Lisseth Chavez is sticking with THE ROOKIE—the actress has been promoted to series regular for the upcoming sixth season, Give Me My Remote has learned.

Chavez joined the series in season 5, playing Officer Celina Juarez, Nolan’s (Nathan Fillion) new rookie.

“We purposely tried to create a character that would be a challenge for Nolan, not necessarily [in] an expected way, but in a fun way,” THE ROOKIE creator Alexi Hawley shared with Give Me My Remote prior to Celina’s debut. “To sort of keep him on his heels, a little bit…the way she operates and the way she sees the world—[it] is just a little bit unique to our show, which is great. I’ve always said that we’re a character show masquerading as a cop show. And so that’s the first goal: how do we create a dynamic character who is a way to amplify Nolan and also stand on her own?”

It’s a big year for THE ROOKIE, which will celebrate its 100th episode shortly after the show returns; the cast and crew recently commemorated the milestone on set. (The season 6 premiere—which airs Tuesday, February 20 at 9/8c—is episode 99.)

THE ROOKIE also stars Mekia Cox as Nyla Harper, Alyssa Diaz as Angela Lopez, Richard T. Jones as Sergeant Wade Grey, Melissa O’Neil as Lucy Chen, Eric Winter as Tim Bradford, Jenna Dewan as Bailey Nune, Shawn Ashmore as Wesley Evers, and Tru Valentino as Aaron Thorsen.

Chavez previously appeared on The CW’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and NBC’s CHICAGO P.D.
