Though many figured The Inhumans might take a backseat in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. following the events of seasons 3, we were recently assured that wasn’t going to be the case at all (in fact, we might just meet some of the classic team), and reinforcing that is the latest season 4 character addition.
IGN reports that Parminder Nagra (Bend in like Beckham, The Blacklist, ER) has joined the cast of Marvel’s flagship TV series as “a powerful political figure who is outspoken in her distrust of Inhumans and the threat they pose to society.” After all the Hive stuff in season 3, it does make sense that the government would be even more twitchy about the Terrigen Mist-afflicted folk, and it looks like this still unnamed new character will be leading the charge.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for its fourth season on Tuesday, September 20th in the new timeslot of 10:00 PM ET on ABC.
