Monk is checking into Nurse Jackie. Tony Shalhoub has landed a recurring role on the Showtime drama’s upcoming seventh season, the network announced Wednesday.

The Emmy winner will play Dr. Bernard Prince, a new ER doctor who has great bedside manner, a special touch with Akalitus, and offers Jackie friendship—something she desperately needs after the drama of the season finale.

Nurse Jackie is expected to return in 2015.
