‘MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.’ RETURNS WITH AN EXPLOSIVE TWO-HOUR SEASON PREMIERE ON FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, ON ABC
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” returns for its fifth exciting season with a special two-hour premiere, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network.
The series will air in its regular time period beginning on Friday, December 8, from 9:01-10:01 p.m. EST.
“We’re so proud of the way that ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ has grown creatively every season. The series is a top performer for us especially in delayed viewing where we see almost triple-digit increases,” said Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment. “Season five is their strongest season yet, and we can’t wait for the fans to see it. We feel that the move to Friday, creating a ‘genre night’ on ABC, appeals to the show’s loyal fan base.”
Last season, Agent Coulson and the team saved the world with the help of Ghost Rider. In a rare moment of celebration, the team’s night off was interrupted by a mysterious man and an elite squad. The next thing we saw was Coulson onboard a ship … in deep space!
Together, they will have to discover where they are and how to get home while the clock ticks out on humanity. These secrets and mysteries are only the beginning for what is sure to be the most surprising and exhilarating S.H.I.E.L.D. adventure yet!
