And the wait just became longer. Along with the announcement yesterday morning that Inhumans and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. were being scheduled for Fridays, came another revealing that Coulson’s squad of agents wouldn’t appear on TV in its usual Fall-September schedule This caused fans to wonder where exactly in the Marvel TV slate would Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fit in, especially now that there’s a new primetime Inhumans show along it. Well yesterday, Clark Gregg himself took to Reddit to answer some questions by the fans. And what do you know? The very same question was brought up and Clark being the man himself, confirmed it generously:
Yes. Full season after the 8 eps of The Inhumans. Then we do our whole run. Could be cool that way.
22 weeks before this week in May is the week before Christmas. So we likely will either get a pod before Christmas, or they’ll have to double some nights up, or they will have to run past mid-May. My guess is 6-8 episode pod before Christmas and then a little break, and then a straight run like Feb-May.
For fans who wanted to have two MCU primetime shows in a single week, I’m sorry for your disappointment. For fans who wanted the fifth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to come sooner especially after this dynamite of a fourth season, I’m also sorry for your disappointment. It’s not easy to wait that long for a show high on its momentum. But hey, at least we have a billion other MCU shows to keep us busy.
As for it premiering hot on the heels of the Inhumans finale, the timing is very interesting considering how the season ended. Inhumans is said to feature a human character working for a government agency monitoring extraterrestrials and if any of you have seen the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finale, you know that things get galactic in the end.
