Syfy programs are continuing to enlist the help of the genre’s aging heroes as Warehouse 13 has tapped Star Trek: Next Generation’s Brent Spinder for a guest spot on the show’s upcoming fourth season. Character details lie within the press release that follows.
NEW YORK – June 14, 2012 – Brent Spiner (Star Trek: Next Generation) will guest star on Syfy’s Warehouse 13 as Brother Adrian, leader of an intensely secretive sect, when the hit series returns for a fourth season Monday, July 23 at 9PM (ET/PT).
Brother Adrian’s sect, The Brotherhood of the Knights of the Black Diamond, is descended from the Knights Templar, loosely connected and protected by the Vatican. Like Warehouse 13, The Brotherhood’s charge is to protect various powerful artifacts from history. However, they follow no rules and will do whatever they must to fulfill their duty.
Spiner joins Sam Huntington (Being Human), who plays jazz musician “Ethan,” as an upcoming guest star.
Warehouse 13 will anchor Syfy’s “Powerful Mondays” programming block this summer, followed by the second season return of Alphas at 10PM.
After the powerful, two-hour season three finale, the Warehouse team struggles with the horrible reality of the Warehouse’s destruction and the tragic loss of Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore), Mrs. Frederic (CCH Pounder) and H.G. Wells (Jaime Murray). With matters so desperate, Pete (Eddie McClintock), Myka (Joanne Kelly), Artie (Saul Rubinek) and Claudia (Allison Scagliotti) must decide whether to knowingly use a dangerous artifact for their own personal gain – at the risk of deadly consequences.
Last year Warehouse 13 averaged 3.3 million total viewers and a series record 1.6 million Adults 18-49, based on Live +7 data.
The most watched series in Syfy history, Warehouse 13 follows a team of government agents who work at a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and preternatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The Warehouse’s caretaker Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek) charges Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock), Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) and Claudia Donovan (Allison Scagliotti) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him to control the Warehouse itself. At the end of last season, the Warehouse was shockingly destroyed. What’s next for the surviving members of the Warehouse 13 team?
Warehouse 13 is produced for Syfy by Universal Cable Productions. Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel) is executive producer and showrunner.
