Chicago Justice: Lorraine Toussaint to Reprise Law & Order Role on Spinoff

Lorraine Toussaint Chicago Justice

Lorraine Toussaint is taking on the criminal justice system once again — on Chicago Justice, NBC’s next installment in its Windy City franchise.

According to THR, Toussaint will guest-star in the forthcoming backdoor pilot as defense attorney Shambala Green, a role she originated on Law & Order in 1990 and last played in 2003. Chicago Justice‘s trial run (no pun intended) will air this spring, as Episode 21 of Chicago P.D.

Toussaint, who currently co-stars on Fox’s Rosewood, joins Philip Winchester (The Player), Nazneen Contractor (Heroes Reborn), Joelle Carter (Justified) and Carl Weathers (Rocky) in the potential series. Her recent TV credits include ForeverThe Fosters and Orange Is the New Black.
