From the short clip, we can see that Clark Gregg will reprise his role as Phil Coulson – despite being killed off in the finale of season 5.
Gregg has previously teased that he'll be playing a "mysterious" new role in the upcoming season.
"[It's] very strange," he said at the time. "The Coulson role and persona, though always evolving and always having new parts of him revealed to me by our writers, became a very familiar skin in a way and to kind of change all that and suddenly find myself playing this other very mysterious person, who is not Phil Coulson.
"The mystery of who that person is and why he looks like that is something that they’ve done groundbreaking, wild stuff with, that I’m really lucky to play."
Agents of SHIELD returns for season 6 in May on ABC in the US and hopefully soon after in the UK on E4.
