Jessica Szohr, best known for playing Vanessa Abrams on the CW's teen drama Gossip Girl, is joining the cast of Fox's sci-fi dramedy The Orville in Season 2, Deadline reports.

Details about the Orville crew member Szohr will be playing are being kept under wraps, but as TVLine observes, she'll probably further complicate Captain Ed Mercer (Seth MacFarlane) and Commander Kelly Grayson's (Adrienne Palicki) already extremely complicated relationship.

Szohr recently had a major recurring role on Season 8 of Shameless as Nessa, Fiona Gallagher's (Emmy Rossum) tenant and friend. She's also appeared on Twin Peaks and Kingdom. She's worked with The Orville creator Seth MacFarlane before, appearing in his movie Ted 2. But to some fans she'll always be Vanessa Abrams, Dan Humphrey's (Penn Badgley) hipster on-again/off-again girlfriend on Gossip Girl.

The Orville returns later this year with a bigger Season 2.

Kenan and Kel Reunited with Other All That Alums on Wild 'n Out

All That, the beloved '90s sketch comedy show for kids, staged an epic reunion on MTV2's Wild 'n Out, the sketch and improv show hosted by All That alum Nick Cannon. Former cast members Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell, Lori Beth Denberg and Josh Server reconvened to tape an episode of Wild 'n Out that will air during the show's upcoming eleventh season.

All That aired from 1994 to 2005 and launched the careers of Thompson, Mitchell, Cannon, Gabriel Iglesias, Amanda Bynes and Chappelle's Show co-creator Neal Brennan, who was a writer on the show. It lives on as a cherished memory in the minds of '90s kids.

However, part of this memory was tainted in recent years when we learned there was some post-Nickelodeon beef between Mitchell and Thompson, who co-starred on their own All That spin-off series from 1996 to 2000 as well as the cult classic Good Burger. But after one of the All That creators urged Mitchell to mend fences between the pair a few years back, Mitchell and Thompson immediately fell into their old rapport.

Knowing what they've gone through to get to here only makes this adorable All That and Kenan & Kel reunion that much sweeter. You can check more of the pics out on Mitchell's Instagram, but the best one is below.

Legends of Tomorrow Exclusive: Does Ava Have a Crush on Sara?

It looks like Sara (Caity Lotz) might be getting a new love interest in DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

In this exclusive preview of Monday's episode, Sara chats with Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) -- a high ranking agent of the Time Bureau -- about business involving Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), but Snart (Wentworth Miller) notices a different purpose for her call.

"That woman clearly has a crush on you," he teases. "She called you for absolutely no reason. It was just an excuse to talk to you." Supporting his argument, Snart replays the video from the conversation and notes that Ava is displaying "classic courtship signals."

Despite the evidence before her, Sara remains in denial of Ava's potential affections and shuts down a possible courtship between the two. "Even if it was, which it is not, we are completely different people," she says.

Differences aside, it's obvious the two share a special connection since Ava risked her job in the fall finale to rescue Sara from the dark dimension Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) transported her to. Whether or not Sara will act upon those underlying feelings remains to be seen.

Legends of Tomorrow airs Mondays at 8/7c on The CW.
