Good news, agents! ABC has renewed “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” for a fourth season. Deadline reports that ABC included “S.H.I.E.L.D.” in a series of early renewals that also includes “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” “How To Get Away with Murder” and “Once Upon a Time.”
The show follows Director Phil Coulson’s S.H.I.E.L.D. team, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s resident spy organization. Though S.H.I.E.L.D. was dismantled in “Captain America: The Winter Solider,” Coulson has reestablished it with characters like Daisy Johnson, Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse and Melinda May.
Most recently, the show has tackled the MCU’s growing Inhuman population, with Daisy creating a specialized team of Inhuman agents tasked with helping others of their kind as they adjust to their new abilities. Though they have not been officially titled such in the show, they will become the Secret Warriors, based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name. This will likely be an issue that continues into the show’s fourth season when it returns this fall.
It is unclear at this time if “Agent Carter,” which airs during “S.H.I.E.L.D.’s” midseason break, will also be renewed.
