Morris, whose seven-season run as Cold Case detective Lilly Rush came to a close in 2010, will play Lydia, the SG’s Chief of Staff.

The cast also includes Disney Channel staple Katherine McNamara (as the SG’s daughter) and Leverage‘s Beth Riesgraf (as microorganisms expert Dr. Page Wyatt).

  • I’m a fan of hers but I always think something is weird with her hair.

    • I think she just has REALLY fine hair, so the styling is kind of difficult…she’d probably look great with a pixie, she has a beautiful face with very intricate features.

  • I hope Kathryn Morris comes back to TV if it gets picked up as a series for CBS. Really missed COLD CASE after it ended in 2010 and the series was created by Meredith Stiehm before she became one of the writers and producers of Showtime’s award winning series HOMELAND.

  • Yay, Lil’s coming back to TV! I watch Danny Pino on SVU, but I was hoping she’d get a show as well. With her AND Jason Isaacs, I hope the pilot gets picked up and we get a chance to check it out.

  • It would be great to have Kathryn back on TV each week, my family liked her and Cold Case very much. We were happy when Danny Pino landed on SVU too.

  • I use to love Cold Case until she got her lips done. She was too hard to look at.

  • I really like CBS loyalty to their leading ladies,
    First with Poppy Montgomery and now with Kathryn, I’ll still be able to see my favourites! (please pick this up!)

    • CBS’s loyalty to their leading ladies? Please. While I’m pleased as punch that Poppy and Kathryn are being given new chances to shine, let us not so soon forget the whole Criminal Minds fiasco of three seasons back. The almighty dollar always comes first.

      • That was a horrible fiasco. At least they listened to the fans though.

  • She did one of those silly movies on Hallmark. Typically ridiculous, but it was fun to see her in a comedy.
