Ashmore will play Steve Jinks, a young ATF agent with an innate ability to detect when someone’s lying. Jinks is recruited by the all-powerful Mrs. Frederic (CCH Pounder) to be Pete Lattimer’s (Eddie McClintock) new Warehouse 13 partner.
In last year’s season two finale, Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) abruptly quit her job at the Warehouse after being betrayed by HG Wells (Jaime Murray). While reports aren’t stating whether Kelly will be returning to the series or not, I think it’s safe to say she’ll be back sometime down the road.
Fans may recognize Ashmore as Jimmy Olsen on Smallville, but don’t get confused; his twin brother Shawn played Iceman in the X-Men movie franchise.
The third season of Warehouse 13 will return with 13 new episodes beginning this summer.
