Marvel’s Inhumans is already cancelled at ABC, and Agents Of SHIELD almost exited the stage before it.
Per Variety, the network wanted to cancel the superhero drama after four seasons, before Disney mandated a fifth (and likely final) season renewal:
“Inhumans” has not been the only source of friction between ABC and Marvel. Earlier this year, the mandate came down from Disney for ABC to renew its other Marvel drama, “Agents of SHIELD,” despite the desire by some at the network to end the series after four seasons. Having aired on Tuesdays since its inception, “SHIELD” is shifting to Friday nights this season when “Inhumans” finishes its initial eight-episode run.
Should ABC’s cancellation of Agents Of SHIELD have stuck? Happy Disney waded in? Hoping for a sixth season of the Marvel drama, or has it finally run out of luck?
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancellation status of Agents Of SHIELD Season 6…
