'Agents of SHIELD' Likely To Get Renewed For Season 5; Network Executive Bullish About The Show’s Renewal
As May approaches, speculations are circulating as to whether or not "Agents of Shield" will be back for the 5th season. ABC President Channing Dungey provides her insight as to what the future of the series will be. With three new shows coming to the network, it was rumored that the Marvel show has seen its last days.
Heroic Hollywood reports that Dungey herself was bullish on the renewal of "Agents of Shield" for Season 5. "Absolutely. I'm very bullish on S.H.I.E.L.D. and we are excited about our production with Marvel, ABC Studios, and IMAX, which we are working on for next fall as well." Dungey said. She revealed that the episodes are getting better and stronger.
Dungey revealed that "Agents of Shield" is one of ABC's shows which constantly goes up to triple digits over a seven-day period. With Inhumans also in the calendar of the network, it is highly speculated that Season 5 will serve as the show's final landing. Despite drawing the smallest audience at only 248 million viewers weekly, the show has never been lacking for well-cast and root for characters.
While it is not huge ratings draw for ABC, Screen Rant reveals that "Agents of Shield" is a steady draw when it comes to overall viewership. It is also breaking grounds in the field of narrative territory. It is currently moving beyond the Ghost Rider story arc which was placed at the center in the first half of Season 4.
"Agents of Shield" stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso MacKenzie, John Hannah as Holden Radcliffe, and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons. The show airs every Tuesday 10 pm EST on the ABC Television Network.
