                            'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about Marvel show's final season

‘Agents of SHIELD’ has changed a lot since its inception as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first TV series. Over the course of six seasons, the show’s heroes have faced cyborgs, supervillains, aliens, and the supernatural. But all good things must come to an end and ‘Agents of SHIELD’ will be wrapping up its time on the air with its upcoming seventh season.

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming final season:

Release Date

The release date for ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Season 7 will premiere on ABC on May 27.

What happened in Season 6?

Picking up right after Agent Phil Coulson’s off-screen death at the end of Season 5, the sixth season dealt with an invasion of Earth by a parasitic race called the Shrikes. These creatures are led by an entity known as Izel, who aims to open a portal to her home dimension and allow her race to conquer the entire galaxy. SHIELD finds an ally in their fight against Izel in Sarge, a mysterious alien mercenary who just so happens to look exactly like Coulson.

Plot

Season 7 will see the team stuck in the 1930s trying to stop an invasion by the time-traveling alien robots known as the Chronicoms. Their adventures will see them deal with the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR), the precursor to S.H.I.E.L.D., and their old enemies Hydra.

Cast

Clark Gregg (IMDb)

Clark Gregg’s Agent Phil Coulson has been an integral part of the show since the very beginning. In Season 7, the actor will be returning as a Chronicom-enhanced Life Model Decoy of Coulson, complete with all his memories and knowledge of the entirety of SHIELD history.

Other main cast members of the show include Ming Na-Wen as Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson/Quake, Iain De Caestecker as Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Simmons, Henry Simmons as Mack, Natalia Cordova-Buckley as Yo-Yo, and Jeff Ward as Deke Shaw.

Guest stars this season include Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Patrick Warburton as Rick Stoner, Enver Gjokaj as Daniel Sousa, and Joel Stoffer as Enoch Coltrane.

Joss Whedon kicked off the show alongside Maurissa Tancharoen and his brother Jed Whedon right after directing the 2012 movie ‘Avengers’. He is an acclaimed director, producer, and writer responsible for many movies and TV shows including ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’, ‘Angel’, ‘Firefly’, and ‘Dollhouse’ (2009–10). Whedon serves as an executive producer on ‘Agents of SHIELD’.

Trailer

The teaser for the season features an updated title card followed by a scene set in 1931. Three cops are seen waiting in an empty building and are surprised to see three Chronicom hunters appear. A stand-off sees two of the cops bite the dust and the aliens reveal that they want to steal the face and identity of the third surviving police officer.



 


 

The full-length trailer for the season repeats footage from the trailer and adds an exchange between Coulson and Daisy where they realize that in order to save SHIELD, they will also have to save Hydra. Since this is set decades before ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’, we’re assuming that’s because at this point in time, Hydra and SHIELD are one and the same but it’s still going to be a hard pill for the team to swallow.
