Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. came to ABC in 2013 and has been going strong ever since. It is so strong, in fact, that ABC has already ordered a seventh season. With so many of the Netflix series coming to an unexpected end, there were fans that suspected Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would be next. It looks like that is not to be the case. Season six does not air until July 2019, but that doesn’t seem to be stopping ABC. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D has been known to tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the movies are released. It is possible they are using this time to avoid any repercussions from Avengers: Infinity War. By waiting, they have eliminated the need to work within the confines of Avengers: Infinity War and the sequel due out in early 2019.
Some of the characters were left in a sort of limbo at the end of season five, so it will be interesting to see how the story progresses in the coming seasons. They have also been known to bring in guest stars from the movies. Perhaps we will be seeing some familiar faces in the coming seasons? Rumors of Chloe Bennet (Daisy “Skye” Johnson) in her new outfit as Quake have started to circulate in recent days. Also returning to the show for season six (and seven?) are Ming-Na Wen, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley, and Jeff Ward. With so many of our favorite characters returning, it is bound to continue to be an adventure.
