Basic info and storyline

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is an American action and superhero adventure TV series based on characters from a fictional spy and counter terrorism agency set in the Marvel Comics Universe. Created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, the show is produced by Marvel Television, Mutant Enemy Productions and ABC Studios. The first season of the show, also known as Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered on ABC on September 24, 2013, and season 4 kicked off on September 20, 2016 with all-new 22 episodes.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division) is a fictional peacekeeping and espionage agency in a fantasy world of superheroes and aliens. Marvel Cinematic Universe is home to several other films and TV series franchises. The series follows Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), Daisy “Skye” Johnson (Chloe Bennet) and other agents on their dangerous missions. The fourth season features S.H.I.E.L.D. becoming a legit group once again, and Coulson returning to his regular life as a field agent now going after more enhanced people.

Current season and renewal expectations

During its debut season, the show averaged 6.86 million viewers per episode, but the numbers dropped by nearly 35% in its sophomore season. Season 4 debuted to 3.44 million loyal fans with a demo rating of 1.1 and a share of 4, which is a reasonable number compared to the preceding seasons’ averages, yet can be considered a decline compared to last season’s premiere. The network decided to renew the show for season 4 despite a sharp decline, and so far viewers are not disappointed. It’s still too early to to determine whether ABC will renew Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D for season 5, but most reviewers agree that the award-nominated show deserves another chance. However, although the series has enjoyed stellar reviews from the launch on and has two Emmy nominations under its belt, it will need a boost in the ratings this year to secure another renewal. Stay tuned for further announcements.
