AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.: The New World Order Establishes Itself In Stills For Season 4 Episode 16: "What If..."
As we approach the end of March, it's still uncertain whether fans will be treated to a fifth season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., although with the fourth season set to resume in just two weeks time, an announcement about the show's future should be just around the corner, possibly in early-May, if not sooner.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is still on hiatus for two more weeks, but ABC has gone ahead and released three promotional stills previewing the episode. Come take a look at the return of Grant Ward!
As it stands, it is currently the second-lowest rated show on ABC's primetime schedule (after Quantico and the now-canceled Conviction), averaging a 0.75 in the 18-49 demo and around 2.4 million viewers on a weekly basis. However, those numbers are a little top heavy as the most recent episode on February 21st was only able to pull in a 0.63 and 2.0 million viewers. This is, of course, a considerable drop from last season, but the dip in performance can likely be attributed to the show's move to a later timeslot. Now, whether the higher-ups at ABC are happy with those numbers, that's something we'll find out in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, ABC has released three intriguing stills from the midseason premiere, titled "What If...," featuring Fitz, Daisy, and a returning Grant Ward. Check them out below:
HYDRA HAS WON, AND THE WORLD IS UPSIDE DOWN, ON ABC'S 'MARVEL'S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.'
Brett Dalton Guest Stars as Grant Ward
"What If... " - Hail the New World Order! Daisy and Simmons uncover secrets and lies in a world gone mad. With Hydra in control, they are our only hope to save everyone, on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," TUESDAY, APRIL 4 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.
In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimatized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director (Jason O’Mara) to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack (Henry Simmons), and together they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of Enhanced people, aka Inhumans. They have been trying to track down and capture Daisy (Chloe Bennet), aka Quake, who has gone rogue in an attempt to atone for sins from the past. But with the world believing that Daisy is a dangerous outlaw who has taken down banks and bridges, the new Director has no qualms about taking her down for good. Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant.
