We originally thought that Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD would be returning for its fifth season in January of 2018, but it turns out that’s not the case.

The chief of ABC, Channing Dungey, was speaking at the Television Critics Association summer press tour (via TVLine) and had this to say about the return of Coulson and co:

“It’s going to come on right after Inhumans, as soon as the eight episodes of Inhumans is done, then SHIELD will begin.”

 Marvel’s Inhumans, if you didn’t already know, premieres on ABC on September 29, so eight weeks after that is *checks calendar* November 24. If Inhumans doesn’t miss a week because of sport or other ‘special programming’, SHIELD will return well over a month earlier than expected.

We don’t know too much about the plot of the upcoming fifth season as of yet (you could say it’s… top secret) but we do know that Channel Zero and Law & Order: Criminal Intent star Jeff Ward will be joining the show.

Emily VanCamp recently revealed that her MCU character Sharon Carter – the one who snogged Captain America the scene after her Aunt Peggy’s funeral – could have joined the show if it wasn’t for her role on Revenge.
 When asked if the door is open for her to join now, her lips remained sealed WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT A SECRET AGENT WOULD DO.
