As Summer mentioned at the panel at Supanova Melbourne, she is coming back for the second season of Alphas as Skylar Adams.
They are currently filming episode 6 of season 2 “Alphaville” which looks like it could be the episode with Summer as guest star. The show will have its season premiere on Syfy on July 23 at 10PM. Its not official yet if Summer will guest star in episode 6, but if she does, it should air on August 27. We hope to have more details soon.
Here is the official press release:
Premieres Monday, July 23 at 10PM
In Syfy’s action-packed hit drama series, an unlikely team of ordinary people with superhuman physical and mental abilities – known as Alphas – takes on mysterious cases the CIA, FBI and Pentagon are unable to solve and go head-to-head with criminal Alphas.
Season 2 picks up eight months after last year’s finale with the stage set for an explosive turn of events at the Binghamton facility (the Guantanamo of the Alpha world) that could have devastating, far-reaching consequences. Dr. Lee Rosen (Emmy Award-winner and Academy Award-nominee David Strathairn), having exposed the existence of Alphas to the unsuspecting public, finds himself discredited and imprisoned by a government desperate to cover up his revelation. The rest of the core team has disbanded and some, without Rosen’s guidance and care, have regressed to their old, destructive ways. They must now battle their individual demons in order to reunite and try to save their own.
Alphas also stars Malik Yoba, Warren Christie, Azita Ghanizada, Ryan Cartwright and Laura Mennell. Erin Way (Detroit 187, Private Practice) joins the cast this season as “Kat” a mysterious young loner whose Alpha ability allows her to pick up any skill at a glance. But while her skills are permanent, her personal memories are short-lived. The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions and BermanBraun Television with executive producers Bruce Miller, Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun, Gene Stein and Zak Penn. Penn and co-executive producer Michael Karnow are series creators.
Hollywood Reporter has a lovely little article acknowledging the ten years Anniversary of Firefly.
If, ten years ago, you would have told the superfans who were calling themselves Browncoats that the stars of their beloved and — just-canceled — space western Firefly would one day be at the top of the Hollywood food chain, you’d have gotten plenty of crazy looks. But today, you could also be teasing, “I told you so.”
There is a new videos of Summer’s panel from the Supanova Melbourne online. It does not cover the whole panel, but the first 18 minutes.
As we heard before Summer has a doc named Stanley. On the panel she talks about how she rescued him. She also speaks about the shooting of the music video, her favorite tscc and firefly episode, how she prepared for her role as River and her character Skylar on Alphas.
