The Synopsis for Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 has been revealed.
There will be new faces from the likes of Constance Zimmer (House of Cards), who is playing an unknown character, his partner, only known as Banks, played by Andrew Howard. Two new important inhumans will also be joining, Lush played by former NFL player Mat Willig and Joey played by Juan Pablo Raba.
The main synopsis is as follows:
Many months after their war with a rogue group of Inhumans, the team is still reeling. Coulson is again trying to put the pieces of his once revered organization back together while also dealing with the loss of his hand. His confidante and second in command, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), has yet to return from an impromptu vacation with ex-husband Andrew (Blair Underwood); deadly superspy Agent Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) is recovering from her traumatic torture at the hands of Grant Ward (Brett Dalton); Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) is obsessed with discovering the truth behind the mysterious disappearance of Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge); and all are on high-alert for the next move from Ward and Hydra. Ever since the existence of Super Heroes and aliens became public knowledge after the Battle of New York, the world has been trying to come to grips with this new reality.
Coulson assembled a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division). S.H.I.E.L.D.’s mission: to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive. But bigger threats loom ahead, setting the stakes even higher for the Agents, including the spread of Terrigen, an alien substance that unlocks superhuman abilities in select individuals; the emergence of new Inhumans who cannot yet control nor understand their powers; the rise of a new government organization that will go toe-to-toe with S.H.I.E.L.D.; the unknown properties of the massive alien Kree monolith, which has taken one of their own; and the constant threat of a rebuilt Hydra terrorist organization under S.H.I.E.L.D. traitor Grant Ward, who is making it his personal mission to take down Coulson and S.H.I.E.L.D.
If done right it all seems like it could be a very good season. However, Agents of Shield has slumped in the past with story and views, season one did really badly until it was saved by Captain America: The Winter Soldier with the emergence of Hydra and fall of SHIELD. It is unclear how much this season will link with films such as Age of Ultron or Ant Man, or the universe in general. It’s not likely to be much though.
Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is set for release on 29th September.
