Lincoln, who will debut sometime during the second half of Season 2, will assist Skye (Chloe Bennet) in understanding how to use and control here newly awakened Inhuman abilities.

“With the revelations surrounding Skye’s true identity in the Winter Finale, we knew we’d be introducing more Inhumans as our story progressed,” Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, tells Marvel.com. “The charming energy Luke brings to the role that will make him a character to watch as we continue our season.”
