ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey Discusses Future Of Marvel TV On ABC and Explains Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Season 6 Move To Summer 2019 Instead Of Fall / Winter Line-Up Like Previous Seasons. Is It Avengers Infinity War I & II Film Related?
When I spoke with Netflix head of originals Cindy Holland, she said the Marvel Netflix dramas would continue to remain on that platform until the shows come to their rightful conclusions. What is the future of Marvel on ABC — especially given the DTC?
We’re cooking up a couple things for broadcast. There’s one that I want to talk about and [Marvel TV head] Jeph Loeb won’t let me.
What’s the future of Agents of SHIELD? Is the shortened 13-episode run a final season?
We’ll see. I feel like last season was our strongest creative season ever and the fan base remains very loyal — and we do very well in delayed viewing. It’s my hope that by moving it to summer, where our live-same-day ratings are less important and it might be able to continue for longer.
So, not related to the Avengers Infinity Wars films.
