Did you catch the premiere of “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena” the other week? The prequel was a breakout hit just like its predecessor “Blood & Sand” and it reacquainted us with some familiar faces including Lucy Lawless. The New Zealander has some time off before production on season two begins and she’s spending it moonlighting on another network. According to TVLine, Lawless will appear in a multi-episode arc on ABC’s “No Ordinary Family.”
Sources have exclusively told the site that ABC has tapped Lawless to guest star in at least five episodes of the sci-fi comedy series. The actress will “play a powerful woman and potential adversary for the Powell clan whose agenda could put the family in danger.” Her stint on “Family” is expected to carry on until the end of the season. The network is hoping that she’ll give the show a much needed boost.
Hopefully Lawless’ appearance will also earn the show a second season pick-up. The actress has a hardcore group of fans and we’re a part of them. We’ve followed her from “Hercules,” to “Xena,” to “Tarzan,” to “Battlestar Gallactica,” to “Spartacus,” and now “No Ordinary Family.” We’ll be there with bells on!
Will you tune in to watch Lawless on the show?
