With its season finale airing next Tuesday, fans of Agents of SHIELD have been nervously awaiting the news of its renewal (or its cancellation), and today, ABC has made it official: the Marvel Comics-based television series will indeed return for a fifth season!
This new probably doesn’t come as too much of a surprise. Just this past weekend, Deadline reported that it heard through the grapevine that the series would be renewed. Still, it’s nice that it’s now official.
Not wasting any time, visual effects supervisor Mark Kolpack and executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen posted celebratory tweets.
