Marvel’s AGENTS OF S.H.E.I.L.D. is Marvel television’s longest running television program and it returns this May to ABC! This past weekend at WonderCon, the show launched a first-look sneak peek and audience members were treated to a screening of the complete first episode.
Fan favorites in attendance included Clark Gregg, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley, and Jeff Ward, executive producers in tow included Maurissa Tancharoen, Jed Whedon, and Jeff Bell. Moderator Jeph Loeb shared news that Ming-Na Wen and Chloe Bennet were not able to attend as they were literally on set shooting scenes for the upcoming season.
The first episode screened during the panel surely left lots of questions as the episode establishes that while the show’s characters are still coming to grips with the knowledge that bending the laws of space and time may have saved the planet, but it couldn’t save Fitz or Coulson.
The trademark boisterous candor of this show was in full force during the panel. Plus, Clark Gregg got a few-days-early greeting from the entire arena wishing him a happy birthday. We learn that the show picks up a year from where we were last season so it seems the show will completely skip over the entirety of the contents of INFINITY WAR and the upcoming ENDGAME.

Jeff Loeb seemed oddly on edge during the panel and often times exceedingly negative which seemed a little off from other appearances we’ve seen. At any rate, it didn’t put much of a damper on all those assembled.
