Bobbi and Lance rejoining the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is now looking a bit less likely.
Having been written off ABC’s Marvel series in late March (to front a spinoff that was not meant to be), Adrianne Palicki has joined the cast of a comedic Fox drama created by and starring Seth MacFarlane, our sister site Deadline reports.
Ordered straight-to-series for a 13-episode maiden voyage, the ‘toon titan’s first live-action TV project follows the crew of the Orville, a “not-so-top-of-the-line exploratory ship in Earth’s interstellar fleet.” MacFarlane plays Ed, the ship captain, while Palicki has been cast as his ex-wife/First Officer, Kelly.
Additionally, Scott Grimes (American Dad, Justified) has been cast as Ed’s best bud and pilot, Gordon.
Addressing the topic of Palicki’s Bobbi Morse and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter rejoining the S.H.I.E.L.D ranks for Season 4, EP Jed Whedon hedged at Comic-Con last weekend, “It’s definitely classified. But keep watching.”
