A new batch of photos for season 5 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. show the casts' new costumes and tease their space-based roles. Last season on Agents of SHIELD, a number of momentous events threatened to rework the status quo of the series and upend the lives of the characters. Coulson made a deal with the Spirit of Vengeance, Fitz spent his time in the Framework as a human supremacist and torturer, Mack lost his daughter all over again, and the show ended things with a move to outer space. Though we don't yet know the full scope of season 5, Agents of SHIELD will have plenty to deal with from the fallout of season 4.
With the new season of Agents of SHIELD arriving this week, Marvel and ABC have been providing fans with an unprecedented look inside this series. Aside from trailers and posters, this weekend saw the first 17 minutes of Agents of SHIELD season 5 released online. The footage asked as many questions as it answered about the latest adventure for the agents, but fans won't have to wait much longer for the 2-hour premiere to shine some more light on Coulson and his team's new situation.
In anticipation of the premiere of Agents of SHIELD this week, Marvel's Facebook has added a new set of photos showing of the cast of season 5. Along with a group shot of the main characters, each gets their own spotlight, showcasing their updated costumes as they enter a new line of work.
While Coulson's look is fairly similar to his season 4 look once he became an agent again, the rest of the cast gets a dystopian upgrade. Leather, pads, and bandanas are all prominently featured as the team poses amongst giant rocks and various bits of construction equipment. Daisy's costume is the most strikingly different, looking markedly different from the work gear of the other agents and her previous tactical outfits.
Though all of the character's are locked in a steely superhero-worthy brood, Simmons looks noticeably forlorn as she gazes down. Fitz, Coulson, and Mack all have some emotional baggage they're be dealing with after season 4, but it seems Simmons won't be keen on her current predicament.
Despite the team's brand-new look, we know it won't last long. The upcoming 100th episode of Agents of SHIELD will be a major milestone and looks like it will bring the characters back to Earth around the season's halfway point. Until then, however, they'll be fighting some obscure Marvel Comics aliens and meeting all sorts of mysterious new characters.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 premieres with a two-hour episode on Friday, December 1.
