ABC/Marvel have extended Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. – not in the form of a Season 5 renewal, but six-part digital miniseries spinoff, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Slingshot, launching Dec. 13 on ABC.com:
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Slingshot is set in the world of the hit television series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Taking place shortly before the beginning of Season 4, this digital series features the character of Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez (Natalia Cordova-Buckley), an Inhuman with the ability to move with super-speed. As a person with powers, she must sign the recently instituted Sokovia Accords, the worldwide agreement that regulates and tracks those with super powers. However, the restrictions of the Accords are in direct conflict with a personal mission she’s desperate to fulfill, a mission that will test her abilities, her allegiances, and will include some tense encounters with our most popular S.H.I.E.L.D. team members.
Slingshot will help bridge the gap during Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s winter lowatus, though the future of the series remains uncertain with companion/replacement series Marvel’s The Inhumans arriving fall 2017.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5…
