Coupe’s Hannah Wyland graduated from the FBI academy seven years ago. Her ambition, combined with her looks and her confidence, has rocketed her past her competition in the intervening years. And then there’s this juicy bit, direct from the official character description: “She can turn on the soap, sex and romance, but at heart she’s a hardcore career agent with countless notches in her belt”?
Hannah first will show up in Episode 10, likely to air in early 2016; we hear the role comes with a series-regular option.
The part is a surprising turn for Coupe, who has built a career on comedic roles. In addition to Happy Endings, her TV resumé includes stints on Scrubs, Community and Benched. She recently appeared on The Mindy Project and Casual.
Coupe joins other Season 1 cast additions Jacob Artist, Anne Heche and Marcia Cross.
