However, the series will hit its landmark 100th episode on Friday, an installment that will serve as a “love letter” to the fans who have stuck with the series for half a decade, Marvel chief Jeph Loeb tells EW:
“In many ways, it’s a love letter to our fans who have stayed with us through five seasons, and gives out a number of secrets that maybe even they haven’t thought were secrets, and moves the story ahead in a way that’s quite remarkable. But more than anything else, it’s really a celebration of the family that is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
EP Jeffrey Bell adds:
“When we started talking about what a 100th episode should be, we felt it should tip its hand to the past. It should have a couple holy sh– shocking moments, and it should point the needle in some new and surprising direction.”
With cancellation on the horizon, the fifth season finale will also serve as a series ender, joining the one-and-done Inhumans in the graveyard.
