Adrianne Palicki Can't Return to S.H.I.E.L.D. Because of Totally Real Space Show With Seth MacFarlane

Do these look like two people who aren't telling the truth?!

According to a report from Deadline, actress Adrianne Palicki, who played Mockingbird on beleaguered ABC drama Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., is not likely to return to the show despite her spinoff, Marvel's Most Wanted, being dropped by the network before it began. According to the report, the decision has nothing to do with S.H.I.E.L.D.'s sinking ratings and status as a probable career albatross, but instead is a result of Palicki landing a role on an upcoming television show from Seth MacFarlane, described as being about "space" and as a "comedic drama," and being produced for Fox.

The Outhouse cornered Palicki and MacFarlane on the street to try to get more details about the project.

The Outhouse: Can you tell us more about this space show?

Adrianne Palicki (glancing at MacFarlane): Huh?

Outhouse: The one that you're both starring in, the reason you can't come back to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?

Palicki: Oh, *that* space show!

Seth MacFarlane: Of course! That's the one. Why didn't you say so?

Outhouse: What's the show about?

MacFarlane: Well, it's a...

Palicki: It's a space show. A...

MacFarlane: A comedy!

Palicki: A drama!

MacFarlane (looking worriedly at Palicki): A... uh... comedic drama.

Palicki: Right.

Outhouse: Okay... And what's the show about?

MacFarlane: Uhhhhh...

Palicki: Space. It's about space.

MacFarlane: Right, space.

Outhouse: That's all? Space? Is it like... about a spaceship crew, like Star Trek?

MacFarlane: Yes! That's exactly what it's about!

Palicki: We don't want to give away too many details.

MacFarlane: Spoiler alert!

Palicki: Ha ha...

Outhouse: Alright, well can you tell us what the show is called?

Palicki: What it's called?

Outhouse: What is the show called?

MacFarlane: It doesn't have a name.

Outhouse: The show doesn't have a name?

Palicki: Yet! It doesn't have a name yet.

Outhouse: So you can't come back to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. because you're filming a show that doesn't have a name, is about "space," and is both a comedy and a drama?

Palicki: Right.

Outhouse: And this doesn't have anything to do with S.H.I.E.L.D.'s terrible ratings?

MacFarlane (clearly agitated): Are you trying to claim that Adrianne has escaped from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. like a rat fleeing a sinking ship, and that she's willing to make up a fake show, and drag me, Seth MacFarlane, into the whole lie just to avoid ending up back in what must be considered career hell for a promising young actor or actress?! That if we just say "Adrianne is working on that MacFarlane space dramedy for Fox," entertainment websites will be too concerned with looking like they have inside information about the television industry that they'll just print it without doing any kind of fact-checking to see whether or not the show actually exists?! That this whole thing is just a big fraud, and Adrianne would do or say anything to avoid going back to a show that's a spinoff of the work of Marvel Studios, where Marvel Studios is currently involved in a corporate grudge match with the division that runs the TV shows and is doing everything in its power to make the show seem as irrelevant as possible so that it is wildly unpopular when compared to the success of the movies in mainstream pop culture?! Is that what you're saying?!

Palicki: Why would you even ask us that?!

Outhouse: We didn't put it like that.

Palicki: Good! Because that's totally not what's going on here.

Outhouse: Okay then.

Palicki: Fine.

Outhouse: Fine.

MacFarlane: Fine.

Outhouse: Fine!

Palicki: Fine!


As you can see, this isn't just a flimsy excuse, and "Untitled Space Show," the comedy drama by Seth MacFarlane for Fox is a very real show that one day have a title, story, and everything.

And unlike Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., people will probably watch it.
