TVLine Items: S.H.I.E.L.D. Enlists ER Vet, Robin Hood Is Timeless and More

Have the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. met their match in Parminder Nagra?

The Blacklist and ER actress will recur in Season 4 of the ABC drama as a powerful political figure who is outspoken about her distrust of Inhumans and the threat they pose to society, Marvel.com reports.

Seeing as how Coulson & Co. continue to advocate for their Inhuman friends, Nagra’s character will face off with the team.

Nagra joins previous cast additions Jason O’Mara (Life on Mars) as the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., Gabriel Luna (Wicked City) as Robbie Reyes aka Ghost Rider and Lilli Birdsell (The Walking Dead: Webisodes) as Lucy, a beautiful woman with a very violent streak.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 10/9c.

    Still missed Parminder Nagra on The Blacklist since her character was killed off in the Season 1 finale but I’m happy about her new role on Agents of SHIELD and reuniting with her fellow ER co-star Ming Na Wen. Also excited about Sean Maguire’s guest starring role on Timeless (NBC).

      Anyone know why they wrote her out of Blacklist by killing her character? Was it her decision to not sign on for another season?

        Well, for me her character was so boring and bland, i was happy to see her go. Though i feel she was just a waste of talent. They only made her stand in front of the screen waiting for her line to come up. Agent Navabi was a much needed replacement. More lively and had more to do

        As with many shows of that ilk, they like to kill of a series regular to make the stakes feel high. As long as they never kill Aram…
