Katrina Law is heading to NCIS!

It was just announced that the former Arrow actress has been cast as a series regular for the popular CBS show’s upcoming 19th season.

Katrina actually made her NCIS debut in the final episodes of season 18 as Special Agent Jessica Knight.

The character is described as “a formidable REACT (Regional Enforcement Action Capabilities Training Team) agent who specializes in hostage negotiations and handles daily high-risk operations with skill and precision. Sharp, athletic and tough, she is fiercely tenacious and with a wry sense of humor,” according to Variety.

Gary Cole has also been added to the cast as a series regular, as longtime star of the show, Mark Harmon, is looking to step back and have a much smaller role.

“We haven’t shot a single frame quite yet, but with the addition of Gary Cole and Katrina Law to the cast, this is already shaping up to be one of the best seasons yet,” executive producer and showrunner Steven D. Binder, said in a statement. “Going into season 19, we are excited to have new characters and stories to tell that adds to and reenergizes the world we’ve come to love over the 400+ episodes.”

Katrina previously portrayed Nyssa al Ghul throughout multiple seasons of Arrow on The CW, as well as roles on Hawaii Five-0, Training Day, The Oath and Sacred Lies.
