Another blow to fans of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this morning.
During a conference calls with the press yesterday ABC chief Channing Dungey confirmed the series won’t return until Summer 2019. No further information was given on when the show might return to screens. Summer would suggest we won’t see the 13 episode sixth season until after the 2018/19 broadcast season wraps up.
On a brighter note Dungey told the press that the network currently has ‘no plans’ to end the series at six seasons:
“I think the last season we just had, Season 5, was their creatively strongest yet,” she explained. “So I don’t, at the moment, have any plans to think of Season 6 as the last season.”
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs at 8 pm ET on ABC. Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Henry Simmons, Ian De Caestecker, Natalia Cordova-Buckley, Elizabeth Henstridge, Nick Blood, Jeff Ward, Eve Harlow, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Coy Stewart star.
