You Can Watch the First 17 Minutes of Agents of SHIELD Season Five Right Now!
ABC and Marvel have unveiled the first seventeen minutes from the first episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s fifth season. As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, or seen in the Season Five trailer, this season will find the agents in SPAAAACE and include a time jump from the end of Season Four. “Coulson and the team find themselves stranded on a mysterious ship in outer space,” reads the synopsis, “and that’s just the beginning of the nightmare to come.”
Speaking to IGN about going cosmic in the upcoming season, after both Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok did the same, showrunner Jed Whedon didn’t reveal much about how the show might intersect with the films, but he did hint. “The sandbox we’re playing in keeps getting bigger,” he said, “and we want to explore all sides of it, and tell as many different stories as we can. Fortunately deep space is very different … We have relatively free reign; we just can’t go anywhere that [the movies]’re going. They know their stories so much further out than we do, which is good for us to tee up things that we know are coming to them or avoid things that they want to be special on the big screen.”
Season Five will also include the series’ 100th episode, which is typically a landmark or special-event episode in a series. Speaking to ComicBook.com during New York Comic Con, executive vice president of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb said, “Look, this is not going to come as a surprise to anyone that’s ever seen a 100th episode, that there will be a significant event. That’s all I can tell you. They gotta get home from space!”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns with a two-hour season premiere on Friday, December 1.
