.
"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," from hit-maker Joss Whedon, features Clark Gregg reprinting his role as Agent Coulson from Marvel's feature films.
Other new shows the network is adding to its schedule next season include "Super Fun Night," written by and starring "Bridesmaids" actress Rebel Wilson, and a Texas Rangers drama called "Killer Women."
