On Tuesday, TVLine has learned that Mekia Cox (Undercovers) will have a recurring role in Season 2 on the hit NBC medical drama as Robin, Dr. Charles' (Oliver Platt) and not to mention a love interest for Colin Donnell's Dr. Connor Rhodes.
It's been said that Robin is an epidemiologist who is brought in to assess a diffcult 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 later installment, executive producer Andrew Schneider told TVLine.
"They do start working as colleagues," EP Diane Frolov said. "(Robin is) very smart and wry and rebellious. She's sparky."
Cox has been on other shows from Gotham, Key and Peele and not to mention Almost Human.
You can catch the season premiere of Chicago Med Thursday, Sept. 22 at 9/8c on NBC.
