Look who else is finally returning to Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!

Hot on the heels of the news that Nick Fury is heading back to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comes word that it’s Maria Hill's turn to make her eagerly awaited return.

TV Line reports that actress Cobie Smulders will be back as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill in the Tuesday, April 29, episode. Right in time for May sweeps!

Smulders made her first kickass appearance as Maria Hill on the big screen in The Avengers, and was back again in this weekend’s box-office smash hit Captain America: The Winter Soldier -- the end of which *MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD* also hinted at a new line of work for the badass agent.

Seems like Colonel Fury’s (Samuel L. Jackson) right-hand woman is to play a large role in the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV episode, and there will be a Coulson (Clark Gregg)/Hill teamup, with a whole lotta action peppered in.

The last time Cobie Smulders was in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was way back when in the pilot episode, so it'll be good to see her back with the team on the Bus.

As for Nick Fury, he’ll make his return in the May 13 season finale.

Are you excited to see Cobie Smulders back as Maria Hill on ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
