Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D final season to feature an Agent Carter crossover
After nearly 4 years since Marvel’s Agent Carter had aired its second and final season in 2016, EW brings word that the upcoming final season of Marvel’s Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D will be featuring an Agent Carter crossover with Enver Gjokaj making his return to the Marvel TV Universe as he reprises his role as Agent Daniel Sousa. Co-creator Jed Whedon has also teased Daniel Sousa’s fun interaction with Clark Gregg’s Phil Coulson, revealing how fans will get to see how similar their characters are.
“One of the things we think is so fun — especially with Coulson, who’s just a fanboy for S.H.I.E.L.D. history — is them just getting to walk right into [that history],” Whedon said in his interview with the outlet. “With Sousa, we had a good opportunity to hit that note with Agent Coulson.”
Gjokaj adds, “What’s unexpectedly, for me, really fun is that we realized once we got Coulson and [Sousa] in the same scene that they’re very similar.”
Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD wrapped production on its final season last summer, long before COVID-19 essentially brought the entertainment industry to a halt. When we last left our heroes, they had been transported back to 1920s New York City. Early looks at the upcoming episodes have shown the characters in era-appropriate outfits.
The series stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie, Natalia Cordova-Buckley as Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez, John Hannah as Holden Radcliffe, Adrianne Palicki as Bobbi Morse, Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Luke Mitchell as Lincoln Campbell, and Nick Blood as Lance Hunter.
The series was co-created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, who also serve as executive producers along with Jeffrey Bell and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.
The final season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will also mark the end of Marvel Television as we’ve come to know it over the past several years. Once Kevin Feige assumed his new role as Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer, the company’s TV division was absorbed by Marvel Studios, giving Feige control over all small-screen ventures. Although the series is ending, at least one cast member is convinced that its characters won’t completely disappear from the MCU landscape. Last fall, Ming-Na Wen suggested that Melinda May could have a role to play in future Marvel projects.
