Eddie Cibrian Rosewood

Eddie Cibrian to the rescue!

Fox’s Rosewood has tapped the Third Watch/CSI: Miami to take over the new Season 2 series regular role abruptly vacated by Brian Austin Green, TVLine has learned exclusively.

As we reported, Green left the Fox drama in the middle of shooting his first episode, aka the Season 2 premiere.

Cibrian assumes the role of Aaron Slade, East Miami Police’s enigmatic newest member who will both challenge and complicate an already messy situation between Rosewood  (Morris Chestnut) and Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz). He doesn’t trust anyone and hates the idea of partnerships and teams – which will keep Rosewood  and Villa on their toes as they go to great lengths to figure him out.

As the team begins to investigate and uncover the real Aaron Slade, the twosome learn of his storied past.

Cibrian is coming off of a recurring gig on Freeform’s Baby Daddy.

Rosewood returns with Season 2 on Thursday, Sept. 22 at 8/7c.
