Following the first trailer a while back, ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” has debuted the first cast photo from the upcoming sixth season of the Marvel Television series. With Coulson officially dead, the agency is in need of a new director, with Mack taking over the reigns.

The season five finale saw the team put a stop to Glenn Talbot, aka Graviton, but also saw longtime team leader Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) leave with Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) to return to Tahiti to live out his final days. The show returns in May. [Source: ABC]
