The actress, who last season dropped by then-CBS drama Supergirl as FBI agent Cameron Chase, will appear in an early Season 1 episode as Lauren, a warm, sympathetic single mom who spent the last nine years raising her young daughter alone and in hiding after her husband (Cougar Town‘s Brian Van Holt) went to jail for killing a man in self defense. When a natural disaster forces Lauren out into the open, her hubby must break out of prison in order to save their lives.

Caulfield is coming off a recurring stint on Once Upon a Time, where she appeared in seven episodes as the Blind Witch.

Training Day picks up 15 years after the events of the 2001 Denzel Washington-Ethan Hawke film and centers on about an idealistic young police officer (Chicago P.D.‘s Justin Cornwell) who is appointed to an elite squad of the LAPD where he is partnered with a seasoned, morally ambiguous detective (Big Love‘s Bill Paxton).
