ABC President Talks ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 5 Potential

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is finally returning from its winter hiatus tonight as Season 4B kicks off the second arc of the year dubbed “LMD”. However, fans have been wondering whether the show will be back for a fifth season or not. In a new interview with ABC President Channing Dungey, she was asked about what the future of the Marvel series is. Dungey first spoke about how she feels about the state of Marvel Television on the ABC Network.

“Look, we are incredibly encouraged. Season 4 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been creatively the strongest season we’ve had yet. The episodes just keep getting better and stronger. And that’s another one for us that we moved from 9 to 10 and yet even though the HUD levels are softer at 10, the live-same-day has remained the same and that’s another one of our shows which regularly goes up triple digits over the seven-day period, anywhere from 100 to 110 percent.”

So when she was asked directly about the future of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Dungey said she is very bullish on a Season 5 renewal for the series.

“Absolutely. I’m very bullish on S.H.I.E.L.D. and we’re also really excited about our production with Marvel, ABC Studios, and IMAX, which we are working on for next fall as well.”
