Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. may be coming to an end, but the ABC Marvel series has 13 episodes to enjoy first. Season 7 of the show follows on from the events which saw the team flee to 1930s New York, and a number of cast members from the present will return. The trailer for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 7 also reveals the show's final plot as the team has to save HYDRA.

When will Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 7 air?

The final season of the Marvel show will premiere on Wednesday, May 27 at 10 p.m. ET / 9 p.m. CT on ABC. The 13 episodes will then air weekly on the network until August 12, when the season (and series) final will air.

After episodes air, they will be available to watch online on the ABC website and app. The first six seasons meanwhile, are streaming on Netflix. Season 7, however, is more likely to come to Disney+ after it airs on ABC, though the streamer has not revealed its release date for the show's final season.
