Once Upon a Time Casts 'Warrior' Dorothy, to Battle Wicked Witch in Oz

Chicago Fire alum Teri Reeves is set to heat things up in Once Upon a Time‘s Oz.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Reeves has landed the recurring role of Kansas native Dorothy Gale, who since the last time we saw her has grown up to be a “brave warrior for good.”

Having returned home to the Heartland at the end of Season 3’s Zelena-centric “Kansas” episode (and then played by Matreya Scarrwener), Dorothy returns to Oz to save the magical city from the most wicked of witches. But to do so, she will have to forge new friendships, unlocking a strength she has never had before.

In addition to her Season 1 Chicago Fire run (as Casey’s ill-fated fiancée), Reeves’ TV credits include episodes of Castle, Scandal, NCIS and Three Rivers.

ABC’s Once Upon a Time resumes Season 5 on March 6 with Episode 12; Reeves debuts in Episode 16.
