E4 Sets A January UK Air Date For Agents Of SHIELD Season 4
It’s been a little bit of a wait, but Agents Of Shield finally returns to the UK on Sunday, 29th January at 9pm on E4 for Season 4.
As we know from the end of Season 3, Daisy/Skye/Quake (Chloe Bennet) is now a former agent and has gone rogue after her dealings with Hive, in an attempt to atone for sins from the past. In light of the Sokovia Accords (see Captain America: Civil War!), and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization has appointed Jeffrey Mace (Jason O’Mara) as Director to be the face of the organization, who has forbidden Coulson and Mack (Henry Simmons) from chasing down their former teammate. Instead they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of ‘enhanced people’, aka Inhumans.
As for the rest of the team, Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant.
There is another new addition this season, in the form of Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna), a junkyard mechanic who can turn on a dime into the fiery skulled Ghost Rider! It remains to be seen if Robbie be a friend or foe to S.H.I.E.L.D. Another old face also returns, as Fitz discovers that socially awkward genius and friend Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) has started putting the finishing touches on a new, secret invention…
All will be revealed when Agents Of Shield returns to the UK on Sunday, 29th January at 9pm on E4.
