Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter renewed; spin-off series cancelled

05.08.2015

Marvel fans can rest assured that their small screen fix will continue for at least one more year. ABC has renewed both Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter for a third and second season, respectively. It is expected that the shows will follow the same scheduling pattern as they did this season with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuting in the fall before taking a hiatus in January. Agent Carter would then fill in for a limited run of episodes before S.H.I.E.L.D.'s second half finishes it's run.

In other news, the network has cancelled plans to spin Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. characters into their own series. The spin-off was going to be based on storylines set-up in the final episodes of the current season but it appears the strength of these two is better served on the Clark Gregg-headed series. This does not impact John Ridley's spin-off which is still in development. Ridley's current ABC series American Crime was also renewed for a second season.

While Agent Carter was vastly superior overall to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Joss Whedon-created series has been stronger this year than last with a renewed focus on the introduction of the Inhumans to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I would anticipate with Marvel Studios planning an INHUMANS film for 2019, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could potentially have at least three more seasons of safety.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s season finale airs Tuesday, May 12th on ABC.

I posted earlier today how I would prefer the people behind Arrow/Flash to focus on making Arrow better than producing the new Legends spin off. Seems like Marvel feel that way about AoS. I'm personally delighted with that - really enjoying the second season of AoS and don't see the point of another Shield series. As for Carter - really don't get what is going on with that - no network in the UK seems to want it.

Great news!

The spinoff sounded like such a stupid idea, and AoS needs both characters to stay relevant.

"While Agent Carter was vastly superior overall to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..."
Whut???
I found Agent Carter barely watchable. It looked cheap as hell, had a thin plot with a forgettable villain and lacked any sense of accomplishment while they went completely overboard with the misogyny.

I am happy for the SHIELD renewal (but hope they get guest stars for next season who unlike Dichen Lachman can actually act) but don't think I am gonna watch a new season of Carter

I found Agent Carter vastly superior to AoS. So to each their own.

At least it was different and original.

I enjoyed both. I wouldn't say either one was "vastly superior" to the other. They both worked in different ways.

I agree that Carter was NOT vastly superior. I watched the entire season for the sake of continuity but I was tremendously bored with it

while flawed, I still found Carter superior to AOS simply for intriguing me to finish the first season.

I struggled to get through the first 4 episodes of Shield before bailing. And it looked way more "cheap as hell" with its larger scale than Carter ever did.

So glad that Agent Carter is coming back and that we get to venture into that time period again.

Agreed. when they stated they were gonna do another shield tv show. I Was starting to think GOD TOO MUCH
with
Arrow
Flash
Shield
Agent Carter
Daredevil
Incoming LEgends tv show

I find it would be exhausting adding another 22 episode Comic book series to my plate

Well, I agree. But I would remove Arrow from that list and replace it with Gotham. Will check out one or two episodes of Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.

I too prefer Mockingbird and Hunter stick with AOS rather than another series. So I am okay with this cancellation. I also really enjoyed Agent Carter so it will be nice to see more of how her and Stark help create Shield.
Not really too interested in Legends of Tomorrow though.

Don't forget "Powers" which was just renewed for a second season. S1 suffered a bit from the visibly low budget but IMO conceptually that was the most progressive and imaginative superhero show of the season.
