The Night Shift will return to NBC with its third season later this spring, and there is new casting news for the series. Jennifer Beals is joining the cast of the medical drama that stars Brendan Fehr and Scott Wolf.
Beals recently appeared on TNT series Proof, but that series was cancelled after just one season. Beals will have a recurring role on the series, and she will first appear in the season three premiere.
Deadline shared the following details about her role:
“Beals will play Doctor Syd Jennings, a Major in the Army. She has worked with the Culture Support Teams (CST) in conjunction with Ranger and Special Forces units in addition to her medical duties. Jennings (Beals) is introduced in the Season 3 premiere in Afghanistan, where she is nearing the end of her six-month tour with Dr. Drew Alister (Brendan Fehr).”
No premiere date for the third season of The Night Shift has been set yet, but season two premiered last February. The series follows the lives of doctors working the night shift at the San Antonio Medical Center.
