Blue Bloods has found a new partner for Danny Reagan.
Marisa Ramirez (Against the Wall, Body of Proof) has been cast on five episodes of the CBS drama as Detective Maria Baez. She will debut this Friday and has the potential to come on board as a series regular in the fall.
Ramirez will represent the third temporary partner for Danny, following a four-episode arc by Megan Ketch and a three-episode shiny by Megan Boone.
The series was forced to make these changes after an ugly dispute with Jennifer Esposito led to that star's departure from the drama.
