TVLine Items: Archie Panjabi Returns to Blindspot, Med Dad Cast and More

Blindspot Archie Panjabi Returns

Archie Panjabi has some unfinished (Big Bad) business with Blindspot.

The Good Wife vet — who recently returned to CBS via an episode of Bull — will reprise her Blindspot role of Zero Division head Nas Kamal in an upcoming Season 3 episode of the NBC drama. Weller’s onetime paramour plays “a small but integral part in bringing down the bad guys this year,” executive producer Martin Gero tells EW.com.

The EP also recently revealed to TVLine that viewers will learn if Nas was able to get any intel from Shepherd, who was placed in Nas’ custody during the Season 2 finale.

Blindspot currently airs Fridays at 8/7c on NBC.
