Agents Of SHIELD & Once Upon A Time Renewed For New Seasons

There’s a new boss at the ABC network in the States, entertainment president Channing Dungey, and one of her first moves is to break with the tradition of making fans sweat until late May wondering if they’re favourite shows will be returning for the next TV season.

Merida SHIELD

Instead she’s given early renewals to 14 shows including a fourth season for Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD and a sixth season for Once Upon A Time. Cue dancing in the virtual streets of the interwebs for fans of both shows! But… are there any Disney franchises left for Once Upon A Time to reinvent? If this year’s Jungle Book is huge smash hit will season six end up looking more like a nature documentary? Our dream would be to see Baymax and his mates on the show. (It ain’t gonna happen…)

Agents Of SHIELD’s renewal would also seem to be good news for the Marvel’s Most Wanted spin-off featuring Bobbi and Hunter. ABC would hardly have moved ahead with that if SHIELD had been cancelled, surely? Though notable by its absence from the list of renewals is Marvel’s other show Agent Carter, which has been getting great fan and critical reaction but precious few viewers. Will Most Wanted fill the gap?

SHIELD hasn’t been a ratings smash but it has been holding steady this year (and the critical reaction has been much improved) while Once Upon A Time has been getting very healthy ratings on Sunday nights.

FYI, other less-Buzzy shows on the ABC renewed list include: America’s Funniest Home Videos, The Bachelor, Black-ish, Dancing With the Stars, Fresh Off the Boat, The Goldbergs, Grey’s Anatomy, How To Get Away With Murder, The Middle, Modern Family, Scandal, Shark Tank and Quantico. Is Dungey just trying to make her job easier by not having to commission anything new.

No news on Castle yet, but the fate of that show appears to be less about ratings and more about whether its stars, Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, want to sign on for a ninth season.
