BBC America’s Copper is gearing up for the summer premiere of its second season, and that means casting announcements. The cable network announced Thursday that Alfre Woodard, winner of four Primetime Emmys, will appear in the period crime drama’s second season.

Woodward has a five-episode arc in season 2, beginning on July 28, BBC America tells EW. The network describes her character, Hattie Lemaster, as “a former slave who has recently arrived to the Five Points to start anew. Jarred by raucous city life, Hattie must reconcile her past against hope for a future.”
