Now that the season 3 finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has aired in the US, it has been confirmed that when the show returns in September 2016, the show will be moving to a later time slot on ABC.
When it first aired the show was in the 8pm SLOT. Later seasons moved back an hour to the 9pm slot. Now it will fill the Tuesday 10pm slot.
The ABC President was quoted that it allowed them ” to go a little bit edgier, go a little darker and take some risks” but also said the shift was ” less about moving SHIELD to 10 and more feeling we had a big bench of comedies. The schedule kind of fell into place in that way.”
Do we see AoS moving to tone more similar to the Netflix series or is this a case, as the president said, just a timing thing?
