One of Chicago Med‘s single docs is about to lose his most-eligible status.
Mekia Cox (90210, Undercovers) will recur on Season 2 of the NBC medical drama as Robin, Dr. Charles’ (Oliver Platt) daughter — and a love interest for Colin Donnell’s Dr. Connor Rhodes, TVLine has learned.
Robin is an epidemiologist who is brought in to assess a difficult case, which will further complicate her already strained relationship with her father. She makes her debut in Episode 4, “but the romance [with Connor] doesn’t start” until a later installment, executive producer Andrew Schneider tells TVLine.
“They do start working as colleagues,” EP Diane Frolov adds. “[Robin is] very smart and wry and rebellious. She’s sparky.”
Cox — who can also be seen in the upcoming season of ABC’s Secrets and Lies — had guest arcs on Impastor, Gotham, Key and Peele and Almost Human.
Chicago Med returns Thursday, Sept. 22 at 9/8c on NBC.
