With all of the sudden attention that ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been getting lately, it feels like the show's returning this weekend instead of next month. Set to blast their way back from the past (at least they're hoping they do) starting Wednesday, May 27 (though an early release on Disney+ wouldn't be the craziest thing in the world), the seventh and final season finds Coulson (Clark Cregg) and the team stranded in 1930's New York City. Racing against the clock to prevent the destruction of the past, present, and future, our heroes will confront friends and foes (including some viewers may recognize as the fate of the world hands in the balance one last time. Now' we're getting a look at the first official key art for the series' final run, followed by a look back at the most recently-released teaser as well as the D23 preview video.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. also stars Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leopold Fitz, Henry Simmons as Director Alphonso "Mack" MacKenzie, Natalia Cordova-Buckley as Elena "Yo-Yo" Rodriguez and Jeff Ward as Deke Shaw. Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was co-created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen, who also serve as executive producers along with Jeffrey Bell and Loeb.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 7: Coulson and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are thrust backward in time and stranded in 1931 New York City. With the all-new Zephyr set to time-jump at any moment, the team must hurry to find out exactly what happened. If they fail, it would mean disaster for the past, present, and future of the world.
Last summer, executive producer and then-head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb (stepping down last fall after a shake-up resulted in Kevin Feige overseeing all Marvel properties under the banner Marvel Studios) discussed the series' end as well as what fans can expect last summer. Knowing that wouldn't be another season to follow allowed the final season to operate without a safety net, which Loeb believes only benefits the series: "When you know that's what you're doing, you can take greater risks, of life and death. Those kinds of decisions suddenly now are real on the table because you're not playing how do we undo this when we get to the next season. You're playing that this is going to be the end of the story."
