Linda Hamilton, who figured into the fourth and final seasons of NBC’s Chuck, is returning to TV with a badass role on Syfy’s supernatural-tinged Lost Girl.
The Terminator film franchise alum will guest-star in Season 3′s 10th episode as Acacia, “a tough, sexy and ruthless assassin who has enjoyed a storied and deadly career.” As one might surmise — as one always should when it comes to ruthless, legendary assassins! — Acacia’s arrival will spell trouble for Bo and company.
In addition to Chuck, Hamilton’s TV credits include the upcoming miniseries Air Force One Is Down, FX’s Thief mini, Weeds and, of course, the original Beauty and the Beast.
Reminder: Lost Girl resumes its sophomore run this Friday at 10/9c, in its new time slot. The Season 2 finale airs Sept. 14; Season 3 will premiere sometime in 2013.
