There have been rumors to the contrary lately, but The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that ABC has handed out a pilot order of a Marvel series starring Adrianne Palicki as Bobbi Morse/Mockingbird and Nick Blood as Lance Hunter, reprising their roles from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Marvel have depicted the series as a new take and will focus on the adventures and shenanigans of the partners/sometimes lovers. Palicki’s character especially was an instant hit on the series when she joined in Season 2.
The new series will be titled Marvel’s Most Wanted. The Hollywood Reporter’s source said it was too soon to say when it would be launched or whether there will be a backdoor pilot in the third season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D returns for the third season on ABC on September 29th, 2015.
