11/26: Neat, those Xenomorph-ish aliens we saw in previews are named Vrellnexians. An obscure insectoid alien race created by Conway and Buscema back in 1973 in a Thor comic. Typical dominate and enslave the universe types. 11/27: New season cast photo released. The cast also wrapped filming the 100th episode and had a cake. My revised theory is, yes, they're in space but that was to distract you. The real revelation is they've been sent into the future. Time travel. And that 'asteroid belt' Coulson stared at is what's left of Earth. Maybe a tie in to a possible future where Thanos won then the tie-in to Infinity War will be they return to the present with some knowledge to prevent a key event from happening. But somehow this ship with what's left of humanity was launched just in time before Earth got blown up. Since it's Marvel, it'd be neat if it was 2099 but probably just a couple decades into the future. 11/28: Dove Cameron signed on for a role.
