ABC Commits To A Fifth Season Of Agents Of SHIELD

ABC gives a thumbs up to an additional, fifth season of the network’s Marvel superhero series Agents of SHIELD.

The show’s fourth season will wrap up next week, but that hasn’t stopped ABC from putting in an order for another season of the program. It’s fair to conclude that the network’s confidence in the show’s ability to perform remains strong.

The news was broken by Maurissa Tancharoen, the series’ showrunner and executive producer, on Twitter. She conveyed this information simply enough, mentioning Season Five before stating “Go team.” She offered no details, such as the number of episodes or planned storylines, about the planned season.

Superherohype, the source of the story, shares the following information about the show’s cast:

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD stars Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie and Jason O’Mara as Jeffrey Mace.

Guest starring are Natalia Cordova-Buckley as Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez, Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes/Ghost Rider, Mallory Jansen as Aida, Adrian Pasdar as Brigadier General Glenn Talbot, Jordan Rivera as Hope Mackenzie, Patrick Cavanaugh as Burrows, Zach McGowan as The Superior, Joris Jarsky as Sergei, Zibby Allen as Lt. Evans, Joel Stoffer as silhouetted man and Karole Foreman as waitress.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
