The move again pairs members of The Shield ensemble — minus star Michael Chiklis — with the FX drama's creator Shawn Ryan, who now serves as Lie to Me's executive producer.
Shield actors David Marciano, Catherine Dent, Benito Martinez, Cathy Cahlin Ryan, David Rees Snell and Kenny Johnson are all signed on for a spring episode titled "Pied Piper," the trade paper reports.
According to Variety, Marciano will play a man Tim Roth's Dr. Cal Lightman helped convict for killing a child 17 years prior. However, after Marciano's character is executed for the crime, the aunt and uncle (played by Dent and Martinez) of his victim are targeted again. Lightman reopens the investigation and speaks with the brother and ex-girlfriend of Marciano's character, played by Snell and Ryan, respectively.
Finally, as the investigation is reopened, a new suspect is revealed in the form of a photographer played by Johnson. An airdate for the episode has not yet been announced.
