Castle Vet Penny Johnson Jerald Joins Seth MacFarlane's Fox Space Dramedy

Castle alum — and onetime Deep Space Nine freighter captain — Penny Johnson Jerald has been added to the cast of Fox’s live-action space dramedy created by and starring Seth MacFarlane.

Set 300 years in the future, the as-yet-untitled hourlong series follows the adventures of the Orville, a not-so-top-of-the-line exploratory ship in Earth’s interstellar Fleet. Facing cosmic challenges from without and within, this motley crew of space explorers will boldly go where no comedic drama has gone before.

Details on Johnson’s character — as has been the case with previous castings, including Adrianne Palicki (Agents of SHIELD) — have not been made available, Deadline reports.

    I really liked what she did to Fillion in Castle. I hope she does great.

    I go back to The Larry Sanders Show with her, and have followed her to just about every series she’s done since. I’m glad to see her land in Seth’s universe!
