Season 3 of ABC's superhero series "Agents of SHIELD" concluded with the defeat of Hydra and Hive (Brett Dalton) and now Clark Gregg has teased about his character's role in the upcoming season after the events of Season 3 finale.

Talking with Entertainment Weekly, Gregg, who plays the character of Phil Coulson in the series, talked about his role now that he is no longer associated with SHIELD.

At the end of Season 3 finale titled "Ascension," a six-month time jump revealed that Daisy (Chloe Bennet) had gone rogue, while Coulson has broke all his ties with SHIELD. According to Gregg, Coulson will be going through some of the most difficult phases of his life in the upcoming season.

"He's not the director anymore; his destiny is not so much in his own hand as it used to be. The person he cares about is on the run and seems to be very sought after by the authorities. It's very much changing the game for Coulson. Certainly from that teaser of where we'll be next season, he does not seem to be in good shape," Gregg said.

According to Screen Rant, Coulson will have too much to deal with in the upcoming season as apart from recovering from Lincoln's death and Daisy's decision to defect from SHIELD, he will also make efforts to stop blaming himself for encouraging Life-Model Decoys (LMD), which were created by Holden Radcliffe (John Hannah).

The website has also stated that fans are looking forward to find out who will now be appointed the Director of SHIELD, now that Coulson has also left after Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson). Fury quit the post after Hydra's attempt to murder him that resulted with SHIELD being disassembled in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."

Though the exact air date has not yet announced by ABC for "Agents of SHIELD" Season 4, the series is expected to be released in late September or early October.
