One of the biggest payoffs having the fifth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiere in December as opposed to its usual September date was the production having ample time to film more episodes, resulting in an uninterrupted season air date. That was a thing we were promised originally when this was announced. Sadly, a new report indicates that this is no longer the case that Season 5 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will indeed have a hiatus come February, thanks to the Winter Olympics (as pointed out by one of our regular readers!)

According to Comicbook.com, ABC is slated to either air reruns or something completely different until the end of the month. So yeah, no Lighthouse space escapades until we get to March folks. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s 100th episode is set to air on March 9 so when the show returns, we’ll at least see episodes of epic proportions.
