Deadline first reported that Taylor will star with Christopher Meloni and Dylan McDermott on the show. News of McDermott's casting broke last week.

Taylor confirmed her casting in a tweet Tuesday.

"So excited to join this amazing cast!!" she wrote.

Organized Crime will see Meloni reprise his role as Det. Elliot Stabler, a character he originally played in the first 12 seasons of SVU. The new series follows Stabler as he returns to the NYPD to battle organized crime after a devastating personal loss.

In addition, Organized Crime will see Meloni briefly reunite with SVU star Mariska Hargitay, who plays Det. Olivia Benson. The pair reunited on the show's set in January.

Organized Crime is expected to premiere on NBC in the spring.

Taylor is known for playing Camille Saroyan on Bones and Sibyl on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
