Jeffrey Dean Morgan has joined the cast of Extant as a new series regular for season 2, EW has learned.

The Grey’s Anatomy and Magic City alum will play J.D. Richter, a roguish womanizer and a cop of the future who is a mercenary/bounty hunter. He is free-wheeling, hard-drinking and fearless, bordering on reckless, mostly because he’s got nothing to lose. He is the everyman who thought he had seen everything until Molly Woods (Halle Berry) enters his life.

Extant is expected to return in the summer.
