Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is filling out its ranks for season 5 — and EW has an exclusive first look at the newcomers.

When last we left them, Coulson (Clark Gregg) & Co. were expecting to be arrested by government agents but instead were kidnapped by some shadowy figures — S.W.O.R.D., right? — before viewers picked up with Coulson sometime later in space. Now, the team will have to discover where they are and how to get home while the clock runs out on humanity.

But they won’t be alone! With season 5 heading to space, the show will be introducing a whole new world with new characters, so EW gathered intel and exclusive first looks as a primer for what’s ahead. Let’s meet some of the newbies, whom the team will meet in space.

Matthias Clamer/ABC

Deke (Jeff Ward)
Deke is the ultimate survivor and roguish scavenger, the guy who can get people what they need, but at a price of his asking. With his sharp mind and quick wit, he is both a real asset in a tight spot and a hard man to trust.

Jennifer Clasen/ABC

Tess (Eve Harlow)
Tess is resourceful, striving to be self-sufficient in very desperate circumstances, but she has hung on to her hopes for a better future for herself and those closest to her. She is living proof that even in the toughest of times, good people will still fight for each other.

Jennifer Clasen/ABC

Flint (Coy Stewart)
Flint is a young man who’s been forced to grow up fast in a tough environment, but hasn’t lost his desire to make something of himself. When he crosses paths with our S.H.I.E.L.D. team, he just may get the chance to prove that he’s capable of big things. Fun fact: Flint is based on a character from Inhumans comics.

Grill (Pruitt Taylor Vince)
Grill is a gruff taskmaster, lording over those under his command with an unforgiving temperament. He has no illusions about the world he lives in and this makes him a man not easily fooled, or crossed.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return with a two-hour premiere on Friday, Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) assembles a team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to handle strange new cases.
