ABC Renews Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD For Season 6 With A Catch.
TV Line reports:
The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have (some) more missions ahead of them.
ABC announced on Monday that the Marvel series has been renewed for Season 6, to air during the 2018-19 TV season. Sources say the new season will consist of just 13 episodes, though it has not yet been determined if it will be a farewell run.
The renewal news comes just as the TV series is lightly dovetailing with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, by alluding to the alien supervillain Thanos’ invasion of Earth. What remains to be seen, though, is if and how S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s Season 5 finale, airing this Friday at 9/8c, will incorporate the very final twist of Infinity War.
Swan song or not for franchise with shortened upcoming season?
