Marvel's Agents of SHIELD's series finale airs at 9 p.m. ET tonight (Wednesday, Aug. 12) on ABC.

Tonight we say goodbye and watch Agents of SHIELD series finale online. This marks the end of Season 7, the last chapter for the ABC drama and it's a two-hour episode that's sure to be a doozy, featuring familiar faces from the past and a huge battle to save the future of SHIELD (and the world). 

Agents of SHIELD was the OG Marvel television show. But while it's coming to an end(game), the Marvel TV universe is just starting to expand. Several Avengers spinoff series are set to debut on Disney Plus later this year and in early 2021, including The Falcon and Winter Soldier and WandaVision

Agents of SHIELD season 7 sent the team time-traveling to prevent the Chronicoms from taking over Earth. Helping them along the way was an LMD (life model decoy) of Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), who retained all the memories of the dead human character. 

In the series finale, Nathaniel and Sibyl are getting closer to eliminating S.H.I.E.L.D. from the history books. The agents, led by Daisy (Chloe Bennet), must rely on their strengths to outsmart and outlast the Chronicoms. This is their most important fight, and it will take the help of friends and teammates, past and present, to survive.
