Agents of SHIELD season 7 start time, channel

The Marvel's Agents of SHIELD season 7 episode 1 starts soon, at 10 p.m. Eastern tomorrow (Wednesday, May 27) on ABC.

It's time we bid farewell to the OG Marvel television show and watch Agents of SHIELD online. Season 7 is the last chapter for the ABC drama and guess what? It involves everyone's favorite plot device: time traveling!

Of course, the Marvel television universe isn't completely ending, it's only expanding. Several Avengers spinoff series are set to debut on Disney Plus later this year and in early 2021, starting with The Falcon and Winter Soldier and WandaVision

But Agents of SHIELD was the first live-action show from Marvel, joined on ABC by Agent Carter and on Netflix by Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron First. Netflix and Marvel broke up, undoubtedly due to the launch of Disney Plus. But since Disney owns both Marvel and ABC, Agents of SHIELD was able to continue until it could tell a proper ending. 

Agents of SHIELD season 7 finds the team time traveling back to 1931 to prevent the Chronicoms from taking over Earth. Helping them is a LMD (life model decoy) of Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), who retains all the memories of the dead human character. Meanwhile, Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) is still recovering from the near-fatal injuries she suffered in the season 6 finale.

The Chronicom Hunters will stop at nothing to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. and the team will have to make some difficult decisions to fight them — including saving Hydra!

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch Marvel's Agents of Shield season 7 online. Plus, watch a trailer below:

The good news is that Brits can watch Marvel's Agents of Shield season 7 on E4. The bad news is that there is no confirmed release date. If you go by season 6, it's likely that the new season will debut on E4 a few weeks after the American premiere.

Marvel's Agents of Shield cast

Most of the main Marvel's Agents of Shield cast is returning for season 7. That includes:

  • Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson
  • Melinda May as Ming-Na Wen
  • Chole Bennet as Daisy Johnson
  • Iain de Caestecker as Leo Fitz)
  • Elizabeth Henstridge as Jemma Simmons
  • Henry Simmons as Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie
  • Natalia Cordova-Buckley as Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez
  • Jeff Ward as Deke Shaw

Joining them are recurring cast members and guest stars. Joel Stoffer returns as Enoch Coltrane, a Chronicom anthropologist who is posing as a human and helping the SHIELD team. Patrick Warburton will also reprise his role as Agent Stoner. He previously appeared in archival footage from the 1970s, so it seems the team will be traveling to different time periods. Patton Oswalt will guest star once again. He has played multiple characters in the SHIELD universe, all members of the Koenig family.

Then, there are two new faces to Agents of SHIELD, though not to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hayley Atwell's Agent Peggy Carter will pop up, possible thanks to the time traveling storyline, as will Enver Gjokaj's Agent Daniel Sousa.
