Former WWE RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey has joined the cast of 9-1-1 on Fox.
Deadline reports Rousey has been cast as a firefighter named Lena Bosko on the upcoming third season of the show. The character is described as “a stoic and fearless member of the Los Angeles Fire Department Station 136 who leaps into action to save lives when a disaster hits.”
For those unfamiliar, 9-1-1 is about the “lives and careers of emergency response providers who put their lives at risk to save others” and stars Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
The recently released trailer for the upcoming season centers on a tsunami engulfing Santa Monica. The announcement does not say when Rousey’s character will first appear on the series.
Season three of 9-1-1 premieres September 23 at 8pm.
