ABC announced today that Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been picked up for a sixth season. The good news comes as the network is making last-minute decisions on its lineup for the 2018-2019 television season.

The veteran drama has had a solid run on the network overall, reaching the impressive 100-episode milestone earlier this year. The series has been on the bubble come renewal time in recent years, though, as its current ratings are far from what they used to be. However, the series benefits from its international appeal and its ability to tie-in with movie franchises within the Marvel universe.

Look for Season 6 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to premiere in the summer of 2019.
