NEW YORK – July 13, 2011 – Faran Tahir (Star Trek, Iron Man, NCIS: Los Angeles) returns to Syfy’s hit series Warehouse 13 as one of the mysterious and powerful Regents – the shadowy governing body charged with keeping the Warehouse safe – on Monday, July 18, at 9PM (ET/PT).

Tahir guest stars as Regent Adwin Kosan, continuing in his role as the Regent who makes the final decision regarding Warehouse agents.  In Monday’s episode, “Trials,” Kosan must determine whether or not Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) is fit to return to active duty.

The most successful series in Syfy’s 18-year history, Warehouse 13 follows a team of government agents who work at a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and preternatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The Warehouse’s caretaker Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek) charges Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock), Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly), young apprentice Claudia Donovan (Allison Scagliotti) and newcomer Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him to control the Warehouse itself. CCH Pounder plays the Warehouse's mysterious caretaker, Mrs. Frederic.

Warehouse 13 is produced for Syfy by Universal Cable Productions. Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel) is executive producer and showrunner.

Warehouse 13 received its first ever Emmy nomination in 2010 with a nod for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music by composer Ed Rogers.
