There is a little bit less than a week until fans can see what the fifth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will bring. With (most of?) our heroes in space, the only fans that have had a chance to see this new world are those of us that attended New York Comic Con in October.

Now, in honor of actress Natalia Cordova-Buckley‘s birthday, Clark Gregg has shared a special surprise with fans: the first 17 minutes of the season!

Marvel originally teased that this surprise would come tomorrow, leaving fans to wonder what was coming. Luckily, we don’t have to spend this Saturday night exploring the possibilities, but instead, there is yet another Marvel creation to binge.

There is no shortage of entertainment for Marvel fans online, these days. In the last eight days, we have gotten the full season of Punisherthe first three episodes of Runaways and now this sneak peak of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Perhaps Gregg was worried that fans would go through withdrawls, as we ran out of new content.

What do you think of this beginning of the fifth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Are the special effects out of this world? Discuss your sadness at how much this clip is lacking in Leopold Fitz, in the comments! Meanwhile, we’ll be able to see the entirety of the first two episodes on Friday, December 1, on ABC.
