'Agents of SHIELD' season 7: New trailer, release date, plot, cast, and everything you need to know about the hit Marvel show's final season
After six long seasons of fighting a wide range of enemies including cyborgs, supervillains, aliens and the supernatural, Marvel's very first TV series is finally preparing to air its last season
‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ 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 S.H.I.E.L.D.’ 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:
The release date for ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 7 hasn’t been made public yet but it is expected to begin airing in the Spring of 2020.
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. S.H.I.E.L.D. finds an ally in their fight against Izel in Sarge, a mysterious alien mercenary who just so happens to look exactly like Coulson.
Right now we don’t know how the final season will go as Season 6 is yet to wrap up. Seeing as it is the final season, we can expect Season 7 to bring all the show’s storylines full circle. Hopefully, we’ll see Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) become Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., a role that she has arguably been preparing for ever since the show’s first season.
Fans can also hope to get some answers about the true nature of the mysterious Monoliths that have consistently popped up over multiple seasons of the series and maybe even see the beloved Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons (FitzSimmons) finally get a chance to settle down and have a happy ending.
Ming-Na Wen has played Agent Melinda May on the show since its first season. She is also known for voicing the titular character in Disney’s hit animated movie ‘Mulan’. She notably starred in the movies ‘The Joy Luck Club’ (1993), ‘Street Fighter’ (1994), and ‘Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within’ (2001).
Other main cast members of the show include 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.
While Clark Gregg’s Agent Phil Coulson has been an integral part of the show since the very beginning, we don’t yet know if he will be returning for the final season. The full cast of Season 7 is yet to be announced so watch this space for updates.
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 S.H.I.E.L.D.’
The teaser sees an updated title cared followed by a scene set in 1931. Three cops are seen waiting in an empty building and are surprised to see three aliens appear. A stand-off sees two of the cops bite the dust and the aliens reveal that they want the identity of the third surviving police officer. The aliens are most definitely chromicon hunters. Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg), Daisy (Chloe Bennett) make an appearance in a tense scene as well. Time travel as a storyline is established in the clip. The trailer also says the series will hit screens in summer 2020.
