After rumors surfaced that Disney “compelled” ABC to give Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. this, their 5th season, we were all pretty sure it would be the original MCU tie-in show’s last. All year long, people involved in the show kept saying they wrote this season as if it would be the last. Expectations were minimum. Thank goodness the fans showed up.
Announced just a minutes ago, AoS will be returning for a 6th season! Next year will bring back Coulson (we hope) and his crew for another 13 episodes. Thirteen is a far cry from the massive 24 episode run they had just a season ago, but at this point, we’ll take what we can get. Will we get more tie-ins to the half-genocided larger MCU? Will events of Avengers 4 play a role? Contact us and share your thoughts! Also, don’t forget to tune into the podcast we’ll be releasing later today to discuss it – we may bring up your question or opinion!
Allow me to say that the anticipation for this show is steadily climbing higher and higher. Joining Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce and Nafessa Williams and China Anne McLain as his daughters, Anissa and Jennifer, on The CW’s Black Lightning will be Christine Adams as the former superhero’s ex-wife, Lynn Stewart
Adams will probably be best known for playing Agent Weaver during the first two seasons of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but she’s also appeared in the likes of Batman Begins, Tron: Legacy, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Deadline describes this small-screen take on Lynn Stewart as a woman “who exudes confidence and intelligence. Although she’s got a mischievous side, she’s not one to be trifled with when it comes to family”.
Black Lightning will be written and produced by Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil, alongside Greg Berlanti. There’s no set premiere date just yet.

Well a big thank you indeed goes out to Entertainment Weekly for this one. We were wondering what would the Robbie Reyes/Ghost Rider character (played by Gabriel Luna) on the 3rd season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D would look like and now we have it.
I’d have to say its pretty spot on to its comic book counter part even though we only see him in human form. More than likely ABC and Marvel are saving the FLAMING reveal for the actual tv show and do not want to spoil it.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, Sept. 20 on ABC, in the new time slot of 10 p.m./9 p.m. Central.
