Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) & Co. find themselves held captive very far from home at the start of Season 5 of ABC’s Marvel series “Agents of SHIELD.”
And in an extended 17-minute preview of the season premiere, we get a lot more detail about just what happened to the gang after they thwarted the Framework at the end of last season.
The abducted agents discover they have been confined to an interstellar prison/barracks — a locale that seems to correspond with the more recent otherworldly settings of recent Marvel feature films, including next year’s “Infinity War.”
In addition to Gregg, returning cast members include Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker as well as Natalia Cordova-Buckley, who’s been upgraded to a series regular as the super-fast Inhuman known as Yo-Yo Rodriguez.
“Agents of SHIELD” Season 5 premieres on Friday, Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
Watch the extended preview above.
