Breaking Bad's Anna Gunn is joining NBC's Shades of Blue for Season 2, has learned.

Gunn has landed the recurring role of a former police officer who was a member of Harlee's (Jennifer Lopez) group of dirty cops and was once a protégée of Wozniak (Ray Liotta). After rising up through the ranks of the NYPD, she launched a political career and is now a city councilwoman who has her sights set on the mayor's office.

"As the season progresses, the details of her meteoric rise and her much darker and Machiavellian side comes to the fore," according to NBC.
