While we love our weekly dose of Castle, ABC’s hit crime procedural doesn’t quite have the thrill factor that FOX’s 24 had in its heyday. To be fair, the Kiefer Sutherland-helmed drama was sorely lacking in romantic moments (and we certainly have those on Castle) so we’ll just go ahead and declare equal amounts of love for both shows.

Luckily, Castle will soon have a bit of 24 headed towards it in the form of actress Annie Wersching! TVLine reports that 24’s Agent Renee Walker (may she rest in peace) is set to head to the Big Apple, where she will play “Dr. Kelly Nieman, an elite cosmetic surgeon who draws the interest of the NYPD detectives because of her connection to a murder victim.”

We certainly hope Annie isn’t playing a murderer this time around, but with Castle one can never be too sure!

Since leaving CTU, Annie has kept busy, booking television roles on a variety of shows such as NCIS, Rizzoli & Isles, and Dallas.

Are you happy  to hear that the 24 alum will be guest-starring on Castle later this season? Share your thoughts below!

Castle Season 6 airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
