Rosewood Cast Photos

Toussaint , most recently seen in the Netflix original series Orange is the New Black, was a last minute addition to the one-hour procedural, and will play the mother of Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr. (Chestnut) and Pippy Rosewood (Dennis).

According to Toussaint, her character (Donna Rosewood) is really going to shake things up. “She’s the force that always stands over Dr. Beaumont,” Toussaint told the press at the show’s recent TCA panel. “She’s really going to challenge him.”

Morris echoed Lorraine’s sentiments, adding “The scenes with her were really intense. She’s amazing. I had to step my game up.”

Rosewood will premiere Wednesday, September 23, after Empire, and is slated for a 13-episode run.
