'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Moving To Summer On ABC | Deadline

The 13-episode Season 6 Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D will premiere in summer 2019. ABC President of Entertainment said "We don't plan it as a final season. The show has a loyal passionate base. It does incredibly well in delayed viewing. By putting it on the summer we feel we can super-serve the show’s audience and possibly have it on the air longer"
