Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is set to return later his year, and now TV Guide has confirmation that Lucy Lawless, yes she of Xena fame, has been added to the show’s numbers.
No details are known on Lawless’ role at this stage, although more information is expected to be made available later this month when the Marvel Television Presents panel takes place at San Diego Comic-Con. That particular panel takes place at 3pm on Friday, 25th July in Ballroom 20.
Season 2 of S.H.I.E.L.D. will see the return of Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Leo Fitz, and Elizabeth Henstridge as Jemma Simmons.
Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to ABC on Tuesday, 23rd September. Here’s hoping a UK airing follows shortly after.
