Marvel's 'Agents of SHIELD' Renewed for Shortened Season 6 on ABC

ABC released their full schedule today, and revealed that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 will return rather later than expected. The shorter episode order could provide some fresh creative freedom for S.H.I.E.L.D., which has already successfully experimented with "pod-style" storytelling in recent seasons, telling largely self-contained, 8-12 episode arcs.

With the film, which will certainly find a way to reverse Thanos' power play and bring back some, if not all, of the universe, set to hit theaters weeks before the end of the traditional broadcast TV season, it'll be the flawless opportunity for S.H.I.E.L.D. Channing Dungey remarked that she has no knowledge of if or how Infinity War will come into play on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6. Whether or not this is the case (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. seems to be setting itself early on in the film's timeline so far) it's clear that Thanos' power will have an indelible effect on the show as it continues.

The show is the only Marvel property to survive more than two seasons on basic cable. The announcement comes after the network officially handed out a sixth-season renewal to the Marvel series last night, consisting of 13-episodes. This series follows the agents who were transported to the future to find that the world had been destroyed.

The season five finale of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." airs on ABC this Friday, May 18. Regardless, fans can breathe a sigh of relief that the series will indeed return, if in a more abbreviated form.
