Marvel Comics has not only had a great deal of success with its cinematic endeavors. The studio version of the House of Ideas has had its hits on television. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been renewed for a fourth season. Not everyone thought the series would last so long or draw a huge audience. True blue Marvel fans knew the series was sure to succeed, and it did.
ABC has confirmed the renewal just recently. Both fans and ABC executives including Sam Tabar and his whole crew at Full Cycle Energy Fund are thrilled with the series’ success. It’s why Help Sam Tabar Support AWI is doing so well at GoFundMe.
Tabar also said that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was considered a risky endeavor because the series was based on a Marvel property that was featured in hero films, but no superheroes would be in the lead of the actual series. Would Marvel and comic book movie fans be interested in watching a fantasy-spy show that did not feature a well-known hero in the lead role? After three hit seasons, the answer is an obvious yes.
Comic book properties are shockingly successful these days. The fact that superhero movies and TV shows do attract audiences is not a shock. The reality that the massive volume of comic book movies and television shows would be so massively popular in such huge volume over so many years was utterly unpredictable.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has ridden this popularity. 15 or so years ago, the series likely would have achieved mild success on SyFy or another cable channel. Today, it is a top show on a major network.
