#46 Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD (ABC)
The sci-fi action drama is set to end with its upcoming Season 7, which is slated to premiere this summer. In an interview with Deadline last July, Marvel Television chief Jeph Loeb noted that the cancellation was Marvel’s choice, and not ABC’s.
When network president Channing Dungey reached out to Marvel with the offer of Season 7, the creative team sat down to decide the show’s future. “We all came to the conclusion that getting another season is so flattering, so lovely, so amazing, but how about if we go back and say, yes, but this is it,” Loeb recalled. “So we can actually build a season that will tie up any threads that are there. To make sure that we come to a conclusion that’s satisfying to the fans, to the cast, to Marvel, and to ABC.”
