A couple of ABC shows have already been confirmed canceled and "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." season 5 is the latest series caught in danger of cutting off the run. There are a few reasons why the network would not renew the show next year for season 5. Are Marvel and ABC ditching "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." in favor of "The Inhumans"?
"Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." Season 5 Cancelation
Following the official cancelation of ABC series "Notorious" and "Conviction" (although they're still airing), latest word in the mill pointed out that "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has been in talks not to be renewed for season 5 next year. According to a recent report published by Screener TV last Tuesday, Nov. 22, the series "is becoming less useful." Screener TV has been known for predicting shows to be canceled correctly using its own Bear's methodology.
Release Of "The Inhumans"
The biggest fear of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." fans could be the release of Disney and ABC's "The Inhumans." To recall, the first three seasons of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." have been spent hugely on the establishment of the backstory of the Inhumans on silver screen. Making a show for the Inhumans seems to make a full-swing blow to ditch S.H.I.E.L.D.
Although the series remains standing on the balance beam for now, fans can't help but think season 4 might be its final run considering the Inhumans play a huge part and now they have their own set. In terms of branding, the same publication disclosed that "the show appears at this point to be completely disconnected from Marvel and ABC's current show, 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'"
Meanwhile, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" season 4 has been suffering from relatively low ratings which might as well be another reason for the cancelation. In adults category aged 18-49, the series was able claim 0.89 percent only of the bracket as of the latest. This is way below other ABC's veteran shows like "Grey's Anatomy" and "Modern Family" which both garnered more than 2 percent of audience share in their respective timeslots.
Even so, "Agents of Shied" could still run for another season in 2017-2018, but a shortened one. What do you think? Comment down below your thoughts!
