Deadline reports Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD will end after its seventh season.
Last last year, ABC renewed Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD for a seventh season, months before the sixth year of the series debuted. Now, Executive Vice President of Marvel Television Jeph Leob has confirmed Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, which debuted in the fall of 2013, will officially end after season seven.
When asked why the decision was made the end Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD after seven seasons, Jeph Loeb stated that they want to conclude the story on their terms:
The simplest answer is so that we can end on our terms, really.
How many shows do you know that just suddenly ended, and you feel like, but wait a minute, there was more. Yes, in the chronology of this is we thought Season 5 was the end. If you go back and you look at the end of that season, it is written that way. Actually, the last episode of that season is called “The End.” Honestly, we thought we were turning out the lights and going home when we got a call from ABC that said, the material is so strong, do you think you have another season, do you think you have another 13 because we sort of like this idea of doing it again.
In the meantime, the sixth season continues tomorrow with the episode titled “Leap” and you can read the official synopsis below!
