Is Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD coming to an end? Recently, co-showrunners Maurisa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon spoke with TVLine about the future of the ABC TV show.
Part of the Marvel Comics universe, the drama centers on Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team as they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. The cast also includes Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, and Elizabeth Henstridge.
At a recent celebration for Agents of SHIELD‘s 100th episode, co-showrunner Jed Whedon told TVLine they are writing the season five finale as a series finale just in case ABC does not renew the show:
Yeah, we’re ready for if this is the end. We’re definitely going to make it rewarding either way.”
We can certainly pivot and there are certain things that we’re putting in that at the last minute could be adjusted. But we know at the end we’re not moving off that mark. We’re going to do what we were planning to do, and I think that it’ll be thrilling either way.”
Season five of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD returns this Friday, March 2nd, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
