The fourth world in Dick Wolf’s #OneChicago-verse, Chicago Justice, has added Monica Barbarao aka UnREAL‘s Yael/”Hot Rachel” as a series regular.
RELATEDChicago P.D. Adds Quantico Alum as [Spoiler]’s New Partner
Premiering at midseason, Chicago Justice follows the State’s Attorney’s dedicated team of prosecutors and investigators as they navigate heated city politics and controversy head-on while fearlessly pursuing justice.
Per our sister site Deadline, Barbara will play a whip-smart, quick-tongued Assistant State’s Attorney who can — wait for it — “drink beers with the boys or take a night out at the opera.”
The Chicago P.D. offshoot’s cast also includes Philip Winchester (Strike Back), Carl Weathers (Colony), Joelle Carter (Justified) and Ryan-James Hatanaka, while Law & Order vet Michael S. Chernuchin will serve as showrunner. (Nazneen Contractor, who played a different ASA in the backdoor pilot, is not continuing with the series.)
In addition to her UnREAL run, Barbaro’s TV credits include episodes of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Hawaii Five-0 and Stitchers.
One of Chicago Med‘s single docs is about to lose his most-eligible status.
Mekia Cox (90210, Undercovers) will recur on Season 2 of the NBC medical drama as Robin, Dr. Charles’ (Oliver Platt) daughter — and a love interest for Colin Donnell’s Dr. Connor Rhodes, TVLine has learned.
Robin is an epidemiologist who is brought in to assess a difficult case, which will further complicate her already strained relationship with her father. She makes her debut in Episode 4, “but the romance [with Connor] doesn’t start” until a later installment, executive producer Andrew Schneider tells TVLine.
“They do start working as colleagues,” EP Diane Frolov adds. “[Robin is] very smart and wry and rebellious. She’s sparky.”
Cox — who can also be seen in the upcoming season of ABC’s Secrets and Lies — had guest arcs on Impastor, Gotham, Key and Peele and Almost Human.
Chicago Med returns Thursday, Sept. 22 at 9/8c on NBC.
How do you top a playboy like Chicago Fire‘s Severide? Give him a new friend who’s possibly even more wild!

Elrod’s character is drop-dead gorgeous, with a million Instagram followers to boot. He and Severide cross paths on a fire call, after which the rescue squad lieutenant is tempted to join Brenner’s fast-paced inner circle.
In addition to his Grey’s role as Dr. William Thorpe, Elrod’s TV credits include The Young and the Restless and Men in Trees.
