Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood Head to the Mysterious Marvel Spinoff Series

Adrianne Palicki

Are Lance Hunter and Mockingbird getting their own spinoff series? At the very least, they’re a big part of something new as The Hollywood Reporter just broke the news that Nick Blood and Adrianne Palicki will be starring on ABC’s upcoming “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” spinoff. Executive producer Jeffrey Bell and writer Paul Zbyszewski are shepherding the series together, though there’s no word on who or what will be the focus. The trade does suggest, however, that the plot of the series will become clear after the end of “S.H.I.E.L.D.’s” second season. What’s more, they suggest that another show is on the way that will feature the “reinvention of an existing superhero character” with John Ridley developing.

Neither of the new series is 100% confirmed at this point, but both are being targeted to premiere sometime in 2016. It is also suggested that the odds are very much in favor of “S.H.I.E.L.D.” returning for a third season, but there’s no update on another season of “Marvel’s Agent Carter.”
