The forthcoming show is created by Joss Whedon and based on the Marvel Comics organisation SHIELD (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division).
The series will premiere on Channel 4 in the autumn, soon after its launch on the ABC network in the US.
"Like the Super Hero universe from which it has come, Marvel's Agents of SHIELD is big, bold and absolutely exhilarating," said Channel 4's chief creative officer Jay Hunt.
"Featuring the production values you'd expect from Marvel and ABC Studios, this is family entertainment at its most exciting."
Avengers cast members Cobie Smulders and Clark Gregg will reprise their roles for the new series, while Samuel L Jackson has also expressed an interest in appearing on the small screen.
British star Ian Hart recently joined the cast of Agents of SHIELD.
Loki actor Tom Hiddleston has also said that he would be open to the possibility of featuring in the show.
Agents of SHIELD premieres on ABC in the US on Tuesday, September 24 at 8/7c.
