Marvel's Agents of SHIELD's Best Season Is Now On Netflix
For those Marvel Cinematic Universe fans that may have dropped Agents of SHIELD from the regular viewing schedules after the third season, it's time to play catch up. The fourth season — and one of the show's most critically acclaimed years — is now on Netflix.
After season three, the crew we came to know and love over the past three seasons splintered as one of the main characters, Daisy "Quake" Johnson (Chloe Bennet) found herself on the lamb from the law.
Without giving too much away, season four sees SHIELD transformed into a legitimate organization once more so the crew no longer had to operate in the shadows.
It was also the first season of the show to feature three distinct "pods," or distinctly separate story arcs within the show. Revealed at last season's San Diego Comic-Con, the season starts off featuring the Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna) version of Ghost Rider before the show switches to focus on Life Model Decoys and a Matrix-like reality known as the Framework.

While ratings were across the board throughout the duration of the seasons, numbers did remain fairly consistent throughout the year, averaging nearly 4.5 million viewers per episode. The season premiere, featuring the debut of Ghost Rider within the MCU, was the season's most-watched episode notching over 6.24 million viewers while 'Self Control,' the 15th episode of the season was the least-viewed episode with 3.88 million viewers.
ABC has since picked up the Saturn Awards-nominated show for a fifth season, which will debut in early 2018 in the 9:00 p.m. EST timeslot.
