With folks practicing “social distancing” and “self-quarantine,” many are now looking for TV shows and movies to distract themselves. While some people and publications have streaming/binging recommendations — like James Gunn’s 10 favorite underrated films to our own list of feel-good movies — companies like Disney are releasing movies to digital early – like Frozen 2 and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
With that in mind, a Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD fan on Twitter suggested the Disney drop Season 7, the show’s final 13-episode run, which is due out this summer, early for those staying indoors to binge. Here’s the original tweet…
I’m just saying @abc, since we are all in self-quarantine, maybe you could drop us the final season of Agents of Shield a little early. Can’t hurt to ask! @clarkgregg @chloebennet @MingNa @YOSOYCORDOVA pic.twitter.com/LoZUHQrE9Y

The tweet’s tagging of SHIELD stars Clark Gregg, Chloe Bennet and Ming-Na Wen resulted in both Gregg and Bennet retweeting the message to their hordes of followers, showing support for idea of a Season 7 early release.
All final episodes are finished as the series wrapped production of its seventh season back in July of 2019, just a few days after it was announced that Season 7 would be the show’s last.
Meanwhile, Disney has announced that it will temporarily shut down production on all of its upcoming Disney+ Marvel shows and films amid COVID-19 concerns. Disney has also shut down both Disney World and Disneyland in an attempt to prevent further spread of COVID-19. This is only the fourth time in history that Disneyland has been closed.
