With the cancellation of Agent Carter and the failure of The Inhumans, the only Marvel series currently airing on the ABC network is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. And while we can expect some new Marvel projects to pop up on the Disney streaming service, we didn’t know if anything new would debut on ABC.
Fortunately, the network’s president, Channing Dungey, answered this question while speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that there are a few Marvel projects in the works.
“We’re cooking up a couple things for broadcast,” Dungey explained. “There’s one that I want to talk about and [Marvel TV head] Jeph Loeb won’t let me.”
While no specific project was named, an untitled series from John Ridley and a Damage Control show have all been reported to be in development at one point or another, so this mysterious program could be either of them or something else entirely. Though, they are likely hoping for better results than the defunct Marvel’s Most Wanted.
However, new properties weren’t the only thing discussed as the president also touched upon the future of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: “It’s my hope that by moving it to summer, where our live-same-day ratings are less important and it might be able to continue for longer.”
This comment from Dungey matches up with her previous statement, and it will likely ease the minds of fans who are worried Season 6 may be the series’ last.
Now, what do you folks think of everything that was said? To share your thoughts leave a comment below.
