Madam Secretary Season 3: Tim Daly Injured; Script in Trouble

There seems to be last minute trouble in the writing room for Madam Secretary Season 3. Tim Daly’s role in the drama series may have to undergo changes. Daly injured his legs in a skiing accident. Due to his absence, writers may need to think of alternate ways to incorporate the new developments.

Tim Daly got injured and broke both his legs while skiing in Sundance. He will have to undergo surgery and need six to eight weeks for recovery. The writers are apparently looking for ways to maintain the continuity of the show in his absence.

Madam Secretary Season 3: Alternate Options for Daly

Madam Secretary Season 3 may see the presence of Tim Daly, or would it not? The writers are toying with the idea of incorporating his injury on the show. Another option could be working around his absence. Daly plays the role of Henry McCord, who is the husband of the Secretary of State (Elizabeth McCord).

The production schedule for season 3 has already begun. The good news in all of this is that the production is in the advanced stage. So each episode of the show will have Tim in it. According to Variety, the show is far along in shooting and it wouldn’t have to adjust much to accommodate Daly’s injury.

Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 13

Season 3 will return to screens on Jan. 29, 2017 on CBS. The show returns with episode 13. The upcoming episode is titled “The Beautiful Game”.

The synopsis of the episode reads, “When an influential rabbi organizing a symbolic Iran/Israel soccer game is killed, Elizabeth and Jay’s peace treaty plans for the two countries are jeopardized. Also, Elizabeth’s name is floated for a Nobel Peace Prize; Jay’s tireless work on the Iran/Israel peace deal strains his marriage; and Daisy makes a connection with new work colleague, Kevin Park (Justin Baldoni).”

So brace yourselves to see Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) in the running for a Nobel Prize and Jay Whitman (Sebastian Arcelus) trying to manage his work and marital life. Fans can also expect seeing Henry McCord (Tim Daly) in most of the episodes despite his injury. Here’s wishing him a speedy recovery.
