CHICAGOSummer Glau (“Firefly,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) is reuniting with Joss Whedon for the second season of “Dollhouse” this fall as she joins the cast in a recurring role. The actress previously worked with Whedon on the TV series “Firefly”. During this year’s ComicCon, Whedon expressed intense interest in having Glau join the series.

Dollverse first broke the news that Glau will appear in a multi-episode arc later this season. Glau will play Bennett: a Dollhouse employee who shares a past with Echo (Eliza Dushku).

The exact specifics on when Glau will first appear haven’t been formalized, but according to Dollverse and Spoiler TV, it will be episode five, which airs in October.

Glau was recently on Fox’s “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” which only lasted two seasons. The series was cancelled in May 2009 after a large decrease in ratings.

According to Live Feed, Glau isn’t the only addition to the “Dollhouse” cast. Whedon has a few familiar faces that will be visiting the show this season. Expect to see Jamie Bamber (“Battlestar Galactica”) as a charismatic businessman who is Echo’s new husband. Michael Hogan (“Battlestar Galactica”) comes to Dollhouse wanting to stop a family member’s killing spree. Alexis Denisof (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”) is a U.S. senator leading a witch hunt and trying to track down the underground organization. Keith Carradine (“Dexter”) is an enemy of Dollhouse leader Adelle.
