Fans of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. don’t have to wait until the Tuesday, September 29th debut of the show’s third season to find out what changes are coming. If you happen to be on hand at Comic-Con 2015, you might just get an up-close-and-personal look yourself. ABC and Marvel announced today that the Secret Warriors are coming to season three of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as new allies and enemies alike. The show sees Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson scouring the world for people gifted with extraordinary powers who will sign on to help them face down supernatural threats; the problem is that another entity is also seeking out these Inhumans, which certainly complicates Coulson’s plan but should be quite entertaining for viewers.
There’s also news that S.H.I.E.L.D. ambassadors will be making the rounds at Comic-Con to recruit their own Secret Warriors via limited edition pins. Here’s the press release in its entirety for all the necessary details:
