No more unexpected rebirths for Agent Coulson. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is coming to an end next year, after seven seasons. Deadline broke the news ahead of the AoS panel at San Diego Comic Con. “When you know that’s what you’re doing, you can take greater risks, of life and death,” said Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb. “Those kinds of decisions suddenly now are real on the table because you’re not playing how do we undo this when we get to the next season. You’re playing that this is going to be the end of the story.” Marvel’s TV plans are somewhat up in the air, what with the end of its Netflix shows and the 20th Century Fox acquisition by Marvel’s parent company, Disney. Disney+ has seven Marvel-affiliated series in development, so it makes sense that the old guard is bowing out. Loeb is excited that the show gets to wrap its story up on its own terms: “I personally believe that every great Marvel story ends to be continued, but the short answer is, yes, it will conclude in a way that is incredibly emotional and in the best ways.”
