ABC Only Renewed AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Due To Pressure From Disney According To A New Report

Are you happy that ABC renewed Marvel's Agents of S,H.I.E.L.D. for a fifth season? Well, it turns out that ABC actually wanted to cancel the show at the end of its 4th season. Read on for more details...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has had an interesting 4-year run. It started off with strong ratings, but a lackluster response from fans. As the show progressed, it started to gain higher critical acclaim, but a decline in ratings that has not stopped since and as it turns out, ABC would have brought down the axe on the Marvel drama after the conclusion of its 4th season had Disney not intervened.

According to a new report from Variety, which goes into detail on the new television season at ABC, we've learned that not only has there been some friction between Marvel and
ABC,
but that ABC renewed Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. only after a mandate came down from Disney to renew the show. "Inhumans has not been the only source of friction between ABC and Marvel. Earlier this year, the mandate came down from Disney for ABC to renew its other Marvel drama, "Agents of SHIELD", despite the desire by some at the network to end the series after four seasons."

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is slated to return for its 5th season after Marvel's latest entry in its growing line of shows, The Inhumans, which has received terrible reviews thus far, concludes its 8-episode run.

What do you think about this revelation? Are you happy to see Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. live on? Are you worried about the growing tensions between Marvel and ABC? Let me know all your thoughts in the comments below!
