The answer to when we’ll see the thirteen-episode sixth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been answered. Ahead of the network’s Upfront presentation in New York today, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey revealed the start date for season six of the series.
We’ll see the return of Coulson and the gang in Summer of 2019.
That late release date makes sense based on a rumor that’s going around about this next season. That rumor says that season six will help set up a new series on Disney’s upcoming streaming service that launches in Fall of 2019.
Releasing it in Summer 2019 also means it’ll probably be after the events of Avengers 4. That means that not only will the series have to deal with the post-snap world after Infinity War, presumably the whole cast will be able to return in case any of them become dusted after the season finale this week.
