TVLine is reporting that Adrianne Palicki is being promoted to series regular on ABC’s Agents of SHIELD starting with the midseason premiere (currently titled “Aftershocks”).
Palicki, of course, plays “Bobbi Morse,” better known as the superhero Mockingbird to Marvel comics readers. Paliciki’s Morse has been one of several positive cast changes in the show’s second season, which has been significantly stronger than the first (which often felt like it was waiting so it would properly time out with the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier). The fact that Marvel is willing to invest this much of its IP in the series is, of course, promising for the show’s future as well.
Agents of SHIELD returns March 3rd.
