Meanwhile over on ABC’s Super Fun Night — and also per our sister site Deadline –  Kate Jenkinson will reunite with sitcom lead Rebel Wilson, with whom she previously collaborated on the Aussie sketch comedy series The Wedge and Bogan Pride. Jenkinson will play an elite lawyer that Wilson’s non-Australian up-and-comer idolizes, effectively replacing The Newsroom‘s Kelen Coleman (who will still appear in the pilot).

  • Now that Kelen Coleman is a free agent again, which cooler (and likely more long-lived) show can they plug her into? I think she’d make a great Once Upon A Time character.

  • Can’t believe that Super Fun Night is casting another Aussie actress on the show much to the dismay of leading lady Rebel Wilson.

  • I love Kate Jenkinson on Offspring! Does that mean she won’t be back for next season?
