In the third episode of the coming season (which bows Monday, June 9 at 9/8c), Ghanizada will play Angela Soames, an employee at a potentially shady cryogenic facility, TVLine has learned. Daly appears in the same episode, reprising his circa 2009 role on The Closer, as wannabe detective Richard “Dick” Tracy.

ER alum Paul McCrane will direct the episode.

Also during Season 3, Tom Berenger and Bill Brochtrup will be back as Capt. Raydor’s estranged husband Jack and Rusty’s therapist Dr. Joe Bowman, respectively, while Ransford Doherty and Kathe Mazur will continue to recur as Coroner’s Investigator Kendall and DDA Andrea Hobbs.

And as reported earlier this week by TVLine, Jon Tenney and Malcolm-Jamal Warner will be back as Agent Fritz Howard and Lt. Chuck Cooper, in an episode that may serve as a planted spinoff.

    My husband and I cannot wait for Major Crimes to start up, again. We really enjoy this show and thank goodness they did this spin-off from the Closer, because that had been one of our favorite shows. Now Major Crimes has become a favorite.
