MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D ended season 3 in a jaw-dropping finale that left the team one agent short and the universe with one less super villain. In the final showdown, Lincoln sacrificed himself in order to save the world and defeat HIVE once and for all. We talked to the cast and producers of the ABC hit show a couple of weeks ago at San Diego Comic Con and they teased a new villain, their new time slot at 10pm and how Daisy is coping after Lincoln’s tragic death.
Yesterday, however, the network revealed more details about what we can expect in season 4. Check it out:
In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimatized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director (Jason O’Mara) to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack (Henry Simmons), and together they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of Enhanced people, aka Inhumans. They have been trying to track down and capture Daisy (Chloe Bennet), aka Quake, who has gone rogue in an attempt to atone for sins from the past. But with the world believing that Daisy is a dangerous outlaw who has taken down banks and bridges, the new Director has no qualms about taking her down for good. Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant.
Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna) will roar into the lives of Agent Coulson and the team as a junkyard mechanic who can turn on a dime into the terrifying Ghost Rider. Will Robbie be a friend or foe to S.H.I.E.L.D. – as well as the world, itself? Meanwhile, Fitz discovers that socially awkward genius and friend Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) has started putting the finishing touches on a new, secret invention.
MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D returns with an all new season on September 20 at 10/9c on ABC.
