Rose McIver has joined the cast of Lifetime's Flowers in the Atticsequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Once Upon a Timestar will play Cathy Dollanganger, who was portrayed by Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka in the first TV film.

The best and worst TV reboots

The sequel, titled Petals on the Wind, is the second in the five-book Dollanganger series and begins — spoiler alert! — after the siblings' successful escape from Foxworth Hall. However, the Lifetime adaptation will pick up further down the road.

"It basically takes place about 10 years after the first movie ends," screenwriter Kayla Alpert told reporters last month at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. "It is a very juicy, compelling revenge drama."

As previously reported, Heather Graham and Ellen Burstyn will also reprise their roles in the sequel as Corrine Dollanganger and Olivia Foxworth, respectively.

What do you think of McIver's casting? Who should be cast as the other Dollanganger children?
