“unREAL’s” Constance Zimmer Joins Cast; Blair Underwood Returns for Third Season

MARVEL’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.“, is going full throttle. They will be welcoming a new face to the cast and will be welcoming a former cast member back into the fold for several episodes in the upcoming third season of the television series. Read on to learn more about who will be joining, and who will be rejoining the show.

According to the official website of MARVEL, Constance Zimmer, who is now most popularly known for her role as the scheming producer of “Everlasting” on Lifetime’s dark and gritty reality television show expose drama “unREAL”, will be joining the cast of MARVEL’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” for its upcoming third season.


Not much is currently known regarding her character, except that the official MARVEL website describes her as the head of an organization, aside from S.H.I.E.L.D. that are searching for powered people. It was especially in the aftermath of everything that occurred with the Inhumans in the second season.

According to Jeph Loeb, the Head of MARVEL Television, Zimmer was perfect for this role. She is not just a powerful presence on screen, which is needed in order to clash against Clark Gregg’s Phil Coulson.  She also adds a particular “wit” and “spark” to the role. Audiences and viewers can attest to the fact that Zimmer’s performance in “unREAL” alone would definitely justify why she is the perfect antagonist to Gregg’s idealistic Coulson.

Also,  according to the official website, Agent Melinda May’s (Ming-Na Wen) ex-husband, Andrew Garner, who is portrayed by Blair Underwood, is here to stay, as he will be featured in several episodes in the third season.

At the end of the second season, May finally took a much needed vacation, and went on a romantic getaway vacation with her ex-husband. It made fans wonder whether May would be back and whether the two would get back together.

However, not much is known yet regarding the details of Andrew’s return. It isn’t clear if he will be S.H.I.E.L.D.’s consulting psychologist again, as he was during the organization’s heyday.
