Deadline is reporting that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s will come to an end after the upcoming 7th season.
As viewers may have realized, season 5 was initially the ending, as the producers and writers themselves thought it would be the last season, but ABC had other plans and gave them two more seasons. However now the time has really come to say goodbye to our favorite agents.
This announcement comes hours before the show’s panel at San Diego Comic Con. As to why it is ending now, Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel TV says:
So we can actually build a season that will tie up any threads that are there. To make sure that we come to a conclusion that’s satisfying to the fans, to the cast, to Marvel, and to ABC.
When you know that’s what you’re doing, you can take greater risks, of life and death. Those kinds of decisions suddenly now are real on the table because you’re not playing how do we undo this when we get to the next season. You’re playing that this is going to be the end of the story.”
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is currently on its sixth season and will return next year for its last.
