Agents Of SHIELD TVO Jeph Loeb Jeff BellMarvel Television’s beloved spy series, Agents of SHIELD, is entering its fourth season this fall as we follow the cases and adventures of Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization. The fourth season will be featuring more changes than just a new timeslot as we’ll be seeing the arrival of Robbie Reyes a.k.a. Ghost Rider, the spirit of vengeance, played by Gabriel Luna.

Last week at San Diego Comic-Con, TV Overmind participated in the Agents of SHIELD Press Room with several outlets to chat with the cast and crew behind the show to get some insight into what is coming in Season 4. Jeph Loeb (Marvel TV President and executive producer) and Jeff Bell (executive producer and show-runner), were two of the great talents we spoke with as they teased the fourth season and its darker layer this year.

Highlights of the interview:

-The show’s evolution and shift of tone as it has gotten darker with each timeslot move, especially with the upcoming fourth season as it will be airing at 10 PM.

-What the theme of Season 4 is going to be, with so many characters having gone through major changes in the past few seasons.

-Whether or not the show has a list of characters they can and can’t use, as well as what made them decide to bring in Ghost Rider into the Marvel Cinematic Universe through the show.

-What it was about Gabriel Luna that they loved so much that lead to the decision of casting him as Robbie Reyes/Ghost Rider.


Agents of SHIELD Season 4 begins on Tuesday, September 20 at their new time, 10/9c on ABC. What are you most excited about the 4th season of Agents of SHIELD? Are you looking forward to see the arrival of Ghost Rider? Let us know in the comments below.
