Unfortunately for ABC, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD has never lived up to ratings expectations and become a hit for the network. It did okay in the first season and then viewership dropped more than 30% in season two. Will the ratings continue to fall? Could it be cancelled or is it almost guaranteed to be renewed for a fourth season to have enough episodes for syndication? Stay tuned.
On Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Agent Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) lead their team as they search the world for more powered people. They soon discover that they’re not the only ones looking for new inhumans. The rest of the cast includes Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Nick Brood, Adrianne Palicki, Henry Simmons, and Luke Mitchell.
