History

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is an American television series created for ABC by Joss Whedon, based on the Marvel Comics organization S.H.I.E.L.D. The series is produced by Marvel Television, and is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, sharing continuity with the films in that franchise. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D revolves around the character of Phil Coulson, with Clark Gregg reprising the role. A pilot, written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, and directed by Joss Whedon, was given the green light in late 2012 and filmed in early 2013. The series was officially ordered on May 10, 2013, and premiered on September 24, 2013.[1]

The first season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ended on May 13, 2014, and a second season was greenlit on May 8, 2014, with a premiere set for the Fall 2014 television season.[2]

On May 7, 2015, ABC renewed Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for a third season, and announced plans for a spin-off starring Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood as Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter were no longer moving forward.[3] It was later revealed that a pilot has been ordered for a Mockingbird centered spinoff, despite the previously cancelled plans.[4]

Season 3 premiered on September 29, 2015, with Luke Mitchell (Lincoln Campbell) and Henry Simmons (Alphonso "Mack" Mackenzie) joining the regular cast.[5][6][7]

In August 2015, ABC ordered a pilot for a spin-off show titled Marvel's Most Wanted. Starring Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood, the spin-off would focus on their characters Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter on the run after they left S.H.I.E.L.D. and formed an alliance with Dominic Fortune and his "niece" Christina Santos for their protection.[8][9] The two characters were subsequently written off the show in the March 2016 episode "Parting Shot" in order for the characters to move forward into the spin-off. Delroy Lindo and Fernanda Andrade were cast as Dominic Fortune and Christina Santos, respectively.[10][9] Oded Fehr was also cast in the pilot as a villain. Although the identity of Fehr's character was never revealed, Marvel promised he was a "well-known character from the comics."[9] ABC passed over a series order for the spin-off in May 2016.[11]

ABC renewed the series for a fourth season on March 3, 2016, before Season 3 returned from its midseason break.[12] Season 4 premiered on September 20, 2016 and moved to a 10 PM Eastern time-slot - one hour later than previous seasons.[13] The reason for the move to a later hour was to allow the show "to go a little bit edgier, go a little darker and take some risks," according to ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey.[14] Season 4 has introduced LMDs as a "major season-long theme" and Gabriel Luna as the Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider.[15][16] As of the fourth season, John Hannah (Holden Radcliffe) was listed as part of the regular cast.

ABC renewed Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for a fifth season. The series was moved to Fridays at 9:00 PM, and would replace Marvel's Inhumans in the line-up following its eight-episode run.[17][18] Natalia Cordova Buckley (Elena "Yo-Yo" Rodriguez), was promoted to series regular status.[19] Season 5 premiered on December 1, 2017[20]

On May 14, 2018, it was announced that this series had been renewed for a sixth 13-episode season.[21] Filming started on July 16, 2018,[22] and wrapped on December 18, 2018.[23] On March 30, 2019, it was announced that the sixth season would premiere on May 10, 2019.[24]

On November 16, 2018, it was announced ahead of the premiere of the sixth season, that this series had been renewed for a seventh season.[25] Filming started on February 20, 2019.[26] The final season debuted on May 27, 2020, moving to Wednesdays at 10pm,[27] with Enver Gjokaj reprising his role of Daniel Sousa from Marvel's Agent Carter.[28] On August 12, 2020, the series ended with a two-hour series finale at 9pm on ABC.

Notes

  • The Pilot was screened in its entirety at San Diego Comic-Con on 19 July 2013, and was screened again at the Disney D23 Expo on 11 August 2013.[29]
  • CTV announced in June 2013 that they hold the broadcast rights for Canada. In Australia, the show will be broadcast by Channel 7, which will be fast-tracked to premiere on the channel shortly after the U.S. premiere. On August 22, 2013, it was confirmed that Channel 4 would air the show in the United Kingdom, set to premiere after the U.S. premiere, on September 27, 2013.
  • In an August 2013 Entertainment Weekly interview, Joss Whedon said that "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is "basically a TV series of 'The Zeppo' an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which was a very deliberate deconstruction of a Buffy episode in order to star the person who mattered the least. The people who are ignored are the people I've been writing as my heroes from day one."[30]

Trivia

  • The 2009 comic book series Secret Warriors Vol 1 has contributed both characters and storylines to the show, with slight changes.
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Vol 3 in 2015 adapted the main cast from the show into Earth-616.
