Our favorite agents return for two more seasons with Agents of Shield with Season 6 completed and the final Season 7 scheduled to be wrapped up by 2020. The catch, however, is that the remaining two seasons are shortened with just 13 episodes apiece. Here’s what we think of Agents of Shield Season 6.
After a terrific season ender with Season 5, most viewers and fans did not quite mind if that was the finale of the series. Obviously, we all wanted at least a season more. Thankfully, the TV gods answered our prayers with Agents of Shield returning for not just one but two more seasons albeit shortened.
All our favorite characters are returning with Clark Gregg and Ming-Na Wen leading the way. Fan favorite Chloe Bennet who stars as the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent with superpowers Daisy Johnson/Quake. The duo of Fitz-Simmons (Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge) and Mack (Henry Simmons) and another superheroine Yo-Yo (Natalia Cordova-Buckley) also return along with Deke (Jeff Ward) who was quickly updated to series-regular.
Superhero movies have been a major hit for the past decade or so. With the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) having been the major contributor. But, there’s more to the Marvel than just Iron Man, Spider-Man or the Avengers. Marvel’s Agents of Shield, which is directly tied to the MCU, proves it so. Clark Gregg’s Phil Coulson who is basically the cornerstone where the show was built after first appearing in the MCU films with Iron Man 1 and 2, Thor, and The Avengers remains to be the show’s most important character.
Six seasons later and Agents of Shield continues to dive deeper into more of its characters. Most notably with Chloe Bennet’s Daisy Johnson/Quake whose character continues to be one of the show’s greatest assets.
Setting up the Finale
Agents of Shield season 6 starts off strongly even with just the first episode. Although, you may want to see the recap before diving in. Season 6 came out a year after season 5, after all. But, once you’re all caught up, expect all the good qualities that made Agents of Shield a success. Great pacing and creative storytelling.
This season explores some not-so-familiar territories in Agents of Shield, Space and Time Travel. This, due in part to that cliffhanger on Fitz’ fate at the end of season 5. New worlds and more powerful cosmic enemies await the team. Not to worry, though, because the team and Fitz find an ally too in Enoch (Joel Stoffer), a Chronicom, a race of genderless synthetic creatures, which is also one of the threats introduced this season.
We’ll have to wait a few more months for season 7 which will come out in the middle of 2020 but do not fret. The shooting is all wrapped up for the series finale so it’s just a test of patience now.
Skip or Watch?
This 13-episode Agents of Shield Season 6 is more of a preparation for the ultimate finale in 2020 with Season 7. Still, there is plenty to love and enjoy here that will ultimately keep you wanting for the final Season to come sooner rather than later.
