The final season of Agents of SHIELD is set to air sometime next year and it is set to bring back familiar faces due to the presence of time travel.  It is being rumored that Hayley Atwell will join the show as the well-beloved Agent Peggy Carter. And now, it is being reported that Patrick Warburton, who plays Rick Stoner, is set to return in the final season of the ABC series. It was at Dublin Comic Con where he confirmed the exciting news.

Yeah I’m coming back. I shot some stuff recently with those guys. That was a lot of fun.”

As some of you may know, Warburton’s Stoner is a deep cut, having only appeared in two episodes last season as a video recording from the 70s, where he is seen introducing the Lighthouse to Agent Coulson and the team. Given that some time-travel shenanigans will be a big part of the season, there’s a good chance we’ll see the actual Rick Stoner. Season 7 is sure to be an exciting season for SHIELD fans as we get to meet new and returning characters. On top of that, fans will also be treated to a dose of SHIELD history.
