Andre Braugher and Kyra Sedgwick

The Closer vet Kyra Sedgwick returns to the force in an arresting guest stint beginning Oct. 5. Sedgwick will appear in two episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine as Deputy Chief Madeline Wuntch, who shares an acrimonious history with Captain Holt (Andre Braugher).

"Kyra brings so much presence and gravitas to the role — exactly the traits needed to stand off against Andre Braugher," says executive producer Dan Goor. "And she pitched one of the funniest flashbacks that we've ever done!"

The Season 2 premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs Sunday, Sept. 28, 8:30/7:30c, on Fox.
