It seems like just yesterday that Clark Gregg was showing off some of the first new images and video from the set of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 7. The show is about to launch its final episodes, and now we know when that is happening. Today, ABC has officially announced that the Marvel series will begin its end this summer.
Yes, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 7 will premier on May 27. The announcement came earlier this afternoon when ABC unveiled its summer programming schedule. Clark Gregg and Ming-Na Wen will both return for one last ride into the sunset, for what has been the longest running MCU series to date, though the show hasn't really intersected with the movies during the last couple of seasons.
Prepare for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. the Final Season when it launches May 27 at 10pm. ABC announced that these would be the last episodes back in the summer of 2019, during the big San Diego Comic-Con panel for the show in Hall H. ABC is now the first of the big four networks to announced their upcoming summer schedule.
Amid the current ongoing crisis, ABC has decided to move up its traditional line-up of game shows, launching in May instead of July. This comes after the network had cut some of its biggest scripted shows off short, including Grey's Anatomy.
The ABC summer lineup is packed with game shows this time around, and will be headlined by Holey Moley Season 2, which brings back Stephen Curry's mini-golf series. That will kick off May 21. To Tell The Truth Season 5 will have its premiere immediately after Holey Moley, with Black-Ish star Anthony Anderson serving as the host.
Celebrity Family Feud, Press Your Luck With Elizabeth Banks, and Match Game are coming back Sunday night, on May 31, at 8 pm, 9pm and 10pm respectively. On May 19, the new ABC news series The Genetic Detective will make its debut. It follows investigative genetic genealogist CeCe Moore, who uses unique research skills for a new form of crime solving.
