Law and Order: SVU will welcome Brooke Shields to appear on the long-running series in a mysterious new recurring role according to EW.

While little is known about what character Shields, 52, might play, the NBC described her as one “that will shake up Benson’s (Mariska Hargitay) world this season.”

“I play a very different character from any I have ever played,” the actress noted in a statement. “I’m excited to stir the SVU pot a bit.”

This isn’t the first time Shields has worked in the Law and Order family. In 2006, she guest-starred on Criminal Intent in the season 6 episode “Siren Call” as Kelly Sloane-Raines. 

Most recently, Shields has acted on popular shows like Scream Queens, Nightcap, and The Middle.

Season 19 of Law and Order: SVU premieres Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
