Now that Agents of SHIELD has returned after a months-long hiatus, the show rushes forward full steam ahead. As seen in the Season Six premiere, Clark Gregg returns in a mysterious new role, which is featured heavily in the preview for next week's episode "Window of Opportunity."
Though not that much information has been revealed about Gregg's new character, we know his name is Sarge and that he's a space pirate of sorts — almost akin to the marauders we saw throughout last year. Earlier this year, Gregg teased his new role, calling is "a little disturbing."
"What [producers] Jed and Mo Whedon and Jeff Bell came up with, with the other writers, fulfilled all those criteria," said Gregg. "And I’m really excited for people to see what they came up with. It may be a little disturbing, but this is a very different person... There’s a big mystery here. And I think that this person is as surprised as they are, that they seem to recognize his face... I probably wasn’t supposed to say that."
The synopsis for next week's episode, "Window of Opportunity," can be found below.
"While Fitz and Enoch struggle in space, Sarge and his team move forward with their mysterious mission on Earth.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley and Jeff Ward. Guest starring is Lucas Bryant, Matt O’Leary, Brooke Williams, Winston James Francis, Paul Telfer and Sola Bamis.
