There’s a lot of lovin’ to be had on Elementary in 2016.

Virginia Madsen has landed a guest-starring role as a potential love interest for Gregson, EW has learned exclusively.

The Sideways star will play Paige Cowen, a former NYPD detective involved in a budding relationship with Gregson (Aidan Quinn). Due to a scandal that forced her off the force, she’s been eager to protect Gregson by keeping their relationship under wraps.

Madsen, whose TV credits include Witches of East End and Hatfields & McCoys, will appear in an episode slated for early spring.

The news comes on the heels of Sherlock landing his own love interest, played by Nurse Jackie star Betty Gilpin. Get the scoop here.
