Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will soon be back on our tv screens as season six gets under way in the US in May.

The show was thought to be headed for cancellation due to relatively disappointing viewing figures, despite its growing popularity with fans. However, ABC gave it a 13-episode order for season six, airing around the time Infinity War: Endgame hits cinemas, and building on the events of that movie.

Then ABC surprised everyone by scheduling a seventh season, about to start shooting.

Den Of Geek caught up with S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg during the Captain Marvel press junket, and Gregg is pretty sure that the seventh season will be Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s last.

“That’s the word I’ve heard,” Gregg commented. “The announcement I read was two more seasons, six and seven.”

Although the Marvel mainstay admits he doesn’t yet know much about how season seven will progress, he is excited for the fans to catch season six.

“People who have been on the journey with me and with Phil Coulson are going to get something very, very different.” he enthuses.

Clark Gregg will be on the big screen in a week or so, as a much younger Coulson takes his first steps as a S.H.I.E.L.D. operative in Captain Marvel.  And should season seven be the end for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Clark would not be averse to the character turning up again on the big screen:

“I feel so grateful for the journey that I’ve had, that I’m hesitant to ask for anything. I’ll never say no when the Marvel Universe calls up. I feel so grateful for what I’ve done” he said.

The UK air date for season six hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it’s expected to arrive here sometime in the Summer.
