Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Promotes Adrianne Palicki to Series Regular

SHIELD Palicki Series Regular

Adrianne Palicki is officially a part of Team Coulson.

As revealed in the press release for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s midseason premiere — now titled “Aftershocks,” and airing March 3 — Palicki has been promoted to series regular status.

The Friday Night Lights alum made her debut as Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse in late October.

ABC’s full synopsis for “Aftershocks” appears below:

After discovering an alien city with ties to his resurrection, Coulson and his team destroyed it before the forces of Hydra could claim its secrets, eliminating the villainous Whitehall in the process. But new threats to the world have arisen, including Skye’s father, Cal, who now seeks retribution against Coulson for stealing his revenge against Whitehall; a disturbing alliance between former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Ward and Agent 33; the enigmatic Raina, who struggles with her transformation into something inhuman by the alien Obelisk and seeks vengeance; and Skye, who developed mysterious new powers from the Obelisk but whose lack of experience with her new abilities may threaten the safety of those she loves.

Meanwhile, Bobbi and Mack begin the next phase of a plan which seems to have grave repercussions for Coulson and his team, who are unaware that there’s another mysterious force moving against them. And as Hunter is forced to make the biggest choice of his life, Coulson will find his mission threatened by this shocking endgame.

In the midseason premiere, “Aftershocks,” Coulson’s team must deal with the consequences of their war with Hydra as shocking revelations threaten to tear them apart, and Hydra makes a dangerous move that may involve a traitor in S.H.I.E.L.D.’s midst.

    • Nellie says:

      Yes! So glad to hear this! She’s awesome, but they need to watch out that they dont cast too many more people….the team is getting bigger, although…..Trip was one of my favorite newcomers……what a waste!

  2. Rainy says:

    Best news I’ve heard all day. Love her, love her character, love everything about this news.

  3. Heidi says:

    Still will miss Trip.

  4. Amy says:

    Yup, excellent decision.

  5. James D says:

    awesomesauce. I really enjoyed Agent Carter but I’ve been seriously jonesin for some AOS. Palacki adds a lot to this show i’m glad she’ll be a mainstay.

  6. Mary says:

    great news! Adrianne is amazing as Bobby! I hope someday she take this act to the big screen

  7. kate says:

    Yeah I love Bobbi but I am concerned about what her and Mack have been working on and almost less big picture stuff but that Mack befriended Fitz, Bobbi is Simmons hero and well poor Hunter. His ego is pretty fragile and Skye is his only friend left and she’s a little busy.

  8. Roguesfanboy says:

    Yesss!! She’s honestly my favorite character in AOS right now so glad to hear this. :D

  9. LE says:

    So happy to read this!

  10. Wordsmith says:

    I wonder if the success of Agent Carter had any influence on TPTB pulling the trigger on officially locking down another kickass lady for the flagship show.

  11. JC says:

    Where is the series regular announcement?

  12. Drew says:

    She is the best part of the show. Still, she could do so much better.

  13. canadian ninja says:

    This is a great move for the show. Adding an established marvel comic books character onto the permanent roster is something they’ve direly needed.

    A definite win for SHIELD.

  14. Joey Padron says:

    Great news! She is great as Bobbi. Can’t wait for show to come back next month!

  15. scribe says:

    About frigging time.

  16. Maya says:

    So happy! I love Bobbi. Want to see her and Melinda in action together.

  17. eva says:

    Yay, she’s a Badass!

  18. Her character’s grown on me, since they’ve downplayed the kinda Mary Sue elements she got in her first episode (not so much being nigh unstoppable as just everyone immediately likes her and such and can’t stop gushing) and rounded her out decently. I will say I miss Trip through.

  19. ? says:

    I just want Hunter to go away and for Ward to get a bullet in the head. If this makes either of those any more likely, I’m happy.

  20. Josh says:

    They better not make their only Avenger evil…And Hunter? Who cares about Hunter. BLAH…Nothing on Fitz, Simmons or May either….

  21. Mark says:

    With this announcement does this hint now at a possible Jeremy Renner guest appearance. To start his and hers impending relationship….. Or aren’t they going to bother with that part of the comics…..

  22. R.O.B. says:

    Thumbs up. She chews up this role and deserves to be a full time cast member. Some actors just look like they are having a blast playing their characters.

  23. Carrie says:

    This is a no-brainer. She’s awesome.

  24. Juan says:

    YESSSSSSS, she is so fun as Bobbi

  25. murley says:

    I have been hoping to hear this news! She is a great addition and there is a lot she can generate story wise. Plus adding a series regular feels like a vote of confidence from ABC and gives me an extra glimmer of hope for a renewal.

  26. This is great news, but Bobbi Morse/Mockingbird should have been a permanent character from the start. Certainly they did her a disservice by making her the ex of Lance Blood Hunter or whatever his name is instead of Hawkeye. Hunter(?) hasn’t made much of an impression but Bobbi has been terrific. She is an Avenger and I hope she appears in the films later on.

  27. liame says:

    Ugh, this show just keeps getting worse.

  28. Hunter is my favorite character on the show and Bobbi/Hunter my OTP. So this made me very happy!
