Jed Whedon, executive producer of Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D., spoke with Collider recently about the show’s upcoming sixth season. He revealed that the show will not be following the recent MCU films.

He says this is largely due to the potential spoilers that would’ve been created depending on the time the show ended up airing.

“Part of it had to do with the question of when we’d air, truthfully. We had talked about summer, but there was always a chance that we’d get moved up to the beginning of the year. With the amount of characters and money and machine in place with Endgame, we had to dodge it completely.” Whedon explained.

“So, imagine if we had incorporated it, and then, at the last minute, the network was like, ‘You know what? We’d love to have this on in January.’ And then, all of a sudden, we’d spoil something. So, we made the decision to just be pre-snap, tell our story, and carry it forward.”
