According to Entertainment Weekly, Nick Blood will reprise his role as Agent Lance Hunter, a former mercenary who eventually joined the ranks of Phil Coulson's crew in large part due to nudging by his ex-wife (and fellow former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent) Bobbi Morse.

Regulars on the ABC drama's second and third seasons, Hunter and Morse were cut loose by S.H.I.E.L.D. during the events of Season 3 episode "Parting Shot," in which the two agents had their affiliations with the organization made public. The arc was intended as a backdoor pilot for Marvel's Most Wanted, a spinoff series following Hunter and Morse, but ABC eventually decided to pass on the project.
