Fans will see plenty more of Mack in Season 3!
Though Alphonso "Mack" Mackenzie (Henry Simmons) almost quit the organization at the end of last season, Coulson eventually got him to change his mind - and it looks like now he's sticking around for good!
Simmons is now the latest star to join the regular cast of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." for Season 3 when it returns to Tuesdays on ABC this fall, following quickly after the word that Luke Mitchell will also become a regular part of the series.
"Mack's story from Season 2 left him at a great place for us to continue, opening up new possibilities for the character as he takes charge of overseeing
S.H.I.E.L.D.'s storehouse of unexplainable or alien objects," said Executive Producer/Marvel's Head of Television, Jeph Loeb. "We couldn't be more excited to add Mack to our regular cast of heroes."
