With Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s third season set to premiere in a little over two weeks, ABC and Marvel have finally released the synopsis for the first episode of the season, titled Laws of Nature. And while it doesn’t reveal much of anything new, it does provide a few bits of information that should help to get fans excited.
Perhaps most interesting? Constance Zimmer, who is joining the cast in a recurring role for season three, is not playing Abigail Brand as expected. She’s actually playing Rosalind Price. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen played coy about Zimmer’s role, only indicating that she would serve as an antagonist to Clark Gregg‘s Director Coulson and that she’d give the team reason to fear her early on.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” returns for an action-packed third season on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network, with Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Agent Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) leading the charge as S.H.I.E.L.D. searches the world for more powered people in the aftermath of their epic battle with Jiaying and her army of Inhumans.
