Sarah Shahi is not staying away from the small screen for too long.
The popular actress has landed a recurring role on ABC's The Rookie, reports TV Line.
Shahi will play Jessica Russo, a "smart and intense rock star FBI agent" who has "a subversive sense of humor."
Sarah most recently fronted Reverie on NBC, but the drama was canceled a few months back after a low-rated freshman run.
The Rookie has been a moderate performer for ABC since its debut in October. It launched with a 1.0 rating in the demo but logged a series low 0.6 rating for its midseason premiere earlier this week.
Despite the soft ratings, ABC is keeping the series around for the duration of the season. The network ordered seven additional episodes, bringing The Rookie Season 1 to 20 episodes.
Still, the series is a marginal improvement in the demo over what Kevin (Probably) Saves the World was doing last season.
Nathan Fillion who fronts the series is also a well-liked star at ABC. Whether the network will keep the series around for the 2019-2020 season is another story.
Being the second lowest-rated drama on the network is not a good measure of success, but its future will likely hinge on how its midseason dramas perform.
Looking ahead, The Rookie Season 1 Episode 10 will air Tuesday at 10/9c.
