ABC is reportedly planning an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff series, and we just learned some interesting scoop on what—or more accurately who—the potential new series is going to be about!
Deadline is reporting that season two additions to the S.H.I.E.L.D. cast Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood are currently finalizing deals to star in the spinoff. That means as much as these two ex-spouses may hate each other on the ABC show right now, they're going to be spending quite a lot of time together in the future.
Palicki plays the kickass Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird, on the ABC comic book show. When she was first introduced, she was undercover in Hydra, working for S.H.I.E.L.D. But as viewers recently found out, Bobbi was actually working as a double agent, spying on Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team for what she calls "the real S.H.I.E.L.D.," lead by Robert Gonzales (Edward James Olmos).
That reveal really ticked off her ex-husband Lance Hunter (Blood), who was working on Coulson's team and was just starting to rekindle their relationship until her betrayal almost cost him his new family. He's now on the run with Coulson, working against Bobbi and Gonzales.
The potential new spinoff, now being described as a Mr. and Mrs. Smith type of story with the exes working together, is being developed by S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeffrey Bell and co-executive producer Paul Zbyszewski, and will be set up plot-wise by events of this season. There will not be a planted backdoor pilot for the spinoff during this season of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Marvel reps had no comment on this casting news.
