    oh it will be fun to see john noble on the librarians! :D
    why did they recast nicole noone though? would’ve loved to se have seen sonya walger back again.

    • taran63 says:

      Agreed on both points. I hope they at least asked Sonya Walger, I thought she did a great job in the role. If she didn’t want to do it, though, I’m fine with recasting the role.
      And with a name like the Order of Shadows, I’m guessing John Noble is the villain. And I’m fine with that!

  2. Hank says:

    Yeah, why recast Sonya Walger? They got every other original actor from the movies. I was hoping to see Noone but sucks they had to recast.Rachel Nichols isn’t a bad choice though.

  3. Great just love John Nobles.. can’t wait to see my favorite actor Christian Kane in action again as Jake Stone.. Hope him and John get lots of scenes together…Thanks for sharing

    More reason to watch the Librarians! John Noble anywhere, anytime is a delight. And being a longtime Continuum fan, love Rachel. Yay!

  5. JC1 says:

    I like Rachel Nichols, but as someone who has just recently bingewatched Librarians (tv show, then movies), I’m echoing the questions of “why recast Sonya Walger?”

  6. Alichat says:

    HA! I just tweeted the other day after finishing my Fringe binge that I needed more John Noble on my tv!! And he’s coming back as a bishop! LOL!

  7. Luis Roman says:

    Has “Perfect Citizen” been picked up by CBS? If so, how is Wyle balancing “Librarians” with “Citizen?”

  8. Joey Padron says:

    Happy John Noble will be guest starring on the new season of The Librarians! Can’t wait to see him on the show later this year!

  9. The best lead drama actress in America is no longer a free agent. Rachel Nichols is BACK on TV. Should’ve been nominated for 3 Emmys for Continuum.

  10. Expect The Librarians ratings to shoot through the roof as every sci-fi/fantasy fan will be watching!

    I clearly missed some big news – I thought the Librarians had been cancelled! It’s back?!
