Although Marvel’s Netflix shows Iron Fist and Luke Cage have both been given the axe, new data suggests that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t going anywhere. Okay, so it’s not like we were all that worried, but now we’ve got the numbers to augment our confidence. 

Data from Parrot Analytics first presented by ScreenRant then given to SYFY WIRE reveals that the series continues to be Marvel Television’s go-to show, being watched more than Daredevil, Cloak & Dagger, or The Punisher. In fact, when comparing the average demand for Marvel series in the U.S. over a one-year period (Nov. 9, 2017 to Nov. 9, 2018), Agents tops the list by a wide margin.

During this one-year period, Agents received an average of 22.3 million views. By comparison, the Marvel series with the second most engaged viewership is Daredevil, with an average of 15.3 million views.  

And when compared with other scripted shows with similar levels of demand in the U.S. over a 90-day period, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. outperforms such shows as Supergirl, Arrow, and Fear the Walking Dead.

Guess it’s a good thing ABC renewed the series for a sixth season!  

The data included in this article are based on Demand Expressions, the globally standardized TV demand measurement unit from Parrot Analytics.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to ABC this summer for a truncated 13-episode sixth season. In the meantime, we can see Clark Gregg play a younger version of Agent Coulson in Captain Marvel in theatres March 8.
