According to TVLine, Torres is headed to the ABC drama as Samantha Foster, a "ruthless fashion mogul." On "Firefly," Torres played second-in-command to Fillion's Captain Mal Reynolds, and the reunion will likely be a treat for fans, since Torres wasn't on hand when the "Firefly" cast celebrated its 10th anniversary at Comic-Con this summer.
