Richards joins Clark Gregg, who returns as Agent Coulson, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Gemma Simmons, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May and Chloe Bennet as Skye.
The series filmed a pilot earlier this year and, likely headed to series, is expected to begin airing in the fall of 2013. Joss Whedon directed the pilot and co-wrote it with his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen.
“Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D.” will be executive produced by the Whedons, Maurissa Tancharoen, Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb.
