TVLine Items: Patton Oswalt Returns to S.H.I.E.L.D., Room 104 Ending and More


Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is bringing back a familiar face during its final season: Patton Oswalt — who has played assorted members of the Koenig family — will appear in an early episode of the ABC series’ farewell run, CBR.com reports. There are no details about Oswalt’s role.

In the upcoming season (premiering Wednesday, May 27 at 10/9c), Coulson and the team find themselves “stranded in 1931 New York City,” per the official synopsis. “With the all-new Zephyr set to time-jump at any moment, the team must hurry to find out exactly what happened. If they fail, it would mean disaster for the past, present and future of the world.” It was previously announced that Enver Gjokaj, whose Daniel Sousa was an agent with the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR) on Agent Carter, will reprise that role as a guest star on S.H.I.E.L.D.
