Guest Appearance on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’!

Exciting news! We have a brand new guest appearance to look forward to!

Grey’s Anatomy‘s Shepherd sibling puzzle is at long last complete. Amy Acker has been tapped to play the pivotal role of late Derek Shepherd’s oft-mentioned-but-never-seen fourth sister, Kathleen, TVLine has learned. As we first reported last week, the character will make her long anticipated entrance in the forthcoming Amelia-centric episode.

Little is known about the mysterious Kathleen (aka “Kate”), but it was previously established that she — like her other siblings — is a doctor (her speciality being psychiatry). Of Derek’s other three sisters, only Caterina Scorsone’s Amelia remains on the show. The roles of Liz Shepherd and Nancy Shepherd were previously played by Neve Campbell and Embeth Davitz, respectively.

“I’ve been doing the show for a long time and just hearing what [the episode is] about fills me with nervous excitement,” Scorsone previously enthused to TVLine of the Amelia-focused hour, which will be written by Julie Wong and directed by Bill D’Elia. “It’s not just, ‘Let’s follow Amelia to the neuro lab.’ It’s definitely a little standalone. It’s almost like a little movie on its own.”

Acker — who is thus far committed to doing just one episode of Grey’s — currently stars on Fox’s The Gifted as moms-to-mutants Caitlin Strucker. Just weeks away from its Season 2 finale, Fox’s lowest-rated, least watched drama has yet to be picked up for the 2019-20 TV season. Acker’s extensive TV resume also includes stints in Person of Interest, Dollhouse, Alias and Angel.

Matt Nix Talks About a Possible Season 3 for The Gifted

There’s no news yet on a possible season 3 renewal or cancellation, but posted below is the creator’s take on the 2nd season of The Gifted and the possibility of season 3.

There has been some serious blood in the water when it comes to Marvel TV since the fall of last year. Since then, we’ve seen Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Legion all either get canceled or, in the case of Legion, announce that the third season will be the last one. Everyone seems to be waiting for the axe to come down on The Punisher and Jessica Jones, then we have a show like The Gifted that is stuck in limbo. While critically the show is still doing pretty well, the ratings have suffered considerably in the second season. After the TCA panel, showrunner Matt Nix was interviewed by SyFy about the current season and where they hope to go from here.

… in terms of the current season it was about “factions,” adding, “… we wanted to explore multiple sides. Even people who might be ostensible allies in theory aren’t necessarily on the same side. Any political situation in the country right now, you can see the fights within the sides are at least as fierce between the sides.”

The X-Men have always been about exploring two very different approaches to one problem and in the case of The Gifted, they are also exploring the human side as well. There still nothing in terms of season three and Nix said: “I guess we’ll find out at Upfronts.” The Fox acquisition is being cited as one of the many reasons the X-Men are sort of up in the air right now. When asked how that might impact the show Nix thinks it’s a little too early to make that call one way or another.

“It’s all premature,” Nix says. “I guess the bottom line is, and I can speak for everyone who works on the show, we’d love to do it again. I think that most likely there is some evolution going forward in a situation where we come back; there probably is. As to whether it constitutes a creative compromise is impossible to know at this point. … In conversations I’ve had with my writers, everybody feels the same way, which is nobody would want to come back to terms that made it impossible to do a good show, and frankly we wouldn’t say yes to that. But the reality is that shows evolve.”

Finally, the impending changes to the X-Men universe have made a lot of people wonder how creators are reacting to it. Nix was asked if the sale made him or his team change how they approached the season two finale and he said that it didn’t.

“Not really,” Nix said. “Honestly, I was very pleased with how we landed this season in that there’s no question that there is a strong and specific direction to go if we come back. And there is no question if we don’t come back that we have told a story. Fortunately, nobody said, ‘Button it up. It’s done.’ But to be honest, even if we were certain, it’s cruel to be like, ‘Okay, everybody that stuck with this show, if we don’t come back, you’re screwed. There will be no satisfaction ever.’ That’s not a cool way to make television.”

The Gifted has two more episodes to wrap up its season two plotlines and we likely won’t find out the fate of the show until closer to May if Fox decides to wait until the last minute to announce a cancellation or a renewal. Fans of the show will have to just sit and wait to find out if this is the last time we’ll see these characters.
