Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is in the midst of its sixth season and the cast is absolutely ecstatic about the new storyline. When the show ended its last season, everyone lived in a state of uncertainty. Cancellation seemed like a distinct possibility. Ultimately though, the show was surprisingly renewed. And from the crucible came a new, leaner, meaner Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
This season of the ABC show focuses on the lives of the Agents as they search for a cryogenically frozen version of Agent Leo Fitz and mourn the final loss of Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg). Everyone is thrown for a loop, however, when in the midst of their grief, a new team of rogues shows up led by a man named Sarge– who looks exactly like Coulson. Watch as Co-Showrunners Jeff Bell, Jeph Loeb, and Jed Whedon, alongside actors Ming Na-Wen (Melinda May), Natalia Cordova-Buckley (‘Yo-Yo’ Rodriguez), Henry Simmons (‘Mack’ Mackenzie), Winston James Franco (Jaco), Brooke Williams (Snowflake), Maximilian Osinkski (Davis), and Briana Venskus (Piper) reveal what it’s like to have their characters go up against someone who looks eerily like their old friend.
Then, join the cast for a more extensive journey into season six of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., where the actors discuss where their characters are headed and what it means for the show and the Marvel Cinematic Universe at large (or in some cases, what it doesn’t have to do with anything such as Avengers: Endgame).
