Meanwhile, speaking to Comic Book, Clark Gregg has confirmed that the first arc of the season will take place in space, as well as revealing that the Kree will be making their return to the show. However, fans hoping to see an appearance from S.W.O.R.D. will be disappointed, with Gregg stating that: “I don’t know that we have the rights to S.W.O.R.D. But I don’t know that we have the rights to a lot of things and suddenly you see a version of them that’s a little different.”
