Marvel’s longest-running TV series, Agents of SHIELD, is finally coming to an end. The seventh and final season is right around the corner, and it looks like they are trying to recapture the time-travel fun we saw with Avengers: Endgame, because Agent Coulson and his squad are stuck in the 1930s.
Season 7 finds Agent of SHIELD set in 1931, when they must stop the threat of synthetic face-stealing foes the Chronicoms. Oh, and return to the present, of course. As we’ve previously learned, the setting allows for a crossover with another canceled Marvel series, Agent Carter, although it’s still unconfirmed if Hayley Atwell will reprise her role.
Some might call Agents of SHIELD a disappointment, and I can see their point. The show premiered following the heights of 2012’s The Avengers, and it got off to such a hot start. A combination of questionable storytelling (that Inhumans stuff drove me away) and indifference from Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios derailed all of that. But it’s hard to ignore the show’s lengthy run and dedicated fanbase, who always packed halls at Comic-Con to see the cast. The show has left its mark, whatever one thinks of it.
Agents of SHIELD will kick off its final 13-episode season beginning May 27th on ABC.
SYNOPSIS: In the seventh and final season of the Marvel hit, Coulson and the Agents of SHIELD 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.
