LOS ANGELES, Jan. 8, 2016 (UPI) — Summer Glau will guest star on “Castle” Season 8.

TV Line reports the 34-year-old actress will play Kendall Frost, a provocative private detective, on Episode 14. The character will compete with Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) to solve a case.

Glau and Fillion co-starred as Malcolm Reynolds and River Tam on Fox series “Firefly” and the feature film “Serenity.” The pair previously reunited for Episodes 1 and 7 of the actor’s web series “Con Man” with fellow co-star Alan Tudyk.

“Firefly” ran for just one season, but maintains a following among fans. The sci-fi series, which follows the exploits of the Serenity spaceship crew, was created by Joss Whedon, and former stars Adam Baldwin and Gina Torres have also appeared on “Castle.”

“Castle” will return from mid-season break Feb. 1. The crime drama follows Castle, a best-selling mystery novel author, as he helps detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) solve cases. Fillion and Katic won Favorite TV Crime Drama Actor and Actress at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday.

Glau has starred on a number of series since “Firefly,” including Whedon show “Dollhouse,” “Alphas” and “Arrow.” She last played Anna Brandt on the Crackle series “Sequestered,” which co-starred Jesse Bradford.
