Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Season 3

shield-cast

Where Did We Leave Off: A group of Inhumans, led by Skye’s mother Jiaiying, tried to start a war between themselves and S.H.I.E.L.D. by attacking an aircraft carrier housing a deadly alien artifact. Coulson and his team are able to stop it, but not without the loss of a couple of key agents and Coulson’s own hand. In the aftermath, Coulson decides to recruit a special team of super-powers, while the aforementioned deadly artifact eats Simmons while she’s studying it. The traitorous agent Ward, meanwhile, takes over the remains of HYDRA and swears revenge on S.H.I.E.L.D.

What’s New: Coulson will fulfill his promise to put together a new team, based loosely on the comic book Secret Warriors, that will be lead by Skye, who now goes by her birth name Daisy Johnson. Mac and Lincoln will be a part of this new team, too, and Henry Simmons and Luke Mitchell have both been promoted to series regular, as well. The storyline this year will involve Fitz’s frantic search for Simmons and the emergence of new superhumans thanks to the release of the Terrigen crystals into the environment, and S.H.I.E.L.D. won’t be the only one interested in acquiring them.

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

What to Expect: Like last year, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be allowed to float free of having to do any cross-promotion with Marvel movies, a fact that managed to help the show grow considerably in the first half of the season. But when the clock starts ticking down to Captain America: Civil War, will that change? Also, who might be able to crossover from the movies now that Lady Sif (Jaime Alexander) has her own show? And what will become of Agents Morse and Hunter now that ABC is planning to spin them off once more? And is it just us, or is the cast maybe getting a little bloated?

Premiere Date: Tuesday September 29, 2015 at 9 pm on ABC.
