On the heels of news that original lizard queen Jane Badler is joining the ABC reboot as Anna’s mother comes word (exclusively!) that Reaper‘s Bret Harrison has landed a pivotal recurring role as well.

According to a V insider, Harrison will play Dr. Sidney Miller, an evolutionary biologist who may have the scoop on what caused the sky to turn red in the finale.

Harrison’s character first shows up in the season 2 premiere (slated for November) when Erica (Elizabeth Mitchell) appears on his doorstep looking for answers.
