Description: Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films, as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage; Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), expert pilot and martial artist; Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), brilliant engineer; and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker, Skye (Chloe Bennet). ABC.com

Season End Status: This show survived yet again despite pulling low ratings through most of its fourth season. But it is at the 88-episode threshold that the syndication market prefers and anything beyond that is just padding to its encore run with ABC/Disney guaranteed to get their money back. For now, the network has decided to use this show to plug up an hour on low-viewership Fridays and perhaps it can continue there for a few more years if Disney wants to keep an Avengers tie-in on the small screen.

  1. Erik

    Definitely one of my favorite shows. Very happy that it is getting renewed. I always have to hold my breadth when it comes to sci-fi on ABC, especially after canceling “V”. That was very upsetting.
