TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles is turning 100, and one half of TV’s preeminent female crimesolving duo attended the party.
After weeks of speculation, it was confirmed at the Episode 100 Celebration that the two-time Emmy-winning Cagney & Lacey alum will guest-star on the milestone episode of the TNT procedural. While there are no details available on Gless’ character, she appears to be in a prison jumpsuit in photos that circulated on social media. And we do know Jane (Angie Harmon) is set to go undercover at a county jail in the episode titled “2M7258-100.”
The 100th episode will air Monday, July 25 at 9/8c, as part of Rizzoli & Isles’ seventh and final season.
