SCORPION’s second season kicks off on Monday, September 21st, and though on-screen the team has been fractured — with Cabe tasked with other work, and Walter recovering from his post-accident injuries — off-screen, the writers/producers have found their groove.

“Season 1 is always about the show finding its rhythm on a production level, how the cast will function together, how the characters will function,” SCORPION executive producer Alex Kurtzman acknowledged. “Season 1 was about a group of misfits that had been openly rejected by most of their own families, and came together to form their own surrogate family. So now they’ve become a family.”

But where does that family go next? I had the chance to screen the (very fun) season premiere, “Satellite of Love” and have a few teases…

As SCORPION’s first season unfolded, Toby and Happy’s fantastic friendship/flirtation was a pleasant highlight. And as fans connected to the pairing throughout the year, they weren’t the only ones who realized something special was going on.

“It’s really fun that we get invested in these characters,”  Eddie Kaye Thomas (Toby) told reporters in the video below. “It’s a very insulated world when we’re shooting. We work really hard, we work really long days. And then through social media, through being out in the world, you get to see people are invested. It gives me goosebumps: the fact that we do all this work, that people see it, and we get to entertain people…it’s a really cool thing.”

SCORPION: Kevin Weisman Joins Season 2

Kevin Weisman (ALIAS, HELLO LADIES) has landed a recurring role on SCORPION.

“We are so excited to have Kevin join SCORPION this season,” SCORPION executive producer Nick Santora said in a statement. “As Ray, Walter’s new buddy from community service, Kevin is going to bring a completely different viewpoint to Walter’s life – he’s not a genius – in fact he probably has below average intelligence. He’s odd and a bit ‘off’ but for some reason, Walter learns to like the guy and we get to see Walter O’Brien make a non-genius friend outside of Scorpion. But Ray’s unique approach to life is something Walter and the gang have to adjust to, and that won’t always be that easy to do.”

The role is a reunion of sorts for Weisman and SCORPION producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci — the trio worked together from 2001-2004 on ALIAS.

Weisman broke his casting by posting an on-set photo on Instagram.

Weisman isn’t the only new face joining SCORPION’s upcoming second season: Alana De La Garza was previously announced in the recurring role of the new head of Homeland Security, and rockstar Gene Simmons will guest star in the season premiere.

SCORPION returns Monday, September 21st at 9 PM.

SCORPION’s Walter and Paige will be taking some big steps in the show’s sophomore season.

“I think that the one thing we’re trying to acknowledge [is] we had a lot of tease last year [with that Walter/Paige relationship], and what we’d like to do is acknowledge the gorilla in the room and then see how it complicates their lives,” SCORPION producer Nicholas Wootton shared earlier this summer. “I think to say they were going to have a perfect, loving relationship that is going to last [starting immediately], that’s not going to happen. I think given his level of emotional maturity, even the concept of admitting, ‘I even like you’ is a long jump for him. But I think we both know how they feel, let’s admit how they feel, and see how it reverberates though the team.”

And based on what SCORPION stars Katharine McPhee (Paige) and Elyes Gabel (Walter) shared at Comic-Con, fans won’t have to wait long to see progress.

“I think you can expect Paige and Walter to have…a conversation about [their relationship],” McPhee said in the video below. “I think people will be surprised by the first episode. When I was reading the first episode,  I was surprised.”

“Something nice happens in the episode,” Gabel added.

SCORPION Producers Tease Walter/Paige’s Evolution, Juxtaposing Action with Emotion in Season 2

As SCORPION’s Walter found his life in danger at the end of the first season, he set about saying goodbye — in his own way — to the people he cared most about. But he was distraught when he thought Paige — who was set to leave town — was MIA, and he wouldn’t get to tell her the truth of how he felt about her.

Thankfully, Walter survived. And after Paige rushed to his side once she found out what was going on, she gave a kiss to her unconscious friend.

“I think [Walter’s] emotional changes are going to be the drive of the whole series,” SCORPION executive producer Heather Kadin shared. “That’s obviously the purpose of Paige and her character: to teach the world to him, while he translates the world for her son. The more we can hold on to that emotional core, the more relatable the show is. Because you’re rooting for him to be a little more human each day.
