Although it has been one of ABC’s lowest-rated scripted series, you don’t have to wonder whether Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD TV show will be cancelled or renewed for a seventh season. ABC picked up season seven back in November of 2018 — about six months ahead of the season six premiere. Now we’re just left to wonder if that early renewal was also for a final season. To help us figure it out, we’re tracking the ratings for the sixth season, so stay tuned. *Status update below.
An ABC sci-fi action-adventure drama set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley, and Jeff Ward. Last season, the team time-traveled to a dystopian future from which they had to save the world. In the sixth season, they have to come to terms with the fact that while tampering with the laws of time and space and time may have gotten the job done, it couldn’t save everyone they love.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Last year comparison: The fifth season of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD on ABC averaged a 0.53 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.074 million total viewers (live + same day ratings).
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you still like the Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD TV series? Should it be cancelled or renewed past the seventh season on ABC?
