While The CW has renewed most of their comic book shows for the next season, FOX’s Gotham and ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. still haven’t been renewed. With Network Upfronts coming up in the next month, we will definitely know by then what the fate of these two shows are, but it appears that chances for renewal are looking good.
Entertainment Weekly reported today that both shows are most likely going to be back for the 2017-2018 TV Season. For Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., EW stated that despite some lower numbers for the show this year (even though it has performed better than previous ABC shows at Tuesdays at 10 PM), ABC will most likely be bringing back the series for at least one more season.
“With Inhumans coming to television this fall and S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s rating falling hard, it’s easy to suspect Agent Coulson’s division will be shuttered. We’re hearing the team will probably get one more assignment (despite that whole Ghost Rider thing).”
With Gotham, which has also been getting lower ratings this year (which has been the case for a lot of FOX shows this TV season), EW reported that a Season 4 is most likely going to happen. Given all the talks at WonderCon by the cast and crew, it definitely seems like the season three finale is already setting up a fourth season that would most likely be focusing heavily on Ra’s Al Ghul (played by Game of Thrones’ Alexander Siddig) who is coming towards the end of this season.
