Rizzoli & Isles alum Sasha Alexander has landed major multi-episode arc on Shameless’ upcoming fifth season, EW reports.
Alexander’s new gig calls into question the future of Rizzoli & Isles, which has yet to be renewed for a sixth season at TNT.
Of course, a guest-starring role doesn’t necessarily mean Rizzoli & Isles has been secretly cancelled, as the cable filming schedule means Alexander could potentially juggle both roles, especially as her Shameless arc begins filming next week.
Still, inevitable concerns will be raised until Rizzoli & Isles is renewed for that coveted sixth season. Stay tuned.
