Marvel's Agents of SHIELD returns for season six

MARVEL'S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.-

After several days of hanging in limbo, ABC renewed the Marvel series for a 13-episode 6th season yesterday. Wherever they put it, the show's ardent fans will find it, and midseason will likely be a bit less competitive than the stacked fall slate.

S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted in 2013 as the brainchild of Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, and Joss Whedon, who helped created the series in the wake of the success of The Avengers and directed the pilot. And just as the film marks the end of Phase Three in the MCU, opening the door for a new narrative to begin, we wouldn't be surprised if season six is where Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. bows out too.

There's no word yet if this will be Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. final season but all signs point towards this being the swan song for the Marvel series. "S.H.I.E.L.D." has been perpetually low-rated in recent years, though Deadline reports that it performs very well on DVR viewings, and is also quite popular overseas.

The show is the only Marvel property to survive more than two seasons on basic cable.

Kim summit poses logistical challenges for North Korea
KELEMEN: And Kang also says that North Korea shouldn't expect any sanctions relief until it takes visible steps to denuclearize. At the time this news broke, Pompeo was holding a joint news conference with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha.

Instead, the shortened season will serve as a follow up to Avengers 4, positioning the show to bring to live the street-level aftermath of those surely-collosal events.

Season 5 is to wrap Friday. Regardless, fans can breathe a sigh of relief that the series will indeed return, if in a more abbreviated form.

That's not necessarily a bad thing, and again I'm curious to see if Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will address Infinity War directly, or if the show will continue on forging its own path.
