Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD: Nick Blood Returns as Lance Hunter

Despite his emotional goodbye from the series in Season 3 (watch below), which was supposed to set up a spin-off series with Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird that failed to materialize, EW reports that Nick Blood will return to Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD as his character Lance Hunter for the upcoming fifth season of the series. Palicki, meanwhile, is now co-starring in FOX’s The Orville with Seth MacFarlane.
