“I’m overjoyed to be joining such a talented cast and extremely grateful to be part of the CW family,” the actress tells TVLine of her status bump.

Black has recurred on the CW charmer since early Season 1.

As Dixie creator Leila Gerstein explains it, promoting Black for the upcoming run was a no-brainer. “Kaitlyn started off with one line, and we fell in love with her,” the showrunner gushes. “Her part has grown and grown as the writing staff has become more enraptured with Annabeth (and Kaitlyn). And, at this point, she has become so integral to the series — as Lemon’s best friend, as Lavon’s girlfriend, and as Zoe’s confidante — that we needed to make sure she was all ours!”

But prepare yourselves, Dixie fans: This full-time Annabeth comes with some major alterations. “She’s becoming a lesbian, a vampire and a murderer,” Gerstein jokes. “And she may start her own jam business. Some of these may be true. You have to watch to see.”

Dixie returns for Season 3 on Monday, Oct. 7 at 8/7c.
