We’ve slowly been learning more about the fourth season of Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ and have just learned that the plans for the series have it taking place after ‘Captain America: Civil War‘. With Coulson out as the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. having been replaced by Jason O’Mara as the new director and Gabriel Luna showing up as Ghost Rider, the new synopsis is giving us some great new details!

Here’s the official synopsis of the upcoming season:

In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimatized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director (Jason O’Mara) to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack (Henry Simmons), and together they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of Enhanced people, aka Inhumans. They have been trying to track down and capture Daisy (Chloe Bennet), aka Quake, who has gone rogue in an attempt to atone for sins from the past. But with the world believing that Daisy is a dangerous outlaw who has taken down banks and bridges, the new Director has no qualms about taking her down for good. Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant.

Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna) will roar into the lives of Agent Coulson and the team as a junkyard mechanic who can turn on a dime into the terrifying Ghost Rider. Will Robbie be a friend or foe to S.H.I.E.L.D.–as well as the world, itself? Meanwhile, Fitz discovers that socially awkward genius and friend Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) has started putting the finishing touches on a new, secret invention.

While the new season will have S.H.I.E.L.D. back in the public eye, our team is now fractured and Coulson will no longer be in a leadership role that can guide the actions into keeping his friends safe. The new director seems hellbent on following the rules and this is going to put old friends such as Daisy into the line of fire. We’re going to clearly have a slew of internal drama happening as team members are pit against one another, at least officially, as the season plays out.

While I’m a little annoyed with another season having another government official hampering our agents, at least we don’t have to once again be dealing with Hydra. As much as I love the organization I think it’ll be nice having them take some time to grow back another head with a plan for world domination.
