Lucy Lawless Joining Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Jul 21, 2014

The Whedonverse is getting a dose of the warrior princess — although it's unclear exactly what kind.

Lucy Lawless is joining the cast of Joss Whedon's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for season two, TVGuide.com reports, but specifics about her role aren't yet known.

In addition to playing the title character in Xena: Warrior Princess, Lawless has also had stints on Parks and Recreation and Battlestar Galactica.

The second season of the Marvel Comics-inspired show about a peacekeeping agency operating in a superhero-filled world returns Sept. 23 on ABC.
