New project alert! Katrina is set to co-lead the CBS drama pilot, Alive, a modern interpretation of the classic Frankenstein tale. Ryan Phillippe and Aaron Staton are also set to star.
DEADLINE – Written/executive produced by Jason Tracey and directed/executive produced by Uta Briesewitz, Alive centers on Mark Escher (Phillippe), a San Francisco homicide detective who’s mysteriously brought back to life after being killed in the line of duty. But as he resumes his old life and he and his wife Elizabeth (Law) realize he isn’t the same person he used to be, they zero in on the strange man behind his resurrection: Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Staton).
Phillippe’s Escher, a San Francisco police investigator, was presumed dead after an attack and destructive fire at his home. Six months later, he shockingly reappears and is reunited with his wife, Elizabeth. But something has changed. A shadow has fallen across his sunny disposition, and he’s haunted by visions of the case he was working on when he died. He and Elizabeth will seek answers about who shot and abducted him, and what was done to him.
Law’s Elizabeth Lavenza, a pathologist/medical examiner, is stunned when her husband returns from the dead, and though she’s thrilled to have him back, she knows there’s a secret behind his disappearance, his reappearance and his new personality – and she thinks she knows exactly who’s responsible.
Staton’s Victor Frankenstein is a brilliant, slightly odd and driven – perhaps obsessed – scientist who is working on a secret, cutting-edge project. On the run from an ethics board in China, Victor is back in the U.S., where he works in a lab and is very involved in whatever it is that’s going on with Escher. He’s also Escher’s wife’s ex.
We would like to dedicate a post to say congratulations to Katrina and Keith who are expecting their first child together! Katrina made the announcement on her Instagram two days ago. We can’t wait to meet the little one!
Variety has reported that Katrina will be reprising her role as Nyssa Al Ghul for a single episode on Arrow later this season. She will be appearing in the 16th episode, entitled The Thanatos Guild. Last we saw Nyssa was on the Lian Yu island in the Season 5 finale.
“In an unforgettable episode that will change ‘Arrow’ forever, Katrina Law returns as the Daughter of the Demon, Nyssa Al Ghul,” executive producers Wendy Mericle and Marc Guggenheim said. “Nyssa comes to Star City to warn of an impending danger that will threaten everything we know and love.”
Crackle has released the first teaser trailer of The Oath, and has announced that the series will premiere on March 8, 2018!
Written and created by showrunner and former longtime Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Halpin (Hawaii Five-O), the 10-episode original series explores a world of gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend and sheds light on corrupt and secret societies that are nearly impossible to join. Only a select few make the cut – but once inside, members will do what they must to protect one another from enemies on the outside and from within their own ranks.
Katrina returned in the final two episodes of Arrow Season 5, and featured a showdown between sisters Nyssa and Talia al Ghul. I have added high-quality stills and high-resolution screencaps into the gallery. Apologies for the delay on these! No official word yet if she’ll be returning for Season 6, but based on the season finale, we’re hoping!

Former Training Day star Katrina Law is set as the female lead opposite Sean Bean in Crackle’s upcoming drama series The Oath, executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (Power) and his G-Unit Film & Television.
Written and created by former Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Halpin (Hawaii Five-O, Secrets and Lies), the 10-episode original series explores a world of gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend and sheds light on corrupt and secret societies that are nearly impossible to join. Only a select few make the cut – but once inside, members will do what they must to protect one another from enemies on the outside and from within their own ranks.
Law will play Karen Beach, a police officer, and the sole female member of the Ravens cop gang, who has a tendency to overcompensate by out-toughing the macho company she runs with and gets involved in a forbidden love affair with a member of a rival cop gang. Along with Bean, Law joins previously announced members of the ensemble cast Ryan Kwanten, Cory Hardrict and Arlen Escarpeta.
