Geoff Stults has landed a multi-episode arc on CBS’ new summer series Zoo, EW has learned exclusively.

The drama, based on James Patterson’s bestselling book, stars James Wolk as a young renegade biologist who is thrust into a race to unlock the mystery of why animals are suddenly and violently attacking humans before there’s no place left for people to hide.

Enlisted alum Stults will play Agent Ben Shafer, a rogue FBI agent who is investigating the wave of bizarre animal attacks,  but whose methods and motivation complicate things greatly for our heroes.

The series, which also stars Kristen Connolly, Billy Burke, Nonso Anozie, and Nora Arnezeder, will debut Tuesday, June 30, at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
