After many rumors and a previous tease from Clark Gregg, Agents of SHIELD is offically coming to an end after seven seasons. The series had a dynamite run, becoming the first and now longest-running series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the news is certainly a bummer for fans, we also have to appreciate that after years of fighting tooth and nail for renewals, it’s pretty awesome that the show gets to end on its own terms. However, we don't have to say goodbye just yet! We’re only on season six, so there's a ways to go before we’re forced to say goodbye to our favorite ragtag group of agents.
Next summer’s Season 7 will be the last for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Thanks to our fans for allowing us to be the longest-running Marvel TV series to-date. ❤ https://t.co/1PdHDDKXll— Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (@AgentsofSHIELD) July 18, 2019
Since Deadline broke the news earlier today, many people have paid tribute to the series on social media. Fans, cast members, writers, and producers alike have all shared their love for Coulson and the gang.
Here’s a sample of tweets from Agents of SHIELD’s “small but active fanbase…”
We've been lucky enough to have the best job in the world for the last few years. We're so glad this show gets to finish on its own terms. Not all shows are that fortunate. And guys, Season Seven is a fucking blast. Cheers from me and @sharlaoliver. #AgentsofSHIELD https://t.co/cp6J8gmegZ— James C. Oliver (@JamesOliverInLA) July 18, 2019

The end of an era. 💔💔😭 AoS is the best of Marvel TV in every respect, imo. I will miss it. I hope it's not the last we see of our agents, tho. They are beautifully complex, intelligent, powerful characters and it would be a shame not to use them elsewhere. #AgentsofSHIELD pic.twitter.com/2Btu14OKSn— Jennifer | #CoulsonLives (@JenPhillips721) July 18, 2019

Season 7 will be the last season of #AgentsofSHIELD. We saw Chloe as Skye, Daisy and Quake. In seven years, we saw her grow and become a strong and powerful character. Hopefully this won't be the end of Daisy's story. pic.twitter.com/z8dKpxffiK— SDCC l best of chloe (@bestofbennet) July 18, 2019
Seven is the PERFECT number of seasons. Many wonderful shows ended at seven and no series has ever had a groundbreaking season eight. #AgentsofSHIELD had an incredible run, and I'm stoked to see what the final season has in store. I'll miss it, but it ain't over yet! pic.twitter.com/VdO416ZNDH— Jamie Jirak (@JamieCinematics) July 18, 2019
