'Doctor Who' vet Karen Gillan joins 'NTSF:SD:SUV::'

Karen Gillan has left Doctor Who's TARDIS*, but she's not straying far from acronyms. The actress has joined the cast of "NTSF:SD:SUV::" for its third season.

The Adult Swim comedy stars Paul Scheer as Special Agent Trent Hauser. "I'm really excited to be quoted in this article," Scheer said in a statement. He also serves as executive producer.

Gillan played "Doctor Who" companion Amy Pond in the international hit that airs in the U.S. on BBC America. She joins Scheer and Kate Mulgrew, Brandon Johnson, June Diane Raphael, Rob Riggle, Martin Starr and Peter Serafinowicz in the comedy that follows the exploits of Hauser's elite counter-terrorist unit, the NTSF:SD:SUV:: (National Terrorist Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle::). Filming for Season 3 currently is underway in L.A. and London.

According to the release, in Season 3 Trent and his team will employ some of the riskiest methods they've ever attempted in order to bring down San Diegan terrorist scum, including surgically swapping faces with each other, kidnapping an alien, faking their own deaths, getting into the viral video biz, unfreezing a former 1960's radical, boarding Comic-Con Air, and heading into the dangerous British District of San Diego (which will be shot in the UK!) for a sweeping "NTSF:SD:SUV::" two-part epic. Plus, the return of THE TIME ANGELS!

"Adult Swim continues to exercise sound judgment in programming NTSF:SD:SUV:: for a third season. If this decision were on Facebook, I would click 'Like,'" said executive producer Jonathan Stern.

The new season of "NTSF:SD:SUV::" will begin sometime in July.

* TARDIS stands for Time and Relative Dimension in Space. It's the blue police box Doctor Who uses for his travels.
