Sarah Shahi is in high demand!

The 32-year-old actress landed a recurring role in the new NBC show, Chicago Fire, as a successful businesswoman and love interest of Lieutenant Kelly Severide (played by Taylor Kinney). 

News of the part-Spanish star's new gig came one day after it was announced that the USA Network was pulling the plug on her legal drama-comedy, Fairly Legal, where the actress played a high-powered lawyer named Kate Reed.

According to TVGuide, the show racked in an estimated viewership of 4.6 million in the first season, but the second season dipped to 2.8 million viewers.

USA said in a statement to Deadline, “Sarah Shahi is undoubtedly a star and we're thrilled she'll be joining our sister network NBC on Chicago Fire. We are proud of Fairly Legal and thank the very talented cast and crew for two fantastic seasons.”

You can catch Sarah on Chicago Fire Wednesdays at 10pm ET/9pm CT.
