Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will premiere its sixth season earlier than expected. Initially rumored to debut in July, Season 6 will now begin airing in May, coming shortly after the release of Avengers: Endgame. The news was revealed earlier today at the end of a Valentine’s Day video, shared on the show’s Twitter page, that featured various romantic moments from Season 5 involving the main cast.

Season 6 will find our Agents operating in a post-Phil Coulson environment, with half of the team under the supervision of Director Mack helping deal with threats on Earth and the other half in deep space searching for cryo Fitz. However, our team will encounter a big surprise with the arrival of ‘Not Phil Coulson,’ and the mystery of why this foe looks like Coulson will be one of the big storylines of the season.
Thanks to an insider scoop from Michael Ausiello of TV Line, we now know that Season 6 will feature a time-jump and pick up “about a year after the team dropped a terminal Coulson off in Tahiti” to live out his final days at the end of Season 5.
Ausiello also stated that the sixth season could be subtitled “The Search for Fitz,” driven by Jemma’s mission to find her cryo-frozen man who has become lost in space, with Clark Gregg adding “Fitz is one elusive, sexy bastard!” Finally, Elizabeth Henstridge teased that Season 6 will be unlike anything we have seen before from the series, saying “this season is a departure from other stuff we’ve done.“
Be sure to tune into new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this May when Season 6 premieres.
