Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD will end with its upcoming seventh season, Deadline reports.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe-adjacent show will host its annual Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con this year, where cast members Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, and Chloe Bennet will make appearances.

The show premiered on ABC in 2013, a year after the first Avengers movie. Though Agent Phil Coulson apparently died in The Avengers, Agents of SHIELD follows the newly resurrected agent as he leads a team. Coulson does eventually (spoilers!) kick the bucket for real in season five, and Gregg assumed a new role as an alien who resembles Phil Coulson.

Of the show’s ending, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb said, “When you know that’s what you’re doing, you can take greater risks, of life and death. Those kinds of decisions suddenly now are real on the table because you’re not playing how do we undo this when we get to the next season. You’re playing that this is going to be the end of the story.”

Agents of SHIELD is currently in its sixth season. Season 7 is set to debut sometime later this year.
