ABC has renewed Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for a fourth season. The veteran series, which will be returning from its 3-month mid-season break next Tuesday, has seen its ratings slightly dip as of late but still draws a loyal following. Set in the same universe as popular Marvel franchises, the action drama enjoys being able to tie in with major motion picture releases from the studio.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. joins five other ABC dramas that were picked up today for the 2016-2017 season. Once Upon a Time, Quantico, Scandal, Grey's Anatomy, and How to Get Away with Murder will all be returning. Dramas still waiting on news include Castle, American Crime, Nashville, and Agent Carter.
