As I’ve talked about previously, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been renewed for season 5. Last week’s article went into detail on everything we know so far. This week, I’m going to play the “wild speculation game” and try to guess at what might be happening during this next season.
I actually have a couple different thoughts on how this can play out. First, we’re going to talk about the potential of completely changing the format of the series. Then, we’re going to talk about a hybrid format which retains the “pods” from season 4 but incorporates some elements of my new format idea.
Before we get started, there is one assumption I am making: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to take at least 3 Fridays off next season. Given that the show is going to be on Friday nights, it would not make sense for them to air episodes on the U.S. release dates of Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War since they would be in direct competition with their own studio’s movie (and they would lose). Likewise, I hope/expect that they will skip Good Friday. So based on this assumption, the season would last until June 22 if they air all single episodes. But note the “if.”
