To Rescue the Future, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Must Save Hydra

ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. takes off on its final and most important mission when it launches its seventh and finale season on Wednesday, May 27: prevent the world's destruction in the past, present, and future. Stranded in 1931 New York City and racing against the clock, Coulson (Clark Cregg) and our Agents will be working with and against some very familiar faces, including Agent Carter star Enver Gjokaj's Daniel Sousa in the first non-flashback crossover between the two series. But in the following preview, our heroes are beginning to realize that to save the world they may end up having to do the unthinkable: save Hydra.

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."
