When it was announced that Michelle Hurd was cast on Lethal Weapon as recurring character Gina Santos, a police chief with a connection to Roger Murtaugh's (Damon Wayans) past, that left open a question. What does that mean for Hurd's character of Shepherd on NBC's Blindspot? It turns out that Shepherd won't be popping up on the series anytime soon.
Last season ended with Shepherd's plans to take over the U.S. Government defeated and her being interrogated by Nas Kamal (Archie Panjabi). But, according to series creator Martin Gero, there are no plans to bring the character back for season three.
We don't yet have a plan to bring her back, but it's not a closed door in any way. She's certainly busy because she's so amazing. We love her, and we'd love to find a way to bring her back, but there's no plan as of yet.
Hurd is a very popular actress having played recurring roles of D.A. Samantha Reyes on Marvel's Daredevil, Renee Grover on Hawaii Five-O and Linda B. Emery on Ash vs The Evil Dead all in 2016 and showing up on The Mysteries of Laura, Marvel's Jessica Jones, Devious Maids and Bosch in 2015. With all of these roles you'd think that casting directors have her on speed-dial.
