Tahir will appear in at least two episodes of the Syfy hit’s upcoming season as Adwin Kosan, one of the mysterious and powerful Regents tasked with keeping the Warehouse safe. Adwin, who arrives to handle an escalating crisis, makes a shocking pronouncement that threatens to tear apart the team.

Tahir joins a season 2 guest star roster that also includes Bionic Woman Lindsay Wagner, Firefly‘s Sean Maher, Eureka‘s Neil Graystone, Boston Legal‘s Rene Auberjonois, and Defying Gravity‘s Paula Garces.

Warehouse‘s second season premieres on July 6.
