Initially slated to premiere its fifth season in January of 2018, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will now be coming back much earlier than that, according to ABC Chief Channing Dungey.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly at the Television Critics Association’s press tour today, Dungey confirmed that the beloved Marvel show will be coming back to ABC immediately after Inhumans finishes up its eight episodes, so probably around late November.
“It’s going to come on right after Inhumans. As soon as the eight episodes of Inhumans is done, then S.H.I.E.L.D. will begin.”

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, and Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie.
In the aftermath of their journey to another planet, Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the team were driven more than ever to put an end to the Hydra organization. Little did they know that they were up against the deadliest threat they’ve ever faced – an extremely powerful Inhuman, Hive, who was transported back from Maveth in the body of their worst enemy, Grant Ward. The team was able to thwart and kill Hive and take down Hydra, but they are all still mourning the death of fellow agent and Inhuman, Lincoln Campbell.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season five will now be airing in late fall and its twenty two episodes will be airing without any breaks.
