A popular character from season four of 24 is joining Fox’s new thriller The Mob Doctor.

Shohreh Aghdashloo — who played Dina Araz on 24 before going on to star in other TV series like ER, FlashForward and House M.D. — will recur as Dr. Jayana Baylor in the new drama that bows Sept. 17. She’ll debut during the fourth week of the show that stars Jordana Spiro as a young surgeon working to pay off her debt to the Chicago Mob.

Here is Aghdashloo’s official character description: “A legendary cardiothoracic specialist, Dr. Baylor returns from an Oxford sabbatical to Roosevelt Medical Center in order to perform a groundbreaking cardiac autotransplantation. Coming up through a chauvinistic hospital system, Dr. Baylor has learned to walk quietly but carry a big stick. Beautiful and sharp-witted, Baylor is a passionate surgeon who’s allergic to BS. To the novice, this refusal to suffer fools can appear hard-hearted, but to the people who know her, she simply wants to put fairness and her patients first.”

Here’s the trailer for The Mob Doctor:
