Back in May, it was announced that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 has been postponed to the summer of 2019. Now, ABC Entertainment President, Channing Dungey, finally has an explanation for the move.
In a recent interview with Deadline during the Television Critics Association summer session, when Dungey was asked if Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 could be last, she said the channel is hopeful that the show will prove successful in its summer run, leaving room for a possible season 7.
“We’ll see,” Dungey said. “I feel like last season was our strongest creative season ever and the fan base remains very loyal — and we do very well in delayed viewing. It’s my hope that by moving it to summer, where our live-same-day ratings are less important and it might be able to continue for long.”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was the first Marvel television series to be aired on the ABC channel in 2013. As season 5 got lower than expected ratings, the audiences were not sure about a new season. The show somehow narrowly escaped cancellation and is now ready to enter its sixth season which would run for only 13 episodes as opposed to the usual 22.
Notably, after the cancellation of Agent Carter and Inhumans, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is the currently only Marvel series that is currently airing on ABC.
During the interview, Dungey revealed that the channel is currently in discussion with Marvel to roll out another television show. She refused to shell out any other details about the show in question.
“In terms of Marvel, we have some things that we are in discussions with them right now that we are in development,” Dungrey said. “I’m very excited about it.”
It remains to be seen just what that project could be.
