When ABC renewed Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD TV show for a sixth season, it was for a reduced order of 13 episodes. Now, we have a little bit more bad news — not cancellation bad, just not great from the fans’ perspective. We will have to wait until the summer of 2019 for the Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD season six to premiere.
An ABC sci-fi action adventure drama, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Henry Simmons, and Natalia Cordova-Buckley. From Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen, the series is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“SHIELD” is now a summer show. Or at least, it will be in 2019 when it returns during our warmest months.“By putting it in the summer, we feel like we’re going to be able to super-serve the fanbase that loves that show, and hopefully give it an opportunity to continue on longer than it would if it lived in season,” ABC Entertainment chief Channing Dungey said Tuesday on a call with press.[…]“I actually personally felt this season that we just had, Season 5, was their creatively strongest yet,” Dungey told reporters. “So I don’t at any moment have any plans to think of Season 6 as the last season.”
