Bates Motel Brooke Smith

Bates Motel Elects Grey's Anatomy Alum Brooke Smith (New) Sheriff

There’s a new sheriff in town on Bates Motel — and that’s not just an expression!

TVLine has learned exclusively that Grey’s Anatomy grad Brooke Smith is joining the A&E thriller’s fifth and final season as Sheriff Dana Green, the new face of the law in White Pine Bay. She succeeds the now-incarcerated Alex Romero (played by Nestor Carbonell, who will nonetheless be returning as a series regular.)

Smith’s Dana is described as competent, professional, moralistic and sharp. She possesses a small-town vibe that belies her highly observant nature.

Since being unceremoniously banished to Grey’s Anatomy‘s black hole of a parking garage in Season 5, Smith has appeared on Law & Order: SVU, Ray Donovan and Nashville.

Bates Motel‘s 10-episode, Psycho-drenched farewell season is slated to bow in 2017.
