Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Chloe Bennet confirms she's dating controversial YouTube star Logan Paul
Paul found himself embroiled in controversy earlier this year with his Japanese suicide forest video. Since he is so polarizing, one of Bennet's followers wondered why she'd date him. “Cause he’s kind, creative, funny, vibrantly curious about life, weird as f*ck in all the best ways, a big dork, and he’s one of my best friends,” Bennet replied. “It doesn’t make sense to a lot of people, but it doesn’t have too. He’s changed my life for the better and I’ve done the same for him.”

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 finale was designed "so that you can imagine it as you want"

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return in summer 2019
The decision to bring back the Marvel series that ABC renewed Monday for a shortened 13-episode season for summer 2019 was ABC's decision and had nothing to do with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, said ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey. As TV Line notes, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return after the premiere next May of Avengers: Infinity War follow-up Avengers 4, which should have implications for the characters on ABC's Marvel series. “Whatever they (at Marvel Studios) have planned, I cannot say,” said Dungey. As for speculation that Season 6 could be Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s last, Dungey said: “I feel like Season 5 was their creatively strongest yet, so I don’t at the moment have any plans to think of Season 6 as the last season.”

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. renewed for a shortened Season 6
ABC has ordered a 13-episode sixth season but there's no word yet if next season will be the last for the Marvel series. The renewal comes as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is having a tie-in in to the blockbuster Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Avengers: Infinity War. The Season 5 finale airs on Friday, and co-creator Jed Whedon previously said it was planned to work as a series finale in case the show was canceled. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has averaged 2.1 million viewers, but it has an important international viewership.

Marvel Cinematic Universe is often compared to TV, but is it good television?
"The answer is: sometimes," says Alison Herman. "Like any good anthology, the MCU can be nimble and flexible in a way that lends itself to pleasing the widest possible assortment of crowds. Any universe that’s found a way to teleport from Asgard to Wakanda and make both worthwhile places to spend our time is to be commended. The MCU can also be as distended and overburdened as any B-minus Peak TV drama." ALSO: How Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is addressing the events of Avengers: Infinity War.

How will Avengers: Infinity War affect Marvel's TV shows?
The long-neglected Marvel TV shows are still technically connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel's TV Universe was able to flourish into a powerhouse without Marvel's Cinematic Universe
Being disconnected from the Marvel movies has allowed for more diversification among Marvel's TV offerings, including a teen show like Runaways. As James Whitbrook explains, "not having to worry about whatever Captain America or Iron Man are up to, S.H.I.E.L.D. has branched out into telling wild and wonderful stories way beyond its original premise as Marvel’s spy show, and has allowed the Netflix shows to turn The Defenders into its own full-on event series of connected characters. There may have been stumbles along the way, but the TV side of things has become stronger than ever before, and has done so without getting to rest on the laurels of connections to the movies. Maybe one day, when the stars align in the most specific of ways, Marvel’s TV heroes could show up in the movies, and vice versa. But for now, as Marvel’s movieverse prepares to celebrate 10 years of being one big happy family, its distant cousins on TV have spent half that time being quite all right on their own—even if that may not have been what was intended from the get-go."

How did Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. manage to keep its 100th episode surprise secret?
"Everybody on our cast and crew in general, partly because we’re terrified of Marvel, does a great job of keeping things quiet," says executive producer Jeff Bell. "If your character is going to die, if some big twist is going to happen, they do a very good job protecting it."
