ABC's The Fix & Grey's Anatomy; and CBS' Bull.

  • MacKenzie Meehan has been cast in a recurring role on the drama's upcoming third season. She previously recurred on HBO's Vinyl.
  • She will play Taylor, the newest member of the Trial Analysis Corporation team. She is a former colleague of Marissa's (Geneva Carr) from her time at the Department of Homeland Security. Her expertise lies in coding and hacking. A single mother, she is not a Jason Bull (Michael Weatherly) acolyte and views her job with TAC as just that - a job. As such, she's unapologetic about expecting to be able to leave at a set time and have weekends free.
  • Jeff Perry is set to reprise his role as Thatcher Grey, Meredith's (Ellen Pompeo) father, in the drama's fifteenth season. He began recurring on the long-running drama during its second season. However, the character hasn't been seen since the seventh season. Since then, Perry starred for seven seasons in ABC's Scandal and next recurs in CBS All Access' upcoming drama One Dollar.
  • No additional details were announced about the character's return or how many episodes he will appear in.
  • Abraham Lim has booked a recurring role on the upcoming drama starring Robin Tunney. He starred in the second season of Oxygen's The Glee Project. He has also recurred on FOX's Grandfathered, FX's Better Things and ABC's The Catch.
  • He will play Ares, a smart, slick, high-end media consultant who is brought in by Ezra (Scott Cohen) to consult on the upcoming trial. The role was played by Alysia Reiner in the original pilot, but was completely re-conceived.
