Nielsen joins previously announced guest-star Taye Diggs, who will recur as Dean Levine-Wilkins, a partner at Lockhart/Gardner who decides to join Diane in her move to Florrick/Agos. True Blood’s Carrie Preston will also reprise her Emmy-winning role as Elsbeth Tascioni.
Nielsen is no stranger to (fictional) Chicago politics. Prior to appearing on The Following, she portrayed the wife of the Mayor of Chicago on Boss.
