As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Sedgwick will appear in two episodes as Deputy Chief Madeline Wuntch, a longtime foil of Emmy nominee Andre Braugher’s Captain Holt. As part of a precincts-wide evaluation, Wuncth aims to take down the 9-9.
The role marks Sedgwick’s first on-camera TV role since closing shop at The Closer in 2012. She currently exec-produces TNT’s Proof, starring Jennifer Beals and debuting next year.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine opens its sophomore run on Sept. 28, now airing Sundays at 8:30/7:30c. Sedgwick first appears in Episode 2.
