Zap2It is reporting that Revolution star Tracy Spiridakos will be appearing on the third season of Showtime’s showbiz satire Episodes, which stars Matt LeBlanc, Stephen Mangan, and Tamsin Greig. The actress is set to play a family member of Morning’s in one episode of the show, though there’s no word on how she’ll be introduced.
When we last left Episodes, whose second season finale aired in August 2012, Sean and Beverly had reconciled after spending a season torn apart due to her fling with Matt and issues with the network. Carol was confronted with the opportunity of a lifetime when she was offered the job of network head, although she’d have to choose between staying loyal to Merc and advancing her career. With Merc’s dismissal, the future of Pucks is now in doubt, as the show lost its (initial) major champion in Merc and now its ratings woes can’t be covered up by pride. It’ll have to stand on its own if there is to be a second season and thanks to Sean and Beverly working things out, there might be a fighting chance for them to right the ship. And for the first time, that’s something that they both want to happen.
In addition to her role on the NBC post-apocalyptic drama, which moves to Wednesdays at 8:00 next season, Spiridakos has appeared on the likes of Being Human, Hellcats, and Tower Prep. She’ll join Chris Diamantopoulos in being new characters on Episodes, with the actor portraying the new head of the network now that Merc has been fired.
The nine-episode third season of Episodes is currently in production in London and will begin shooting in Los Angeles next month for an early 2014 premiere. Given that Showtime’s January 2014 lineup is already set (Shameless, House of Lies, and Californication), it will likely be pushed to April for a presumed pairing with Nurse Jackie and an hour-long drama to be named later.
