The end is near for Agents Of SHIELD.
EP Jeffrey Bell has further confirmed the upcoming fifth season finale is being treated as the series ender, in preparation for the Marvel drama’s cancellation, per EW:
“Right now, we’re writing a series end. because as far as we know, this could be it.”
With the spectre of cancellation, EP Maurissa Tancharoen insists there will be resolution in the series finale, while also leaving the door open for an unexpected sixth season renewal:
“We’ll never end something without the potential for more story. That’s how we’ve ended every season, because whenever we’ve come to the end of all the season’s past, we go into that mostly not knowing until the very last minute, so we’re basically doing the same thing to close out Season 5. It can fit well as a possible series finale, and it can fit well as just another season’s end.”
Adds EP Jed Whedon:
“You always want to leave the idea that there’s more stories, it’s a question of whether or not we will tell them. We have our end, and we’ll stick to it regardless, and we think it’ll work either way.”
Per insiders, Agents Of SHIELD is indeed destined for the cancellation graveyard.
