ABC and Marvel have announced that ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’ has been renewed for a sixth series following a strong campaign from fans to continue the adventure of the agents.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has ordered a shortened series of the show consisting of only 13 episodes, much like the announcement of ‘Gotham’s’ final shorter season.
Marvel Television’s first live-action comics series usually features up to 22 episodes in each series, but this shortened episode count does lead me to think this may the shows last series. It’s still an international draw for ABC, producers ABC Studios and Marvel Television though, so only time will tell!
This Friday sees the Season 5 finale at 9:00 PM ET on ABC. Coulson’s life or death is the challenge the team finds themselves in, as the wrong decision will cause the destruction of Earth!
