Sneak Peek footage, plus images from the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." 2-hour season 5 premiere "Orientation", set in outer space, written by Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen and directed by Jesse Bochco, airing December 1, 2017 on ABC:
"...'Agent Coulson' and his team escaped 'the 'Life Model Decoy' 'Framework' and awakened in the real world.
"Little did they know that 'Aida' was now fully human – and with multiple 'Inhuman abilities' – with the dangerous notion that, with 'Fitz 'by her side, she could change the world.
"After defeating her with the aid of 'Ghost Rider', the team went out for a celebration but were interrupted by a mysterious man who rendered them frozen.
The next thing we see is Coulson onboard a ship... in space.
"Coulson will discover that some, but not all, of his 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' colleagues were taken with him and placed onboard the ship.
" As they come in contact with some of the vessel's inhabitants, it becomes abundantly clear that something has gone terribly wrong..."
In addition to Clark Gregg as 'Coulson' from the Marvel Universe films, principal cast members Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge and Henry Simmons return from previous seasons, with Natalia Cordova-Buckley promoted to the principal cast after appearing in a recurring role since season three.
