An extended promo trailer for the midseason premiere of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been released following the stunning Series Season 2 finale of Agent Carter.
The new action-packed promo centers on the Marvel TV series’ Inhumans, which President Ellis (William Sadler) sees as a big whoppping problem; Agent Coulson’s (Clark Gregg) Secret Warriors; and Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), whose new identity has now been confirmed by the showrunners as Marvel Comics villain Hive.
Keen-eyed viewers will also notice the return of Carl “Crusher” Creel, aka Absorbing Man (Brian Patrick Wade), who was last seen in the second episode of Season 2, and Slingshot (Natalia Cordova-Buckley), using her über-cool speedy superpowers.

An extended synopsis for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s return has also been released, for what Marvel calls a “game-changing” second half of Season 3. Read up!
In the midseason premiere, "Bouncing Back," in the aftermath of his trip to Maveth, Coulson is more determined than ever to get to Gideon Malick and put an end to Hydra once and for all. Meanwhile, Daisy and the team encounter more Inhumans who have powers like they've never seen before, but will they be friends or enemies of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
No longer able to keep powered people out of the public eye, Daisy and Mack press forward to find more Inhumans, building a team of secret warriors whose mission is to train and protect powered people. However, the growing presence of Inhumans proves to be a polarizing issue, and the S.H.I.E.L.D. team must face conflicting public opinions and defend their team from groups who have a more extreme ideology.
The divide between those who want to protect Inhumans and those who seek to destroy them is constantly widening, and Hydra, now strengthened by Grant Ward, looms once again. However, Ward is no longer the same villainous traitor that they once knew, and the team faces an all-new enemy, whose motivations, goals and strengths are unclear. Uncertain about who (or what) they are facing, the stakes for S.H.I.E.L.D. and their assembled group of Secret Warriors are higher than ever, bringing some members of the team closer together and driving others apart. Will S.H.I.E.L.D. be able to stop one of the most powerful Inhumans to walk the Earth?
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns March 8 on ABC. Are you excited for the second half of the show?
