TVLine Items: Night Shift Finale Staffs Up, MythBusters Return Date and More

Night Shift Season 4 Lefevre Peregrym

Two familiar faces will soon be checking into The Night Shift.

Under the Dome heroine Rachelle Lefevre and Rookie Blue alum Missy Peregrym have been cast in the Season 4 finale in potentially substantial roles, THR.com reports.

Lefevre will play military doctor Major Natasha Anthony, while Peregrym will portray Reagan, a paramedic who clashes with Drew. Both roles have the potential to recur if the medical drama is renewed for Season 5.

Peregrym recently booked a series regular role in Season 2 of Syfy’s Van Helsing, while ABC in May passed on Lefevre’s Doomsday pilot.

The Night Shift finale is set air on Thursday, Aug. 31 at 10/9c on NBC
