“[Being Erica] was a great show, created by one of my dear friends [Jana Sinyor],” Rookie Blue executive producer Tassie Cameron tells TVLine. “I’ve always been looking for a chance to get [Karpluk] on our show, and we finally did. So that’s very exciting.”

Cameron was mum on details about Karpluk’s character, who recurs in the second half of the supersized Season 5, making her debut in Episode 11. (ABC and Global will both air only the first 11 episodes of the drama’s 22-episode order this summer.)
