Traditionally with ABC Network, they don’t do renewals until their ABC Upfront that takes place in May every year. But with a new president, it turns out that things are changing up as ABC just announced today that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been renewed for Season 4.
This comes right after Agent Carter wrapped its second season this week and as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is about to come back from its long hiatus next week. Usually most of the shows on ABC that are looking good for being renewed, don’t get officially announced to have gotten additional seasons until May.
Sadly, Agent Carter’s status however, is unknown as it wasn’t part of the big announcement and it might not get announced until May at the ABC Upfront. Its future may also be announced weeks before the Upfront.
“BIGGER THREATS LOOM AHEAD AS THE TEAM TRIES TO STRIKE DOWN HYDRA, ON THE MIDSEASON PREMIERE OF “MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.” ON ABC
In the midseason premiere, “Bouncing Back,” in the aftermath of his trip to Maveth, Coulson is more determined than ever to get to Gideon Malick and put an end to Hydra once and for all. Meanwhile, Daisy and the team encounter more Inhumans who have powers like they’ve never seen before, but will they be friends or enemies of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
No longer able to keep powered people out of the public eye, Daisy and Mack press forward to find more Inhumans, building a team of secret warriors whose mission is to train and protect powered people. However, the growing presence of Inhumans proves to be a polarizing issue, and the S.H.I.E.L.D. team must face conflicting public opinions and defend their team from groups who have a more extreme ideology.
The divide between those who want to protect Inhumans and those who seek to destroy them is constantly widening, and Hydra, now strengthened by Grant Ward, looms once again. However, Ward is no longer the same villainous traitor that they once knew, and the team faces an all-new enemy, whose motivations, goals and strengths are unclear. Uncertain about who (or what) they are facing, the stakes for S.H.I.E.L.D. and their assembled group of Secret Warriors are higher than ever, bringing some members of the team closer together and driving others apart. Will S.H.I.E.L.D. be able to stop one of the most powerful Inhumans to walk the Earth?”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns next Tuesday, March 8, 9/8c on ABC with the mid-season premiere “Bouncing Back”.
