TVLine Items: S.H.I.E.L.D. Spaces Out, GH's Jax Is B&B's NuThorne and More

Agents of SHIELD Recap Coulson Outer Space

As with all things Marvel — and especially since S.H.I.E.L.D. won’t return until Inhumans has wrapped its eight-episode run on Friday nights (starting Sept. 29) — intel on what’s ahead remains scarce. Even star Ming-Na Wen at this month’s Heroes & Villains FanFest would only confirm that the new season will arrive in late November, while vaguely teasing, “You will be very, very impressed [by the premiere]. There’s a lot of action.”

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…
