Following the announcement that ABC has canceled Agent Carter, an Agents of SHIELD spinoff and pushing back Agents of SHIELD to a new time slot, questions arose over the future of Marvel's collaboration with the network.
ABC's new president of entertainment, Channing Dungey, said that they still had a couple of shows in the works that they were hopefully going to be able to talk about soon, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Despite the network cancelling some of the series that weren't performing well, it didn't mean that the network was looking to end its partnership with Marvel.
In addressing the scheduling shift Agents of SHIELD will make this fall — from 9 p.m. ET to 10 p.m. ET on Tuesdays —Dungey said the change had nothing to do with the show itself. Instead, she added, it had to do with the solid two-hour block of comedies the network was looking to bring to audiences. Instead of following two comedies with the Marvel drama and then another hour of sitcoms, the network will just air two-hours of comedies straight. Agents of SHIELD would be used to end the night.
ABC announced that it would be canceling Agent Carter after two seasons last week following disappointing ratings. The network also made the move to axe an Agents of SHIELD spinoff, called Marvel's Most Wanted, before it even made it to air.
Agents of SHIELD's fourth season will premiere on the network this fall.
