Agents of SHIELD fans, we have some awesome news for you!
Entertainment Weekly confirms that Nick Blood, who played fellow SHIELD agent Lance Hunter, will make his return in the series’ upcoming season. Hunter, a former mercenary, debuted in SHIELD’s second season and exited in its third after being disavowed by SHIELD along with his ex-wife Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki). Details on how Hunter will return and how long he plans to stay are being kept under tight wraps by the showrunners, however, ABC has released an exclusive photo of Blood back on set. Check it out below!
With Blood’s return, we can’t help but wonder and hope that other fan favorites will follow suit, especially since last season saw the return of both Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) and Antoine “Trip” Triplett (BJ Britt).
There is still no official release date for SHIELD’s fifth season, but there is speculation it will premiere following the finale of Inhumans.
