The Astronaut Wives Club just got a lot hotter thanks to the addition of Chuck and Dexter alum Yvonne Strahovski.
The actress will join the upcoming ABC series’ cast, HitFix.com reports, giving her the chance to once more work with Chuck co-creator (and Astronaut co-executive producer) Josh Schwartz.
The new drama follows a group of women who support their star-bound husbands during the 1960s space race. The action follows Lily Koppel’s 2013 bestseller, which chronicles the lives of the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo mission crews’ spouses.
Strahovski’s Rene Carpenter is the wife of Mercury astronaut Scott Carpenter, a modern woman whose passion for issues like civil rights will cause conflict with some of the other wives.
In this show we're going to have a mini Dexter reunion as Desmond Harrington has already joined the ABC pilot.
