With the demise of so many Netflix Marvel shows, another television regular has just announced that it is coming to an end as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, the popular ABC program, will be ending after its seventh season.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 will air its next episode, "Leap", on Friday, July 19.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Fridays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.

Jeph Loeb said that the creative team did indeed treat Season 5's development process as if it was going to be the final year. The showrunners seemed to anticipate cancellation after the fifth season, writing that season as a conclusion, but Disney and ABC swooped in and renewed it despite the low ratings. And perhaps surprisingly, it was agreed to with the endgame (no pun intended) being a caveat. "We want to end on a very high note and complete the incredible saga after seven fantastic seasons and 136 hours of quality television". Actually, the last episode of that season is called "The End". "And this really nice guy I'd just met in the green room [Joss Whedon] called me a little later and said, 'We think you might not be so dead.' And he passed the show on to his brilliant brother [Jed Whedon] and sister-in-law, Maurissa Tancharoen-Whedon, and they have taken us on this incredible ride that's changed our lives".

'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.

That may not be the end of the end for all these characters, though According to Whedon, the dynamic duo that is FitzSimmons could have more stories ahead of them.

Ending with a peak at the end of the current Season 6 and termed a "celebration" by Marvel TV boss and executive producer Jeph Loeb, the one-hour panel touched on every season of S.H.I.E.L.D. with stars and EPs reminiscing and offering thanks to the fans and more.
