Whatever Happened To The Cast Of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.? – Looper

Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” debuted on ABC following 2012’s “The Avengers,” with the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division — or S.H.I.E.L.D. — and Agent Phil Coulson connecting the series to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Clark Gregg had already established his newly resurrected character on the big screen through his roles in “Iron Man 2” and “Thor,” as well as the superhero ensemble film. Season 1 also welcomed mainstays like Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, and Iain De Caestecker.

In its early era, the series focused on superhuman threats, enhanced individuals, and the resurgence of Hydra who tried to recreate the super soldier serum used on Steve Rogers (Chris Evans). “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” initially tried to follow the events of the MCU timeline, but co-showrunner Jed Whedon told The Wrap that this eventually became too difficult as the show risked spoiling huge plot points for the movies. And, as the series progressed, it became easier for it to traverse a different path, with the team facing adversaries across space and time, until the final season.

Over the years, the show welcomed new stars to the cast while some familiar faces unexpectedly departed. It’s now been years since viewers said goodbye to their favorite team and you might be wondering what they’ve been doing since. Some stars have completely moved on from their characters while others are doing their best to preserve the show’s legacy. Keep reading to find out where the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” cast is now.

There would be no “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” series if it weren’t for Clark Gregg’s character, Agent Phil Coulson. The first season is quite literally dedicated to working out how he survived being stabbed through the heart in “The Avengers,” after all. As the series moves forward, Coluson cheats death a few more times, before he eventually dies in Season 5. Of course, this didn’t mean viewers had to say goodbye to the fan-favorite actor, who returned as Sarge in Season 6 and an LMD (Life Model Decoy) of Coulson in the final season. That was a huge change of pace for the actor, though, who admitted to Hollywood Life that he was unsure about this new direction. However, Gregg added that he was ultimately happy with how it all turned out.

Following the show’s 2020 finale, Gregg has continued to work within the MCU, voicing his original character in “What If…?” in 2021. He then appeared alongside “Charlie’s Angels” star Ella Balinska in the supernatural horror film, “Run Sweetheart Run,” before moving away from all things supernatural and sci-fi to star in Netflix’s feminist comedy-drama, “Moxie.” Speaking about the move he gushed (per Comic Book): “[To] not only be directed by Amy Poehler, but to get to play her boyfriend, was [a] really fun way to come out of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Outside of acting, Gregg uses his platform to raise awareness for issues surrounding men’s mental health. In 2022, he won the Pacific Clinics Champion of Mental Health Award.
