S1 Ep 17 No Ordinary Family – Lucy Lawless

Lucy is in a 3 episode arc (down from a 5 episode arc that was cut because the season episodes were cut by 2).  There was a possibility of Lucy becoming a recurring character on No Ordinary Family but... things are not looking healthy for NOF.

TV|Line is reporting that Julie Benz and Michael Chicklis have both booked pilots which signals that they don't expect NOF to get a second season. No second season, no Lucy as Mrs X. What a shame.

Benz has joined CBS’ untitled Susannah Grant supernatural medical drama which, like NOF, has high-concept elements. Jonathan Demme is directing the hourlong project, which centers on Michael (Patrick Wilson), an ultra-competitive surgeon whose life is changed forever when his ex-wife (Jennifer Ehle), a doctor running a free clinic, dies and begins teaching him what life is all about from the hereafter. Benz will play Michael’s sister, an unfocused and overwhelmed single mother with a huge heart.

The show’s star, Chiklis, last week signed on to topline another CBS pilot, the comedy Vince Uncensored. Both are in second position to the ABC superhero drama, which has struggled in the ratings and is unlikely to see a second season.
