Agents of SHIELD season 5 spoilers: Meet the new space crew

Agents of SHIELD season 5Until this week, details on Agents of SHIELD season 5 were extremely hard to come by. Now, we’re getting them all at once and CarterMatt is here to hook you up with the scoop!

Before diving into all of this, let’s start with a quick primer – At the end of season 4, the aftermath of the Aida showdown left Phil Coulson in a very unusual place after he was taken: Space. He was seen aboard a ship, but it was not altogether clear if he would remain there or if many of the other characters were there as well.

Even though it may be a little too early to say one way or another that Coulson’s entire crew is up in space with him, the show is going all-in on this storyline based on some of the information (and some of the castings) that we’ve got for you today. Read on to get some more information.

Deke (Jeff Ward) – This is one of the few castings we knew about before today. He’s a smart, savvy scavenger who excels at getting people what they need when they need it. Yet, with this sort of service there is a heavy price that may need to be paid by many different characters.

Tess (Eve Harlow) – She is an eternal optimist, someone who isn’t necessarily idealistic, but does think that good will win if you fight hard for it. She’s gone through a tremendous amount in her life.

Flint (Coy Stewart) – Per Entertainment Weekly (who first reported on some of these castings), Flint is based off of a character who first appeared in some of the Inhumans comics. He also just so happens to be someone desperate to create a future for himself and will do almost anything that he can in order to make that future happen. This is an exciting character and someone we’re pumped to learn more about.

Grill (Pruitt Taylor Vince) – This is not someone you really want to mess with. He understands that this is a difficult world and he’s willing to make the tough calls. He is a leader, but also one that doesn’t hold anything back. You have to be prepared for some tough love around this guy.
