Marvel’s Inhumans is already cancelled at ABC, and Agents Of SHIELD almost exited the stage before it.
Per Variety, the network wanted to cancel the superhero drama after four seasons, before Disney mandated a fifth (and likely final) season renewal:
“Inhumans” has not been the only source of friction between ABC and Marvel. Earlier this year, the mandate came down from Disney for ABC to renew its other Marvel drama, “Agents of SHIELD,” despite the desire by some at the network to end the series after four seasons. Having aired on Tuesdays since its inception, “SHIELD” is shifting to Friday nights this season when “Inhumans” finishes its initial eight-episode run.
Should ABC’s cancellation of Agents Of SHIELD have stuck? Happy Disney waded in? Hoping for a sixth season of the Marvel drama, or has it finally run out of luck?
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancellation status of Agents Of SHIELD Season 6…
ABC shouldn’t of cancelled Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D in the first place, well done to Disney for making ABC renew it again. I hope they do a Season 6 has well I enjoy watching the program.
nail in coffin then. If I was the producer, I would wrap the show up in season 5 but no doubt there will be a big cliffhanger because big cliffhanger = cancelation in cult TV world.
Ridiculous. Season 4 was absolutely brilliant and if the big chiefs of ABC can’t see that they don’t know what quality tv is. Disney should say up yours ABC we will go to other networks and have them show Season 6.
ABC & Disney are owned by the same company.

that is so true….i love every episode b/c they always leave me guessing. greatest show ever!!!
I’m really tired of networks not giving shows a chance. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Inhumans or not, but I do. I’m not completely hooked, but I’m willing to keep watching to see where it goes.

Last season’s story line with the Framework was the Matrix with supernatural overtones. In Marvel canon the Darkhold is what caused vampirism (including Dracula). As I recall it was written by a powerful “elder god” called Chthon at the dawn of the world, a being similar in power to Doromu or Citorak (other insanely powerful evil magic beings in the Marvel milieu).
For this book to impart the knowledge it did on Agents of Shield, to me, is a radical break from continuity. If they had made the plot hook an artifact of the Eternals or Deviants that would fit in with established continuity and still had the science that is so advanced it looks like magic supernatural feel (which is what they are supposed to have).
I think that is why it was less popular … the break from continuity. I’ve only seen two episodes involving the Kree this season, but it’s already better – they are doing a very good job with the Kree.
Oh, and as for SHIELD… DO NOT CANCEL!!!

There are more fans than ABC knows that love MAOS
I like it. It makes sense that they will cancel it! All the shows I like, get cancelled. I would like for someone to bring back “Wild, wild, west,” and “Simon and Simon.” They were my two favorite shows, growing up.
