Agents of SHIELD Renewed for Season 5
Fantastic news Marvel fans! ABC has officially renewed Agents of SHIELD for a fifth season! This news comes on the heels of a slew of renewals and cancellations from ABC which have been announced throughout this week. Agents of SHIELD is currently Marvel’s cornerstone comic book show on ABC, so it makes sense that they would want it to continue.
This news was first shared by Agents of SHIELD’s visual effects supervisor Mark Kolpack. It was then confirmed by executive producer and co-creator Maurissa Tancharoen. Clark Gregg also shared a great photo in reaction to the renewal. Marvel also confirmed the news in a quick post. I’m sure we’ll get casting confirmations soon as well.
#AgentsofSHIELD is officially picked up for SEASON 5, Agents!!!!
Everyone take a deep breath and a huge cheer.

Agents of SHIELD’s fourth season will conclude next Tuesday in a final showdown between AIDA and the Ghost Rider. Both AIDA and Ghost Rider were introduced this season alongside the Darkhold and the Framework. So far these characters and storylines have brought our favorite SHIELD agents to the brink of tragedy, romance, heartbreak and a terrifying anti-Inhuman, Hydra-led new world order.
Agents of SHIELD currently airs Tuesdays at 10 PM on ABC.
“MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 4:
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” returns with a vengeance for the fourth exciting season in an all new time period, Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. ET. In the aftermath of their journey to another planet, Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the team were driven more than ever to put an end to the Hydra organization. Little did they know that they were up against the deadliest threat they’ve ever faced – an extremely powerful Inhuman, Hive, who was transported back from Maveth in the body of their worst enemy, Grant Ward. The team was able to thwart and kill Hive and take down Hydra, but they are all still mourning the death of fellow agent and Inhuman, Lincoln Campbell.
In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimatized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director (Jason O’Mara) to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack (Henry Simmons), and together they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of Enhanced people, aka Inhumans. They have been trying to track down and capture Daisy (Chloe Bennet), aka Quake, who has gone rogue in an attempt to atone for sins from the past. But with the world believing that Daisy is a dangerous outlaw who has taken down banks and bridges, the new Director has no qualms about taking her down for good. Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant.
Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna) will roar into the lives of Agent Coulson and the team as a junkyard mechanic who can turn on a dime into the terrifying Ghost Rider. Will Robbie be a friend or foe to S.H.I.E.L.D. – as well as the world, itself? Meanwhile, Fitz discovers that socially awkward genius and friend Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) has started putting the finishing touches on a new, secret invention.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons and Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” was co-created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, who also serve as executive producers along with Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb.
