Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres tonight: Tuesday, September 24, at 8 p.m. on ABC. The show has been cloaked in mystery, which made us all the more excited to see these new sneak peeks of the show. The new series is about to kick off, and these five spoiler clips definitely make us more excited to get to know the characters on the show.

In the clips, We are introduced to the formation of the group that will become S.H.I.E.L.D.: Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. The team is comprised of ER's Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Nashville's Chloe Bennett as civilian recruit/computer hacker Skye, Cobie Smulders, who reprises her role from The Avengers as Maria Hill, Iron Man’s Clark Gregg reprising his role as recruiter Agent Phil Coulson, relative newcomer Brett Dalton as combat expert Grant Ward, Coronation Street’s Iain De Caestecker as engineer Leo Fitz, and Elizabeth Henstridge as biochemist Jemma Simmons.

And while the show comes from Marvel, none of them are superheroes — they just work like them and with them. Sound like a lot to take in? You’ll barely remember a day when you didn’t love these guys, as soon as you watch them in action. With Skye’s mouthy nerdiness, the amazing Fitz/Simmons chemistry, and Coulson’s rye wit, they quickly come to feel like old friends you’re excited to know again. Plus, the Marvel tie-in means that superhero lovers will always be able to cast the plot within their lexicon and give each episode more meaning.

Here are a few clips to get you excited for the premiere:
