‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 5 Won’t Premiere Until January 2018

Agents of SHIELD

At the ABC Upfronts earlier this week, it was confirmed that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would be moving from Tuesday nights to Friday nights and will be in a new time slot as well, airing an hour earlier than it usually did, at 9/8c. Now, it’s being confirmed by VFX supervisor, Mark Kolpak, that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. won’t be premiering until January 2018, with a full run of its twenty two episodes airing with no break in-between.

Kolpak took to Twitter to relay the information, both of which have been removed for some reason, possibly being due to the fact that it was too early for the information to be released. However, if you’d like to see the official tweets, you can go here.

The show recently aired its season four finale, which saw the return of Ghost Rider. If the show is to indeed return in January, then it’ll be after the eight-episode run of Marvel’s Inhumans, which is set to premiere this fall.

“Marvel’s 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, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie and John Hannah as Holden Radcliffe.

5 Reasons ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.LD’ Is The Best Superhero Series

Previous1 of 6

Agents of SHIELD FrameworkWithout a doubt, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s fourth season is its strongest. Wrapping up on Tuesday, May 16 on ABC, the finale marked the end of one of the best superhero/comic show seasons in recent memory.

From Ghost Rider to L.M.D.s to the Framework, the show took viewers on a fast-paced, interconnected thrill ride that took our beloved agents in practically every direction imaginable. Placing obstacle after obstacle in their path, the show continued to highlight why its characters are some of the strongest and most fully realized out there.

Whether you were excited to see Ghost Rider flame on and crack some skulls, on the edge of your seat when Life-Model Decoys made it difficult to tell who was real and who was a robot, or sucked into the alternate reality of the Framework and the Agents of Hydra arc, there was surely something this season that got you excited about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and had you wishing the show would be renewed for another outing.

Thankfully, a fifth season is coming, but before we get there, let’s take a look at the 5 reasons Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s fourth season is A-game superhero TV.

    It’s gonna be too long of a wait but at least it’s good to know there won’t be any breaks. (Which too many shows do nowadays)
