We're always sorry to see a Summer Glau TV show end: Angel, Firefly, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, even Dollhouse. So it's nice there's always another one around the bend: The super-hot, ass-kicking Glau is set to star in NBC's upcoming superhero pilot The Cape.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news:

In the pilot, directed by Simon West, a former cop (David Lyons) is set up as a criminal and becomes a masked hero, the Cape, to clear his name.

Glau will play Orwell, a cute and intrepid investigative blogger who fearlessly goes after corrupt cops and costumed bad guys.

For those of us accustomed to Glau kicking butt and taking names, we're assured there'll be plenty of that as well.

Say it with us: We knew she'd be back!
