The Official Report
ABC’s statement read:
From ABC Studios and Marvel Television, ” MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.” returns for its seventh and final season on WEDNESDAY, MAY 27 (10:00 – 11:00 p.m. EDT). 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. “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, 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 & Maurissa Tancharoen, who also serve as executive producers along with Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb.
And, of course, there’s a surprise: Agent Carter’s Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) will return, too!

Enver Gjokaj never expected to play Agent Carter’s Daniel Sousa again after the Marvel series’ two-season run ended in 2016. Thankfully, fate had other plans. EW can exclusively reveal that Gjokaj will guest-star as Sousa in the seventh and final season of ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and you can get an exclusive first look above.
“It wasn’t anywhere near my brain,” says Gjokaj, who was surprised when the opportunity to reprise the role was presented to him. “I would’ve been thrilled at any moment for it to come back, but I think as an actor you don’t have time. You just have to move on to the next project.”
Although Agent Carter aired on the same network as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the shows never had a substantial crossover (beyond a flashback in S.H.I.E.L.D.’s season 2 premiere) because they’re set in different time periods: Carter in the 1940s and S.H.I.E.L.D. in the present. But now the latter show has added time-travel to its storytelling arsenal.
And yeah, Chloe Bennet brings the “behind the scenes” photos:
