Marvel Entertainment has announced that it has handed out a seventh season order for “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”.
The news is a surprise as the series has often been one of those ‘on the bubble’ in recent years. The sixth season isn’t scheduled to go to air until the second half of 2019.
ABC president Channing Dungey announced the news today in a press release which indicates the same cast and crew are all coming back though pointedly there’s no mention of lead star Clark Gregg in the cast list which reads “Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley and Jeff Ward.
Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen serve as executive producers along with Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb.
