Despite the spectacular outcome of this season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and the incredible response from pretty much the entirety of its fanbase, the prospect of the show being renewed has been in limbo for some time. But it seems that’s about to change because according to Deadline reporter Nellie Andreeva, the show is apparently on its way to getting renewed. Here’s what she had to say:
Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., which serves as a solid marketing platform for the Disney-owned Marvel, also is getting renewed I hear.
PRAISE AIDA. While nothing has been confirmed officially, Andreeva and Deadline are two of the more reliable insiders and outlets out there so I’m banking on this being true. There’s also something to be said about the show having the best reception its had in a long time. Personally speaking, I’d much well-planned send-off as opposed to playing it out for several more seasons, so the contradicting optimist in me believes that this renewal should also be its last. Regardless, it’s so exciting to see the show find its stride and place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I can’t wait to see what they have planned for the 5th season.
As for the actual confirmation of the renewal, it’s worth noting that the ABC Upfronts (their slate announcement) are happening in this month so it isn’t crazy to expect the announcement there. Stay tuned here for more updates!
