Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is definitely one of the most unexpected beloved series. The series followed Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) from the MCU as he leads a team of highly skilled agents, who are experts in fighting aliens and Inhumans. Agents of SHIELD also stars Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Ming-Na Wen, Elizabeth Henstridge, Brett Dalton, Henry Simmons, and Natalia Cordova-Buckley. The ABC series premiered in 2013 but it gained a lot of fans after the series separated itself from the mainstream Marvel Universe and started adapting obscure stories, told through its fan-favorite characters. Agents of SHIELD ended with its seventh and final season in 2020 by wrapping all of the story and character arcs beautifully. So, if you miss Agents of SHIELD here are some more shows you could watch to fill up your time.
