Chicago Med is admitting a familiar face for season two.
Oz alum Betty Buckley is set to appear in an upcoming episode of the NBC medical drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The actress will play Olga Barlow, an elderly patient whose desire to keep up with appearances has an adverse effect on her health. Buckley joins previously announced season-two guest-stars Ato Essandoh (Garden State) and Mekia Cox (90210).
Buckley, who won a Tony Award for her performance in Cats, is also known for her roles in Carrie, Eight Is Enough and, most recently, Pretty Little Liars. She also recurred on another Dick Wolf-produced series, Law & Order: SVU. She is repped by Stewart Talent and Parseghian Planco.
Chicago Med returns for season two on Thursday, Sept. 22, at 9 p.m. on NBC.
