The fourth season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. came to an end last night as Ghost Rider helped Coulson and his team took Aida down once and for all. But as the threat of Aida came to an end, a new chapter began a mystery man abducted Coulson and his team. But this new force took it to a whole new level as he placed Coulson somewhere in space.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producers Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen and Jeff Bell chatted with the site as they offered up a few teases for what’s next. We quickly saw a glowing blue light outside of Coulson’s ship last night and according to Whedon, it’s definitely meant to be a clue to where Coulson is.
“Oh, it’s a clue. Read into it as hard as you can. I can’t wait until you see it. Everything is a clue. We can’t say anything really about the end. It’s all meant to get you asking these questions, so at least we did our job there.”
While EW did ask the producers if the space arc would perhaps have anything to do with the upcoming Marvel series The Inhumans, Whedon simply said “We can’t say.” Even though Aida is down, that doesn’t mean that the mess she caused for the agents is over. When asked for a tease on what will be happening back on Earth, Whedon stressed that S.H.I.E.L.D. will have to fight once again to clear their name after the events of the finale.
“It’s definitely not resolved. We’ve hit a low point in terms of the public view of S.H.I.E.L.D. because after the Triskelion fell and Hydra took over, it was vanished, and it gave them a gleam of hope this year of, “Okay, we’re going to try to do it right. We have this new director and this new PR mission,” and that could not have gone worse with Daisy now on tape committing a horrible crime — it was, of course, not her. The public perception of S.H.I.E.L.D. is at an all-time low, so we have not resolved that, and there will be still more fallout from it.”
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 will premiere sometime at the end of the year at its new timeslot, Friday nights at 9/8c on ABC.
