Shortly after the debut of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D on ABC, the network was eager for more Marvel content. Agent Carter followed Peggy Carter after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger and the creation of S.H.I.E.L.D. As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, Enver Gjokaj, best known as Agent Daniel Sousa in Agent Carter, will reprise this role in the upcoming final season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
During a conversation with EW, the actor revealed that he never expected to return to this role following Agent Carter‘s cancellation. “It wasn’t anywhere near my brain,” says Gjokaj. “I would’ve been thrilled at any moment for it to come back, but I think as an actor you don’t have time. You just have to move on to the next project.” Eagle-eyed fans will also remember the actor briefly played an NYPD cop in 2012’s The Avengers as well.
The news serves a confirmation of the upcoming crossover. Last August, Full Circle Cinema reported that season 7 would feature a crossover with Agent Carter thanks to some leaked set photos.
Agent Carter came to an unceremonious end in 2016 after just 2 seasons. However, the potential for a crossover remained alive. Following the death of Peggy Carter in Captain America: Civil War, Agent Coulson was seen mourning her in a subsequent episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Additionally, Agent Carter‘s Howling Commandos have played a role throughout various moments in the series.
The seventh season of S.H.I.E.L.D. will feature the team traveling throughout time. Season 6 ended with the team arriving in 1931 and the latest synopsis promises more time-related adventures as well.
