Rutina Wesley has landed a recurring role on the upcoming season of Arrow — and EW can reveal exactly who she’s playing.

The True Blood alum will portray Liza Warner, otherwise known in the DC Comics universe as Lady Cop. However, Arrow’s spin on the character is said to be surprisingly different as she will be a member of the anti-vigilante task force.

Wesley joins other previously announced season 4 additions, including Neal McDonough (as Damien Darhk), Alexander Calvert (as Anarky), Echo Kellum (as Mr. Terrific), Jimmy Akingbola (as Baron Reiter), Jeri Ryan (as Jessica Danforth), Parker Young (as Alex Davis) and Elysia Rotaru (as a love interest for Oliver in the flashbacks).

Arrow will return Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
