's renewal, Marvel.com
's Marc Strom was quick to point out that there’s a lot more to come in Season 3: “Before we can embark on Season 4, though, Director Coulson and his tireless team still have to face the menace of Hive and the world's growing concerns about the number of Inhumans popping up across the globe. There's plenty to come as we begin the second half of Season 3, and you won't want to miss a minute of it!”

No word yet on the status of Agent Carter
, which just finished its second season, but Hayley Atwell was recently cast in the ABC drama Conviction
(in addition to Agent Carter
’s low ratings)- which could spell doom for the series. However, ScreenCrush
commented that renewals typically occur in May, meaning there’s still a chance for the show - and other series left off the list like Castle
, American Crime
, Last Man Standing
, Dr. Ken
, and The Muppets -
to come back.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
returns this coming Tuesday at 9 pm ET.
