There’s no need to worry that Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD will be cancelled this time around since ABC has already announced that season seven is the end of the road. The show’s ratings have been falling for several years but, could they rebound for this final, farewell year? Could the executives regret not ordering an eighth season? Stay tuned.
A sci-fi action-adventure drama, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley, and Jeff Ward. In the seventh and final season, Coulson and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are thrust backward in time and stranded in 1931 New York City. With the all-new Zephyr set to time-jump at any moment, the team must hurry to find out exactly what happened. If they fail, it would mean disaster for the past, present, and future of the world.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
