July 3, 2014 (7:55 am) GMT
Having gone through a lot of stuff in season one, agent Coulson is 'reinventing himself and re-understanding himself as a person anyway,' the actor says.

What has happened on "" season 1 will change Phil Coulson into a different person in season 2. Teasing the upcoming installment, series regular tells IGN, "He's a very different Coulson than the guy who everyone knew."

He elaborates, "A lot of people who knew him in the old days say, 'He's different.' I think you would have to be different having gone through that stuff. So I think he's reinventing himself and re-understanding himself as a person anyway, which is probably really necessary to taking in the new environment and figuring out what SHIELD ought to be in a way that it doesn't get rotten again."

The actor, who also starred in Marvel's films "" and "", goes on sharing what changes in season 2, "So we go from having no SHIELD at all, with a director on the run, to a tiny Guerrilla SHIELD with Agent Coulson at its head, and maybe not in his own right head. That sounds fun. That sounds like an interesting season 2."

"S.H.I.E.L.D." writers have recently assembled to begin mapping out the story for season 2. The show will return this fall on Tuesdays at 9/8c on ABC.
