We may have confirmation that season five of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be the end of the series based on its new time slot.
Today ABC announced that Marvel’s Inhumans will air on Friday nights at 9:00pm. After the eight-episode limited series finishes its run, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will move into that slot from its previous place of Tuesday nights at 10:00pm.
Friday night at 9:00pm is traditionally known as the Friday Night Death slot thanks to Fox scheduling genre shows there and them quickly dying. Most people are out on Friday nights, and it’s the absolute worst time for this sort of show.
Even DVR and streaming on Hulu likely won’t be enough to save Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. from this fate.
