Sharon Leal — who last season recurred on the aforementioned CW program as White Martian M’gann — has booked a series-regular role on CBS’ midseason drama Instinct, it was announced Thursday.
Instinct follows Dr. Dylan Reinhart (The Good Wife‘s Alan Cumming), a former CIA operative who has since built a “normal” life as a gifted professor and writer. He is lured back into his old life when tenacious NYPD detective Lizzie Needham (Shameless‘ Bojana Novakovic) needs his help to stop a serial killer.
Leal will portray Lizzie’s friend, who has recently been promoted to their boss at the NYPD. She replaces Khandi Alexander (CSI: Miami), who played a different iteration of the character in the pilot.
