Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Much as we’re enjoying all the Inhuman action Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. can bring, there’s a palpable question if Coulson and co. will be back for Season 5. An actual Inhumans series complicates that prospect, but it seems an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. renewal is imminent, according to reports.

It remains an open question whether the Marvel movie and TV universes will ever reconcile, but Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will add a new wrinkle with its April 4 return. Catch a glimmer of the “What If” Hydra universe with first photos and a new synopsis for the final Season 4 “pod.”

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. won’t be back with its “What If” pod until sometime in April, but that isn’t stopping the team from imagining the past four seasons with a Hydra twist. See for yourself, with some clever posters showing how Agents of HYDRA might have unfurled in another reality.
