For everyone out there who has missed Archie Panjabi on primetime TV, we come bearing great news: You will have a chance to see her on “Blindspot” moving forward into the second season.
Sources confirm that the former “The Good Wife” star has signed up in a major recurring role as the head of a secret NSA division, one that has been looking into the case of Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) from a distance. It makes some sense to us that the FBI would not be the only group who was investigating this, mostly because of the high level of intrigue surrounding Jane in the first place. It’s a great gig, and it will hopefully elevate the material on the MTV show even further than it has been to date.
This marks the second primetime network TV gig in America for Archie since leaving the CBS drama, given that she played a role on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” this past season since wrapping up her story as Kalinda. There was obviously a part of us who wanted to see her show up one more time on “The Good Wife” before that series dropped the curtain, but it always felt somewhat assured that this was probably not going to happen.
“Blindspot” will be airing on Wednesday nights this fall, and is going to have a special premiere on Wednesday, September 14 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time, much earlier than the majority of the shows airing during the fall season. Following this, it will settle into a timeslot at 8:00 the rest of the way.
