AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 6 Won't Air Until The Summer Of 2019; ABC Thinks More Seasons Are Possible

After the announcement that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would be receiving a sixth season, fans of the show were able to breathe a sigh of relief, but now it looks like they'll be waiting a while for Season 6.

Fans of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. rejoiced when they learned the Marvel series would earn a sixth season, however some new details have been revealed, which may put a bit of a damper on their excitement.

Following the show’s renewal, ABC released the full lineup of shows set to premiere this fall. Though a number of the show’s renewed by the network were included on the list, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was noticeably absent. And the reason behind its exclusion is because the series won’t be airing in the fall.

Instead, fans will have to wait several months until the summer of 2019. No exact date has been given for the Season 6 premiere, but it is highly likely that the show won’t return until after the release of Avengers 4.

Aside from the long wait, the show’s move to the summer is a surprise to the fans who expected the show to deal more directly with the events of Avengers: Infinity War, especially since the Marvel Studios film has been referenced several times over the past few episodes.

Fortunately for fans, ABC's President of Entertainment, Channing Dugney, says the show’s sixth season isn’t meant to act as “a final season.”

In fact, Dugney is optimistic the show’s move to the summer may improve its longevity:

“The show has a loyal passionate base. It does incredibly well in delayed viewing. By putting it in the summer we feel we can super-serve the show’s audience and possibly have it on the air longer.”

In all, it seriously looks as if there are no plans to bring Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to an end anytime soon, despite such a huge shift in when the show will air. Rather, it looks like we can expect more seasons with our favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. agents as long as the ratings remain strong.

Now, what do you folks make of the long wait between the Season 5 finale and the premiere of Season 6, and are you happy with it moving to the summer? Whatever your thoughts, make sure to comment below.
