At the end of Nashville‘s second season, Deacon proposed to Rayna (after Luke did the same), thereby leaving her with a very big decision to make. But how will a new muse affect her decision?

EW has confirmed that Brette Taylor is coming to Nashville‘s third season as Pam, a backup singer for Luke Wheeler who will eventually become Deacon’s muse. And according to TVLine, which first reported the news, Pam has a “complicated” past that will make its way into the picture. Don’t we all.

Nashville returns for season three on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 10 p.m. on ABC.

First, Skye gets a father, and now the team gets a mechanic?

EW has confirmed that NYPD Blue‘s Henry Simmons has joined season two of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Alphonso Mackenzie, a mechanic. Few details have been released other than that Alphonso is in his early 30s, which makes him age-appropriate for just about everyone.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m ET on ABC.

Kyle MacLachlan joins 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' as Skye's father

Since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. first premiered, the show has been hinting at the identity of Skye’s parents. It’s been an ongoing topic of discussion between May and Coulson, and one that climaxed in the season 1 finale, when Raina handed an unknown person a photo of Skye claiming that she’d found his daughter.

Although we don’t know how he will fit into the context of the show, Skye’s father will definitely enter the mix in season 2. Sources confirm that Kyle MacLachlan has been cast in the role, though there’s no word yet on how long he’ll be sticking around.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m ET on ABC.

J.R. Ramirez joins 'Arrow' season 3 as Wildcat

For those Arrow fans wondering how Laurel might start to make the transition from feisty district attorney to leather-wearing vigilante, well, we might have just figured it out.

EW has confirmed that J.R. Ramirez is joining Arrow‘s third season as Ted “Wildcat” Grant. Ted is an ex-boxer who will run a gym for underprivileged youth in Starling City. But how might Laurel fit into this picture? Well, in the comics, Ted is a member of the Justice Society of America, and it just so happens that he specializes in training crimefighters such as Black Canary. So maybe Laurel will be putting that leather jacket to good use after all.

Arrow returns for season three on Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m.

Portia de Rossi joins season 4 of 'Scandal'

When last we saw Olivia Pope, she was flying off into the sunset (or maybe just flying off) with Jake by her side—leaving behind a broken Fitz, who’d just lost his son and realized some horrible things about his father. D.C. now rests in the hands of Olivia’s own father, who once again took over B-613. So what awaits the team when season four starts up? How about a new face?
