With the return of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC, Marvel Television’s flagship show is on many comic-lovers’ minds. Set to ramp up its LMD storyline, there’s sure to be a lot in store for our favorite agents now that they’re back. However, another up-and-coming ABC television series, The Inhumans, raises some questions for S.H.I.E.L.D., as both shows will feature inhuman characters.
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey had this to say about the possibility of the two shows coexisting on the network:
SHIELD is in its fourth season and every year, that show has gotten creatively stronger and better. It was the first out of the gate for us and with Marvel and we all have been learning a lot over the four years of that show. What we’re doing with Imax is very different and I think it’s going to feel and look very different from what they’re doing on Netflix. Hopefully there’s a world for me where those shows exist side-by-side on our air and are two different pieces of music that exist together in the same landscape.
Only time will tell whether these shows can exist side-by-side or not, but until that day comes, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will continue to be the only place on television with inhuman characters until The Inhumans launches on ABC Tuesday, September 26.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. features Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson/Quake, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie, and John Hannah as Holden Radcliffe.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Tuesdays at 10:00-11:00 p.m. EST on the ABC Television Network. Here’s our review of last night’s episode, titled “Broken Promises,” plus easter eggs and other references you may have missed.
