Agents of SHIELD producers Jeffrey Bell and Jed Whedon have confirmed that the show’s final season will feature Marvel Cinematic Universe tie-ins.
The road for Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD has been a bumpy one. Debuting a little over a year after The Avengers, Agents of SHIELD had something of a mixed response at first. As time went on, the show would gradually grow into its own thing. Early seasons featured plot line crossovers with characters from the Thor films, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, as time went on the show made less and less use of tie-ins to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe and its current status in it has been called into question by fans. However, this final season will contain tie-ins to the larger MCU.
During a recent interview with Deadline, Agents of SHIELD showrunners Jeffery Bell and Jed Whedon and executive producer Joseph Lobe spoke about the final season and what it meant to them. They also confirmed that the final season would tie into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe but did not say how extensive this would be:
WHEDON: We’re going to bump into something.
LOEB: (laughs) Yeah, we’ll bump into something.
BELL: Something will definitely happen.
