The actress who played Amy Pond crosses the, uh, pond for an upcoming episode of the Adult Swim series.
Gillan will be joining the “24”-meets-crazy-people series’ third season, presumably as one of the residents of San Diego’s fictional U.K. District. The announcement from Adult Swim says that she’ll be joining the cast alongside regulars Paul Scheer, Kate Mulgrew, Brandon Johnson, Rob Riggle, Martin Starr, and Peter Serafinowicz. So I guess this means seasons one and two actress June Diane Raphael won’t be returning?
From the official synopsis:
Terrorism is back and better than ever! Join Special Agent Trent Hauser and his elite counter-terrorist unit, the NTSF:SD:SUV:: (National Terrorist Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle::) for a third season of furious screaming, pregnant pauses, and even more civilian casualties than last season! This year, Trent and his team will employ some of the riskiest methods they’ve ever attempted in order to bring down San Diegan terrorist scum, including surgically swapping faces with each other, kidnapping an alien, faking their own deaths, getting into the viral video biz, unfreezing a former 1960’s radical, boarding Comic-Con Air, and heading into the dangerous British District of San Diego (which will be shot in the UK!) for a sweeping NTSF:SD:SUV:: two-part epic. Plus, the return of THE TIME ANGELS!
The new season is currently in production.
